Both my 3-9x40 scopes reside largely at 4-5x all the time. I only use 3x when I want a broader field of view for searching out bodies, and 9x when I'm observing treeline 300ft+ whie on 'overwatch' for base defence. Radiowaves travel faster, farther and are more accurate than any airsoft gun out there.
