So I've recently started shooting with a scope (a VX-1 4-12 with a duplex reticle) and I have a few questions, I hope someone can answer my questions here. I realize I may have wrong expectations or I may very well be doing something wrong. I have installed the scope according to everything I read and saw. I put it on max magnification, installed it such that the picture through the scope fills the entire view, I adjusted the focus such that after concentrating on a far object and looking into the scope the reticle looks super sharp (before allowing my eye to adjust and focus on the reticle). Now here's my question, while actually shooting, with the scope at max magnification, the moment I start looking through the scope everything is super sharp, while aligning the cross-hair with the bulls eye and slowly pulling the trigger..gradually the cross-hair and reticle becomes fuzzy/blurred. I am not sure if this is the "normal" eye behavior (as it tries to focus on the far object such that the reticle - the near object - gets fuzzy) or if this means that I have to adjust the focus of the scope. I also noticed that with the scope at less than max magnification, say 8 or 6x, the reticle does not fuzz up as much, but then the target is also smaller.
