Anyone with an FFP scope with a minimum paralex of 50 yards answer me this one question please; On a lower or lowest magnification can you see a small target clearly at a much closer range than 50 yards? If so how close? (Yes that's 2 questions) Thanks

I'm not sure of the question however I have VCOG ffp scope made by Trijicon with a 1 to 6 magnification. I can clearly see at 25 feet at the 3x setting. I'm clearly reading the digital display temperature setting on the oven at 350 degrees at 25 feet. At higher magnification the digital disply get increasingly blurry.
The faster I go, the older I get.

I have a Schmidt & Bender PM2

If used below 10 x mag will focus down to about 15 yards, I think they do a Field target version that will focus down to 9 yards

Link to the product

You will pay about £2,000 for it but if you want the best this is it

verminthunter,

I have a few different March scopes,of the FFP items the 3-24x52 will focus on on 24x down to 6 paces, the 5-40 x 56 on 40x about 10 paces, both on their minimum power settings are around 3-4 paces.(sorry about 'paces, just gone to see what they would do in the house in answer to your question)

I have a Kahles K24i 6-24x56. FFP.

On 24x I can focus down to about 30yds and on 6x its down to around 12 yds (both with the parallax adjuster on minimum, which is marked 50m).
