Parallax on a scope

I'm currently doing some .22 benchrest shooting using a Sightron 10 to 50 x 60 scope.

At 50m I'm trying to eliminate parallax error by using the side wheel focusing and the eye bell focusing but no matter what I do when I move my head the reticule still moves on the target.

Has anyone had this problem on any higher mag scopes?

I had a stroke two years ago and lost some vision in my right eye around the 2 0'clock position and I wondering if this might be contributing to my parallaxing difficulties.

I suspect sightron intend this scope for use on centrefire rifles and therefore parallax will be set at 100yds.

It is a bit of a battle finding decent glass for .22 rimfires or airguns where the parallax needs to be the 50m or less that you are looking for.

I've had quite a few c/f scopes on .22's before and it's always a compromise for visual acuity.
 
I generally go for sharp focus and ignore the distance marks not sure if this is the right procedure it mostly works for me
