Default [Tactical Shooting] Precision Aiming and Rangefinding

I've been reading the rules on Precision Aiming carefully, and there seems to be an erratum in the example on pp 26-27 of Tactical Shooting.

Ed Adamski, the shooter in the example, has Acc 6 for a Fine rifle, +3 Acc for his scope, and +3 Acc for knowing the exact range. So far, so good.

his limit for the Precision Aiming bonus is the lower of the scope bonus (+3) and the Acc bonus (+6).
OK, still good, but now we look at the "Rangefinding" box next to that paragraph, where there's a sentence that says:

If using a scope, the +3 adds to its Acc bonus.
That seems to imply that the scope bonus becomes +6, and therefor the limit for the Precision Aiming bonus is +6. Is this right?
