Two clarifications needed...

1. Scorpio's Gauge ability. Can I declare that I shoot a model, measure the 20" range, find out that I'm about 2" short and then reduce MIS and POW by 1 and thus have the target model in range?

I'd say no, because AFAIK the attack immediately fails once the 20" distance is measured as not enough, however I'd like an official confirmation/denial...

2. Magistratum's faction ability. When my magistratum model is hit by a POW 4 attack then the damage is halved. Now, since charge bonus and powerful fighting style add 1 to the POW of the attack, I'd say that a base POW 4 attack with one of these two bonuses becomes effectively POW 5 and the damage is not halved - this one is pretty clear for me. If, however, the attacking model does not have these, but has other bonuses to damage rolls, like Reagent of Strength (which gives +2 to damage rolls, not POW) for example, the damage is still halved, right?

2. As far as i know:
4 pow + 2 dmg = attack halved
5 pow = attack not halved

ad 2: Mnil got it right, it's about the (final) POW of the attack, so other modifications of the damage roll are not taken into account.

ad 1: No, that would be a kind of premeasuring. You increase your range by decreasing MIS and POW before you actually shoot.
