4.5X-14X-42mm they had on sale at the time. I have found these are very nice for the hunting I do and figured since the LGS was having a free finance sale giving me a year to pay them off I might as well get a couple. Trouble started when I walked by the used gun rack first and saw the laminate stock and bull barrel. Then I walked out with the STW and the two scopes.
So mine is sporting one of those two Burris. These have the ballistic plex reticle in them and it matches up perfectly with the Federal factory 150gr Solid Base loads I am using. In fact that load is listed in their drop sheet which accompanies the scopes. I simply had to zero it at 200yds and the rest fall right into place out to 600. So far I haven't shot it past that, but really haven't needed to. Most things have been within 3-400yds and the 150's have reliably put it on the ground for me.
Once things settle down around here I am going to work up some new loads using the 154gr bullets from Horandy and which ever one hits the closest to the same drops will be the one I go with next. I just hope I can get them to shoot as well as the Noslers have. If not, well I DO have a small quantity of them on hand as well, so we'll see.
