Re: getting setup?
You'd probably be better off in the "basics -starting out area" rather the the hunting.
Read in the technical help area at the top of the categories page there is an article Len posted by Darrell Holland -very informative on mounting a scope "" right "".
All of those articles are great -i reread them a month ago and am glad i did.
Here's something i did a while back in preparation for mounting a new scope.
You want to be very near the center of your scopes click range -you can try to count all the clicks then go back half that number -or center the clicks by looking into the scope w/ the scope pointed at the bathroom mirror.Hold the scope pressed to the mirror w/ the light on overhead -you'll see the crosshair plus its reflection -line the crosshair up w/ the turrets.
Bang you's in the middle ..
Anyway do some reading up there and you'll be glad you did ,best of luck.-Mike
ps sure wish i had some burris signature rings !!!!!! hello burris time to go to work...
Edited to say --go to biggameinfo.com and plug in your details -elevation,bullet bc,velocity or apprx. velocity etc. it will give you a drop sheet generally close enough to get you on paper out to 5-600yds. -then you can verify 'your' rifle.See ya
