John Burns-Best of the West- equipment

I've been monitoring this forum for a bit, and see that John Burns, I assume from the Best of the West show, has posted here before. I did purchase the Beyond Belief DVD and do recall hearing that a second, more instructional type DVD is forthcoming.

I am too impatient and am inquiring as to what type of set ups he or the crew use?

Specifically the scope turrets.

Seems quite simple to just crank up to 450 and be done with it rather than checking charts and counting clicks. Can someone tell me who makes them and how to contact the company ???

Of course, also intersted in calibers and specs of rifles as well, but the turrets looked to be the most handy items I've seen.

WOW It never fails which forum you visit, once someone looks at your total posts, it's on.

I'll not even elaborate what my point was, you just go on and keep looking at your charts, and doing what you're doing. I am sure you're the greatest. Adios

Re: John Burns-Best of the West- equipment

Jesse Jaymes

Thanks for the interest in our show. These guys have given you the right place to get the Bullet drop compensator made.

The Long 1

On my rifle I shoot a 7mm 150 XBT @ 3450 fps. The G7 BC for that bullet is 0.245.

Lets use your first set of conditions (8000 ft, 20 deg temp, 50% humidity) and determine we will need to adjust the scope up 3.89 MOA from a 200 yds zero to our 450 yd zero.

In making a BDC we would put the 450 yd hash mark at 4 minutes.

When we run the numbers for your second set of conditions (2000 ft, 45 degs, 70% humidity) we get 4.10 MOA up to zero at 450 from our 200 yd zero.

I am failing to see any significant difference??

Both conditions require an adjustment of the scope of 4 MOA.

“JUST SPIN IT TO 450” will work very well.
