Re: need some input
Ive got Burris FF2 4.5X14X42 P/A with the BPLEX reticle on my 270wsm, that is amazingly accurate with 140 Accubonds out to 600yds. Im planning on buying another one in the Tacticle model (same scope, crosshairs, etc. but has tall Tac. turrits) for my 300 wby untill I can afford a Leupold Mark 4. At wich time the Burris will be put on my 338 win mag. I have a Nikon 4.5x14 S/F with BDC That Ill probably put on my 30-06.
I like compensating reticles on my hunting rifles, but the tac knobs on the burris will help dialing in the wind. Its kinda the perfect step between the compensating reticle and the standard on the Leupold, Where I have to dial both. On my dedicated L/R rifle (300wby) I want to dial both. But the burris will break me in 1 turrit at a time till I get to that point.
Tikamike shoots a Zeiss with a Rapid-Z 800 with his shortmag, and loves it.
It all depends how far you want to shoot, and what kind of hunting/shooting style you have as to wich style (drop comp, or dial up). IMO drop comp is easiest to 600 yds. for hunting purposes. Anything farther Id dial it.
Hows that for muddying the water...........sorry. There's lots of great choices.
