bravo4, yes, i was shooting at 100 yards. i've been shooting for quite awhile, but i've only been shooting out to about 300 until the past few months. i have a browning a-bolt 7mm rem mag that i usually shoot quite a bit so i'm used to at least a little bit of recoil. i have the dies for the 7rum so i plan on getting into hand loading. used to a little bit, but it was about 15 years ago and all i really did was press out primers and help my dad so thats all pretty much new to me. luckily, my dad still has 2 presses. i'm starting to think about going with a different scope, maybe a fixed 10x, not sure what brand yet. i used up quite a bit of elevation on the burris while sighting in, took a good 120 clicks up to sight in at 100 yrds.

If you like the scope keep it and get a 20moa base or the Burris zee rings with inserts. You can customise your own moa adjustments that way without touching the scope. Turn the elevation turret a couple moa from bottoming out and adjust the inserts till you are close to sight in and then fine tune with turret. Save you a lot of money. If you want a good reliable fixed 10X look at the Super Sniper. Best bang for the buck.

The Super Sniper is a great fixed power scope. I took mine top to bottom about a dozen times on the elevation turret and set it back on my zero and it was spot on. The glass is pretty good too. If you plan on hunting anything under a couple hundred yards or during low light a 10X is all the power you want. I have the 16X model and it has a small exit pupil to let light in. When the sun is up, it is awsome. I made the mistake of hunting with it last year. It almost cost me. The Burris would be a good choice. I would see how repeatable it is and go from there.

i'm thinkin about the 16x super sniper, i'd imagine it would work a little better than the 10x for longer ranges. i won't be hunting with it at all, just some long range (for me) target shooting and the occasional groundhog on my uncles farm
