Re: absolute best scope???

Boy, the way S1 and DC were going at it sounds like someone I know, but it's Burris vs. Leupolds, I agree there is no such thing as the "best scope", from what I've seen, FOR THE MONEY NOW, I believe the Burris Signatures offer "THE BEST SCOPE", I have 2ea 4-16s and 2ea 6-24, when I compare my scopes to a VarixIIILRT 8.5-25 on the same power mine are brighter and as far as clarity goes, to close to call. I can only shoot out 300yds on my range but a target of a 4" prairedog is as clear as a bell at that range, compared with a $1500+ Swarovski on the same power I could see no differance looking out to 800 yds, and my 6mm Rem is shooting .217-.322"(5 shots@100yds) so for my money, it's Burris Sigs. and since Burris has such a great customer service and warranty thats all the better if my scopes would happen to falter. Like Boyd said 'no such thing, J [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: absolute best scope???

308, just e-mailed Burris, they said the 4-16 BD will have enough and more than likly the 6-24 BD would, if not, you could always put a .010" shim under your rear base, or try some Signature rings. I went the 4-16 Signature model with Ballistic mil-dot route, whereas if I want to shoot to 1k I'll zero my rifle @400yds and the point where the thick bottom reticle meets the thin reticle will be my 1000yd zero, what Burris said to do is zero your rifle at 1000yds or whatever you'll be shooting at with the lower point on the mil-dot. They'll be glad to help you out if need be. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Jay
