Re: Burris?????

you can get the 6-24x50mm version with 1/4" adjustments. it's a different model number. You don't have to get the 1" adjustments

NO reason you say? Who are you to decide what my reasons should be?

If you want to shoot long range, and spin turrets to get there, then you do need the ruggedness of a NF/USO/S&B/Hensoldt. Attend a long range match, or a Hogan's Alley type match where you face all sorts of obstacles, and you need the ruggedness of NF/USO/S&B/Hensoldt.

Gotta love it when someone takes it upon themselves to decide whether my choices pass general muster.

sorry, I must have touched a nerve there. If you've convinced yourself you need something, by all means get it. I DO shoot long range, frequnetly, and still don't need the $2000.00 scope, BECAUSE, the gongs dont shoot back .

Run a 20 MOA box with your wonder scope and see what you get. You're so entrenched in your "you don't need that if someone isn't shooting back" mantra, you refuse to entertain the truth: A better scope than yours gives that shooter an advantage over you regardless of the course of fire.

I have not "run the test", but I have used my scopes to 1100 yds. plus, and BTW, i have had NF scopes, just don't feel I need them for most of my shooting, as I don't shoot past 1100 yds much anymore. The zeiss and burris xtr are used most, and hensoldt diatal just cause i like it.

Re: Burris?????

All this talk of 100-yard+ plus shots is a lot of hot air...

No disrespect gentlemen, but there are very few people alive that can make 1000-yard first shot kill shots, much less 1000+ yards, and they are usually serious shooters that train almost every day, even when its raining...

Doping the wind is about the hardest thing in the world to do but even a 10-yr old can dope range with a laser range finder. Try doping your ranges with your MilDots without lying and then lets start talking about 'effective ranges'.

Sure it's nice to try, and expensive toys sure do lots for some folks' egos but not much for shooting ability, though I will agree that a Tasco scope wont compare to a NF.

The point is, buy what you want and what works for you, even if it's in your mind :-D

Re: Burris?????

Wow !!! this thing got heated.

I was going to comment that I though Burris scopes were very good and most of all very,very
rugged.

I only own a scope once that won't track when doing the box test. if it fails it goes, never to
return.

That being said I have quite a few Burris scopes and they all track perfictly. I have lots of other brands and they do to.

The Burris scopes are a very good buy for a low end scope and in some cases the best buy
for it's intended use.

Get what you want and can afford.
