Re: Burris BD side focus

OK,

I just bought a CZ 550 Laminate in 22-250.
I got a great deal at $480 out the door with 1" rings.
Now do I buy a Burris Sinature 8-32 or a Black Diamond?

Is the Black Diamond worth the extra $200?
If I get a Black Diamond I need to get new rings and that's another $60.
Any thoughts?

By the way, I am totaly new to Varmint Hunting. How do I find them? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Burris BD side focus

Austria, My son's 22-250 sports a 6-24x Sig. as does my VS in 223, most excellent scopes, very clear, I'd stick to this power and models for varmint hunting, reason being, they have enough elevation for how far a 22-250 can reach, son's scope has the Balistic mil-dot, which is about 90 bucks more, but don't have to worry about holdover since it's calibrated for the 55gr 22-250, and other flat shooting rounds. The reason you might want to stay away from the 8-32 is mirage on 32x would be horrifying, and it's bad enough on 24x, that's more than enough power to see a praire dog at 500 yds, Bal. mil-dot subtends .10" at 100yds, so that works out to .50" at 500.
