How much parallax is acceptable?

I have two Burris scopes and they both seem to have a heap of parrallax.

If I move my eye up and down or back and forth, the cross hairs move about one and a half minutes of angle on a target at 300 yards away.

These scopes do not have an adjustable objective lens. How does this amount of parrallax compare with other scopes that have no parrallax adjustment?

Re: How much parallax is acceptable?

Short answer is ZERO!

Most fixed objective scopes are set to have zero parallax at something like 150 yds.

However, with the Leuy VX-IIs that I've had parallax has not been a problem.

A workaround is to back off the scope enough so that you have a black ring, small or large, around the reticle center. This is not the best for hunting except for chucks and such and targets, but it helps w/the parallax problelm.
