Re: Looking for a new Scope

The Burris Blackdimond is a very under rated scope IMO. They were built to compeat with the EURO scopes, and side by side they do just that. That little nub ya'll are talking about is a pos-lock for the reticle. and it works very well. NF uses a very stiff spring piece of metel. I think you will be very happy with your Burris scope. My 4X16X50 did not come with targert knobs, and just last week I sent it to Burris to have them install target knobs. I can't wait to get it back eather so I can play with the elev for LR shooting. In Low light condictions Burris hangs with the best. Bill Maylor.

Thanks BIgbuck
BB, I ended up getting the BD for $806 & some change since that was the price of the SIII MD that I originally ordered. The shipping was free(UPS Grnd)and there was no sales tax. Optics Planet was a pleasure to work with so far and I'll definitely do business with them again.

Bill, I'll be putting a Remington Model 700SPS Stainless 270WSM under it. The gun itself is stock for now but I plan on starting with a trigger job and a HS Precision Sporter stock w/BBs.

I'm new to long range shooting and this will be my first LR semi-custom rifle so I'll be taking my time with it and trying pic y'alls brains threw the process.

I'd also like to thank all of you for your relpies and advice on all of threads I started in the past couple of weeks. I really appreciate it big time, I'll keep y'all updated on how things work out with the combo.

Thank's again from your cajun Compadre!
