Re: nikon buckmaster/horizontal adjustment problem

green 788,i worked on the setup for about 1 1/2 hour today.got it preety close.1st i set the elevation turret so that i still have 30 moa adjustment.next i set the bore on a red spray paint can top about 100 yards out.i played with different plastic inserts to get the bore and crosshairs close.got that straitened out.next,i set the windage adjustment in the middle of travel.i then did like you said,i turned the inserts in the front ring from horizontal to vertical.bingo!i have plenty of windage adjustment now.o by the way, the windage crosshair travel goes "lock to lock" now.i've got a 30-06 shooting 180 smk/sgk bullets hopefully at 2750 fps(load development) out to 700-750 yards.i'm sure the 30 moa of travel i still have is enough.the scope's travel is 9 turns/6 moa per turn= 54 moa adjustment. thank you for your time.saved me a lot of agrivation.jason

Good deal. Those Burris Pos-aligns are a great invention. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

For your 180's in that 30-06, work up carefully to 56.0 grains of IMR 4350. Winchester or Remington cases... That load will almost certainly be very accurate, and it'll do the MV you're after, provided you have a 24" barrel, or a very quick 22" barrel.

I don't mean to take all the fun out of load development, but that's where you'll probably end up--right at 56 grains--if you choose the all time greatest 30-06 powder, which is IMR 4350. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
