Old Burris Black Diamond

I have a Old Burris Black Diamond 8x32 on a 7stw. What is the best way to go about setting it up for a 1000 yrds?
As everyone knows, this old girl lacks moa elevation adjustment. I don't have the cash for a scope right now, so I am trying to get by with her.

Re: Old Burris Black Diamond

I agree with Tarey, you should have plenty with 20 MOA base. Using Berger's ballistic calculator and your info, you need ~23 MOA depending on other variables.

If your scope has 50 MOA (+25/-25) elevation adjustment, 25 scope MOA elevation + 20 MOA = 45 MOA.

Good luck!
