Premier Reticles 5-25

I just bought a Premier Reticles 5-25 riflescope and it is gorgeous. When I talked to a PR rep I asked him if it was zeroed in to 100 yds and he said yes. I thought about it for awhile later and asked myself what 'equavalent' round do they use to zero it. Was it a 308 M118LR, a 30-06 with 125 or 200 gr bullets, a nato 5.56, or what. Does anyone have any idea?

Jim

Re: Premier Reticles 5-25

I think you mean calibrated (the reticle)? I don't know what bullet they would have used... I'm assuming this is a BDC type reticle... (?)

No. It is a Gen2XR

there's the link... that's a straight mil based reticle, with the bells and whistles added... it is not calibrated to any particular cartridge, like a BDC reticle.

You can make a drop chart for hold-overs, but the better thing is to dial the shots with the elevation turret.

Dan,

I don't want to sound arrogant but I know all that. Before they ship it it is zeroed to 100 yards. All I want to know is what is used as a standard round per se as to what they zero it at. a 22LR, a 308, a 50 cal, a 338. There has to be something they use as a guide. I guess I will have to call them up Tues and find out.

Re: Premier Reticles 5-25

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I'm wondering why it matters? This isn't a BDC reticle that is tuned to some generic load for a specific caliber. When you mount this scope there are all sorts of variables that can effect where it will be aiming....base cant, machining errors, etc. This is where boresighting comes in. Premier has no way of knowing all these in order to perfectly sight in a scope for you before it is shipped. Mount the thing, boresight and fine-tune. Simple as that. Remember the KISS rule.

Re: Premier Reticles 5-25

maybe you can teach me something here then...

They zero the scope for 100 yards, and it's supposed to be zeroed for your rifle and mounting system when you take receipt of the scope and mount it?

I'm not trying to sound arrogant either... I'm obviously misunderstanding you I guess...

Having a scope zeroed for any-rifle-USA, not to mention any mounting system... I ain't gettin' it (?)
