What about Burris "Black Diamond"?

Gents -
I'm looking at Burris' Black Diamond 8 - 32 x 50. It's a 30 mm tube with 110" of elevation adjustment.

Any yays or nays?

Thanx,

R-WEST

R-West ,

I have the signature series.. 6-24.. WOW it is only a 1" tube but the clarity and brightness are unbelievable. I am more than happy and Impressed with it. The Black Diamond series is supposed to be the "top of the line series" and I have heard nothing but good stuff about them...

Natchez and MidSouth list them for around $575.00. Seems like a pretty good deal.

Very clear optics. They're among the best. The scope is very bulky and heavy though. Looks like a German handgrenade... probably weighs as much as one too....

CatShooter -

You are correct. I should have checked it out better.

I'll be using Leupold's LR bases which offer 20 MOA, if I remember correctly. The rifle is a 300RUM w/30" barrel, and we're figuring on 220MK's at 3000 FPS.

I'm open to other choices. Does a Leupold or Nikon offer more adjustment?

Seems pretty stupid of them to offer what is obviously a LR scope without much elevation adjustment, doesn't it?

Thanx,

R-WEST

Gonna throw in somthing else to the mix..

Yup you guessed it .. how about a nightforce?

I'm not sure what your budget is but many reticle styles all illuminated and way more adjustment than needed....
