Re: What about Burris "Black Diamond"?
>"One other thing. Most scope mfrs suggest starting out with the windage/elevation adjustments as close to the center of their travel as
possible. Using the Nikon/Black Diamond, it looks like we'll try to start out with the elevation adjustment the whole way at the bottom.
Does that cause any problems with the reticle being off-center?">
NO... most manufacturers don't even address this issue any more, cuz ANY of the mid range or better scopes can be used with the elevation at one or the other extream. THe cross hairs don't move, because that's not how the system workie... the elevation/windage turrets move a lens group that is located in front of the crosshairs, so it's the IMAGE that moves, not the hair.
All of my 1" scopes are mounted in Burris Signature "ZEE" rings, with the proper inserts so that the 100 zero is just a few moa off the bottom of the elevation turrets range.
Even with my B&L 10x Tac (which has 145moa of elevation), it is mounted in an adjustable ring-set, so the 100 zero is 2 moa off the bottom... it's on a 50 BMG rifle, and has a scope range of 2,700 meters with all of that elevation...
But the biggest advantage is that you never have to wonder where you have to be in the middle of the turret for zero... just go to the lowest "0", and you are back to your reference point.
