    I am going to buy a Burris Fullfield ll 4.5-14x42 ballistics plex reticle or a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 with the mill-dot reticle or the BDC one in the next day or so, they both cost pretty much the same but the Nikon has a side focus and the Burris doesn't.
    Looking for input to help me decide from people who have one of these or maybe both and which they like better.
    Thanks for your help :D

    I personally like the Nikon better. I would go with the Nikon and save the $50 and my more ammo.

    Between myself and my Dad, we have 10 Nikons and not a single issue. I have not used that particular scope, but in general they are great for the price.

    I bought both those exact scopes and sold the burris the day after getting the nikon.

    Just what I wanted to hear. Unanamus support for one or the other. Thanks guys, obviously I went with the Nikon mildot. It will be here on Friday and I am going to the range on Saturday to try it out.
