So I got my Burris Fullfield II 4.5-14x42 mounted today and attempted to sight it in. I noticed a few weird things right off of the bat. The first ones is the paralax adjustments don't seem anywhere close. However, I know this sometimes happens and it even says in the manual they might be off. I found that with it set on 100 yards the picture was very blurry at 100 yards. If I set it between 50-100 so around where I'd guess 75 is, it seemed to work great at 100. I made a mark here and I guess this is normal.

The next issue and this is the biggest imo. It seems like if I put up or down pressure on the eyepiece it seems like it moves just slightly. It looks like the cross hairs are jumping up and down by doing this even with the rifle 100% still. I'm guessing the cross hairs aren't moving, but the glass in the eye piece making it seem as if the cross hairs are. Now, I've noticed in all of my other scopes if I loosen the eye piece to adjust focus they do this too. However, once I tighten the lock ring down on most of them, it doesn't do it anymore and the eye piece is 100% tight. Since this scope isn't designed like that it doesn't have a lock ring to lock the eye piece down since it's always turning. Anyone else experienced this? Is it going to cause me problems shooting? Should the eye piece be 100% wobble free, or should you be able to move it slightly like this by pushing up and down on it? If any of you guys have this scope could you please let me know?

The other question I have which isn't really particular to this scope is if I adjust the AO will it hit the same poi? Like say I have it sighted in at 100 yards with the ao set on 100 yards. Then I adjust the ao to infinity, or 400 yards, but still shoot at 100 yards, will it shoot to the same spot, or somewhere different?

I tried to sight it in and I'd put 2-3 in the bullseye, then 2 or 3 about 1" high and 1" right. This repeated itself over and over, so I'm not sure if it was something with the scope, or if it was just me not shooting well today.
Thanks guys.

Perhaps a dumb thought, but perhaps the barrel was heating up causing POI shift?

Nope, I was letting it cool after each 3 shot group. This gun doesn't heat up bad enough to change the POI until after 5 shots so 3 shots groups has always been more than enough. I put the Nikon back on the gun and took it to sight in 2 days later. To my surprise shooting it at 100 yards, it was sighted in perfectly even after having taken it out of the rings and putting it back.  I couldn't believe this. I shot 3 shots in a row, and put all three in the bullseye in it's usual sub moa group. Took a few more shots and they all hit right where I expected them to. I think it's definitely the fact that if the eye piece moves at all which it can on the Burris, it makes it appear the crosshairs are in a different spot.
