Hi,

Have 2 questions:

1. Side focus on my Black Diamond have a little play, before focus, ie it ok????? But it is working fine, I think!

2. I have a Ballistic MilDot reticle. Although, it's said, that sighted at 100m on cross, on second line it will be 200m, it isn't! It is actually 20cm down. I have a .308win, and shooting with Norma Diamond line, 168gr!

Thanks for answer!

Hello

You got the wrong scope for your caliber.

The Ballistic Mil-dot is for magnum and flat

shooting cartriges. You should sell your scope

and get the 10x  with the ballistic plex or the

12x with rhe regular Mil-dot..

You do not need to sell your scope (unless you want to sell it to me for half price).

 

If you experiment a little you'll probably find that at a different magnification setting it works just fine.  You can also try to sight it in at 200yards and use the next holdover mark at 300 yards.

 

If you post the ballistics of your load, I can help you calculate how to use the reticle the best way.

Thanks, guys!

I wrote Burris, they send me back spreadsheet with compensation for my load and caliber! Now it's great! Everything works fine! Now it's even better, and it suits for 100Yr, 150, 200, 250, 300!!! I'm really glad! And no problem with Burris!

P.S. And I won't sell my Burris, It's great!

And what about play on my Burris's side focus?!?!?!?
