A friend of mine loves my Pentax PF 80 ED, but can't afford one. He is considering the Burris Landmark 20-60X -80. All he wants to use it for is to be able to see 6mm. bullet holes, on white paper at 300 yards with this spotter. Burris claims this spotter can resolve bullet holes at 1000 yards. (I have never seen this spotter used at any of the 1000 yard matches I go to) It won't be used on rainy days, or very cold days. (below 40) Will this spotter work for him at 300 yards ?  Thanks

Blackbird.........................I do not own a Burris Landmark, but I do own an Alpen 20-60 X 80...... I have no problem viewing my .30 cal. holes at 300 yards on white paper..........The question as far as the Burris is concerned is it`s optic quality.......My Alpen for example, has Bak 4 prisms, porro design, fully coated lenses, identical in quality to the Vortex or the Legend without the ED, which for my range purposes was not needed.........The Burris, if it has those features, should be able to pick up the holes on white paper at 300 yards........At first, I was using white background paper targets. You may want to consider using splatter targets. For me anyway, the holes have better visibility when using the splatters....................Try calling Burris direct and ask about the optical quality of the Landmark and what their reco`d max. range is for that scope....Or, perhaps a dealer in your area may have one for you to peek through...........I hope that my info helps you as a guide to determine if the Burris can do what you wish for............................Big Squeeze

 Pulled out the trusty Swarovski 8x30 Laser Guide

http://www.swfa.com/p-2014-swarovski-8x30-laser-guide-rangef inder.aspx   

The best range that I could find around 300 yrd was 334 yards.

Sunny, but a little cloudy, and no rain. Used the Burris 20x60x-80 Landmark Spotter.

Had to put it on the 60x just to see 334 yards. The white sign I could

see with no problem, but wanting to see 6mm bullet holes would be

difficult to see in my opinion...

 

I give it  out of
