I have a Burris Model 200335 Fullfield E1 4.5x14x-42 mm Ballistic Plex E' Reticle mounted on a Mossberg MVP.  I have been shooting at 100 yards.  The parallax is set to 100 yards.  The rifle is on a bench on a solid foundation. I have my eye within the eye relief.  I set the cross hairs on the target center.  If I shift my eye left or right the cross hairs move fairly significantly right or left.  In the vertical direction there is very little change in the cross hair position when I move my eye vertically.  Of course, that makes hitting the target difficult.  Is the problem with me or the scope?

Rick, read this over a couple of times.  I think it will help.

Be aware that the markings on a parallax knob are approximations, not calibrated. Just because the knob has a 100 setting does not mean the scope is calibrated to be parallax-free at 100.

The same is true of most scope's power ring also, but that is a topic for another time.

Did you carefully adjust the eyepiece for your eye?
