I just bought a Burris scope (for My Model 70 Coyote Light .25 WSSM) with a "Ballistic Plex" and I'm a little confused how to make use of it- particularly if I want to sight it in a 200 yards.
On the Plex label for the .25-06 (which has the same ballistics as the 25 WSSM) there are seperate hash-marks for 100 and 200 yards- one below the other. Then considerably lower are the hash-marks for 300, 400 & 500 yards. I canclearly see how to use the plex if I wanted to sight it in at 100 yards- I'd put the 'traditional' crosshair hash-mark on the tearget and fire and if I wanted to shoot at a target at one of the other ranges I'd just use the appropriate crosshair has-mark below it.
So, if I want to sight it in at 200 yards, which they say you can, which hash-mark do I use? Do I use the top one- the 'traditional' crosshair? Or do I just sight it in using the lower one labled 200 yards and then I can assume that it's also sighted in at 100 but I still use the same hash-marks as in the 100-yard setup? This seems to kinda defeat the purpose as I wouldn't be able to make use, visually, of the outer lines of the plex EXCEPT at 100 yards- the very reason many people, like me, sight their guns in at 200 yards.
Can someone explain this to me please?
