Another stupid question from me.

 

I am waiting for the new Burris Fullfield Tactical scopes to arrive.  However, that scope along with other so-called tactical scopes have "target turrets" that have no hash marks that are visible.  Others are the Leupold PR tactical scopes.  However, the Super Sniper and Mark 4 Leupold LR scopes have the hash marks.  I am assuming that the scopes with the visible marks are made to "return zero" easily???  If so, then how can someone "return zero" the target turrets without hash marks?????

 

In my opinion, only scopes with the easily return to zero features are really tactical scopes. 

 

Please explain how the target turrets without visible hash marks work.

Brother,

I think your looking at the turret caps that come with scope.

When you pop the turret caps off, I bet the turrets are marked.

 

The SS and Loopie don't have caps, thus you see the actual turret.

 

Let us know how you like the FFII Tactical.

I almost bought that scope, but I didn't want to give my arch nemisis, koshkin , the satisfaction.

That is the issue.  I can't see the darn features I am looking for in pictures (except for the SS, etc.)  As you know, I have a SS and am waiting for the low IOR rings.  Then I will repost the pics of the Rem 700 Tac 6.8 SPC.

 

But, I guess I need specific info on the turrets and markings.  I like Sightrons, too.  Same deal.  Where are the marks.  I guess the manufacturer is the one to ask.

Henry....nice job.  This site does give me some insight on the systems.  I see that some knobs have dust covers over the tower.  I still like the big open knobs of the SS and Leupy. Glad I have the SS.  I have not been to the range with it yet.  Looking forward to it.

 

The idea of the Burris Fullfield II Tac was for mounting on my AR carbine.  It now wears a Sightron 3x9 SI when it is not wearing an EOTech.  I am guessing the Burris is at least equal to the low end Leupold PR scope.

The PR has covers over the marked target knobs and the clicks are crisp.

My guess is that the Burris Fulfield II is exactly the same as the same power Fulfield  hunting scope as far as glass but with target style turrets. I have a Leu PR 3-9 duplex and it is quite useable, but about the same glass as their lower end hunting scopes certainly not as impressive as my Leu Mark 4 LR Tacticals, but you ought to get something for three times the price..

You might get better glass with the Burris and probably a better reticle for the price since it cost an extra hundred to get a mil dot on a Leu PR which is outrageous. 

(boy did it hurt to say that - Koshkin). 

 I still am a little put out with Burris Customer Service but thats another story.

Actually I would stay with the EOTech if you already have one. I mean really - you battle sight the iron sights at 300 meters and dont adjust for closer distances, only for longer distances and after about 300 meters you better be using a .308  anyway if you want to get a one shot knockdown. Where the AR and M-16a2 come into all their usefullnes is that they are light weight fast and accurate but the bullet is light and runs out of energy at longer distance. The closer the threat the bigger the gun the farther away the threat the bigger the gun .223 is for the middle ground that 50 to 300 meters where the enemy is a real threat to you. If they are closer than 50 meters I want a 12 guage.  Hooah

Well I just ordered the Burris FF II Tactical 2x7 from SWFA.  I will let you know what I think when I get it to the field.  It will go on the AR carbine.  Of course, they are not yet in stock.

Great thing is it will go into a Wilson Combat Lo Mount one-piece mount.  This is pretty easily detached with two thumbscrews.  Then the EOTech is mounted in a LaRue EOTech QD mount and cowitnesses using a LaRue BUIS. 

 

I love my toys!

I've got a FFII 2-7x32 (the non-tactical version) and it is a very nice little scope.  I think you'll be happy with yours.
