Burris Scope Deal at Cabela,s

If anyone is looking for a good scope for one of there new toys. You guys may want to check cabela,s online specials they have a Burris Fullfield 2 4.5X14X42 Ballistic Plex Rifle Scope and a 12X24 Spotting Scope Package for only 339.99. Anyone familiar with the Burris,s knows that the combination of these two items is normally $550. I purchased a set of them and they are very nice have yet to try the rifle scope out but the spotting scope is great for a hunter who doesnt want to be burdened by a lunker of a scope when out chasing 4 legged critters. Just thought some of you might be interested.

I don't see where to choose the caliber of the scope. Am I just missing it?

Burris Scope

Your probably wondering the same thing I wondered when I first looked at those. There isnt a seperate scope for each caliber it is one scope with basically a bulet drop compensation for each caliber. For any given caliber each line represents the yardage then you have to basically figure in a correction for the bullet drop. Maybe it would just be easier this way I will put a link up. Check out table 1 that gives you the breakdown for each caliber and type of bullet.Hope this helps.
