Thanks for the video - I think.
Had to stop watching it, due to the stomach churning camera movement.
But then I get motion sickness real easy.
How about using a tripod next time, just for me if no one else.
Appreciate it.

Ahh, much better.
But I still vote for the tripod.
Or less beer for the camera man.
Neat trick for the scope.
Thanks.

Hey!!!!!!!!!

Pretty slick, I'll try it.

Also, how'd you get white markings on the dials, mine are green and a pain.

Finally, how many rounds through the rig, and what caliber?

that scope is a mil/mil version sold by Midway. those turrets were marked that way from the factory... the scope is on one of our training rifles for the long range school, a Savage 110FP in .308, with around 3000 rounds (give or take) down the 24" barrel. It shoots better than some of the customs that guys show up with, to be honest...

I have Burris Signature rings on the rifle, with a 20 MOA offset to raise the scope tube up in the back, for increased elevation for long range work. If you have a flat scope base, you may need an extra rubber washer under the turret cap. Sanding the nylon spacer down a bit can be done if the scope won't return to its 100 yard zero after the washer and spacer are installed.

I wouldn't recommend leaving out the rubber washer... that helps to cushion the turret as it is coming to a stop.

10x

My 10x is MOA variety on sale from Midway I think, and came with the hard to see green markings. Awful

Its on a .22, no kiddin', a HB practice/trainer type.

Sounds like your scope is holding up well. This 1ox is the first Bushnell I've had in a long while.

I will try the washer and insert trick.
