I have one and I love it. The BDC reticle gets in my way. I wish they had a green dot.

Just my opinion. I also have the BDC on a couple of my scopes, I don't think it's needed if you are only shooting out to 300yrs. Sight in at 200 and you should only be 7.5-8inches low at 300.

MOST experienced/accomplished extreme long-range shooters I know seem to prefer turret adjustments over the BDC. One of the best long-range shooters I know (who is also an accomplished deer hunter) perfers his long-range deer rifles sighted in at 300 yards, using a standard duplex type reticle. He's says with the 300-yd sight-in, it's a "chip-shot" (for him) out to 400 yards, and he wouldn't take a shot much past 300 anyway. But then we're talking about a guy who spends several hours monthly shooting at 300 yards.

Part of why a 300-yd sight-in could be more appealing is simply because it gives you less to think about, just knowing that holding about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of a deer's chest, you have nothing farther to think about regarding yardage out to 300 yards. Especially if you don't plan to take a shot over 300 yards anyway.

burris fullfield II in 4.5-14x42 is a good one that has the ticks. I can easily shoot to 600 yds with mine on a 300wsm.

i look at burris, seem like a good quality scope, the most I probably shoot 400 tops in a 3006. i want to get a timney or jewell trigger and take the pull down to a lb or 1.5 lb
