Burris Scope Question



Log in to see fewer ads
The scope is a Burris (Made in the USA) 6 - 18 Fullfield AO.
There are two dots on the objective bell as shown in the photo.



Burris Technical advised to use the dot that aligns with the elevation turret but the 50 cannot be advanced to that turret. Every mark from infinity to 100 aligns with that dot except the 50.
The second dot is 90 degrees to the first dot and when the 50 is aligned with the second dot I can only assume that the purpose of the second dot is to establish parallax at 50 yards. Regardless, it appears to be parallax free at 50 when aligned with the second dot and parallax free when the 100 is aligned with the top dot.

Apparently no one within Burris technical staff was employed when this scope was manufactured. There are no instructional manuals available from this period.

Any help would be appreciated.

I own the exact same scope. Mine only has the center mark though. Ignore the the other one. Good news is that it is a pretty decent scope. Enjoy.

In the picture, the objective is turned as far right or counter clockwise as possible and the 50 will not go to the top dot.
By turning to the left or clockwise, the 50 can be set on the side dot. The rest of the marks align with the top dot and when the infinity aligns with the top dot, the side dot is between the 100 and 150 marks.
It is a mystery . . . It is a good scope.

I hope this is not too confusing. First point is I have and had a big number of scopes with parallax adjustment capability. I cannot point to one of them whose yardage indicator is/was accurate. Sad, but true. For that reason, I recommend adjusting it until the parallax is eliminated on the target. That is the best you can expect from the scope. If you really need accurate ranging, use a laser rangefinder.

I had the same scope in the 3x9 version. Use the first dot for up to 50 yards, and the second dot for anything further.

Burris told me they don't have any parts for fixing these older scopes. I brought it in for some repairs 6 months ago, and they just gave me a brand new scope instead.

Burris is a really good company!
