I recently found out that it is possible to send in used scopes to Burris to have them retro fitted with a new reticle. I have the handgun 3-12X with the regular duplex and I am curious if anyone here has used this scope with the balistic plex. I plan to use this scope on a 223 for rock chucks. The scope is not on the barrel yet, so I figured if I'm going to send it in I may as well do it now. What do you guys think? What will it cost?

Burris can convert the scopes only if they are the new single tube design, they can't/won't do the two piece tubes. I've heard contendernut's thoughts from others that have used both plexs'. Have you ever shot through a scope w/ballistic plex? I haven't, and like you are interested in them.

The bottom post is thin and the dots are rather small. If I were hunting praire dogs or ground hogs, I would probably like it.

Burris Bal Plex

I have a Burris 2x7. I sent it in for the Bal Plex reticle. I love it. I didn't think so after I first got it back and mounted it. I have in on an Encore 7mm08 with the heavy bbl. I am still working out my loads but the main crosshair dead on at 100yds put the next lower crosshair dead on at 200yds. I need to play around with it some more to see if there is a difference in point of impact and power settings. It is unobtrusive and you hardly notice it is there when you get used to it. I was hitting a 12x12 plate at 300yds consitently over my back pack. Need to get out to the range some more when it warms up a bit when one doesn't have to lay down in the mud.
Good shooting. Jerry J

This question is for JerryJ, I have a .260 Rem. in 15" Encore and sight in dead on @ 200yds. Puts me less than 3" high @ 100yds, with 120gr Nosler BT @ 2500+ FPS. I have not shot @ 300yds, but believe that from the ballistics program on Realguns.com, it would be 9" low @ 300, still on your 12X12 plates.

Would it be easier to sight in dead on @ 200yds? I had no problem with deer last fall with this combination.

I am looking forward to spring and woodchuck hunting with this gun.

Just an observation.. Rol
