This scope is wonderful. As indicated in other reviews, you sigh it in at 100 or 200 yards, then push a couple of buttons to program it to your caliber (very easy and you get the info from the included table). This scope is heavy (about a pound in weight if not slightly heavier), with big calibers the scope tends to work itself loose (the gun moves, the scope is too heavy to move....the screws on the base gets loose), I had this happen to me a few times, so locktite everything (trust me on this one as it could wreck the threads on your gun). A few suggestions to make things perfect for you with this scope, 1. use a one piece base instead of two piece set. In this case for the scope to move it has to move the whole base and loosen 4 screws instead of two. 2. when mounting the scope push down on it and then push slightly to the front, this makes the scope sit in the right place and tend not to move. I know this review might give the impression that this is a bad scope to buy, it really isn't. I would buy this scope again if I have to. It is a great scope but because it is heavy it has certain issues that can be easily resolved as I mentioned earlier. I shot a very nice buck with it on my 300 Win Mag this fall and I really love the scope. It takes the guess work. It range things for you then calculate the hold over for you. A red dot will illuminate based on you caliber and distance that the scope ranged. You put this dot on where you want to hit the animal and bang.

This scope rocks!!! I was skeptical until I reviewed the scope at Elk Camp in Las Vegas with the burris sales rep, I was very impressed with how easy to set up was. When I say easy..... I mean easy there is no computer needed all you do is look up the caliber and manufacture of the bullet on the pre-set charts( can be found on burris.com) enter -the two digit number and you're done that's all. Taking it to the range and sight in at 100 yards before programming your code BOOM!! you're dead on 500 yards no problem 100% confidence. The only downside is the scope is heavy and adds significant amount of weight to the your rifle. make sure you mount the activation switch in a comfortable location. I zip tied mine to my rifle because the cloth strap was Hanging up on brush.

How are you going to calibrate it though! This scope was designed mainly for rifles and it comes with a table of 600 different types (and calibers and brands) of ammunition, where you select the ammo you use and enter the number given to you in the table. This number is basically the drop of your ammunition type at 500 yards. Once the scope ranges your target it calculated the drop of your ammo at that range. No arrows for cross bows are listed. Plus, this scope is as expensive (if not more expensive) than any cross bow out there. I would definitely NOT put this scope on a cross bow.
This scope goes on a picatiny rail type of bases or weaver bases. It comes with screws that have a clamp at each end. This screw (more of a bar actually that is square/cubical) fits in the groves of the picatiny rails, or the weaver base, then you tighten the clamps around the scope and the base. Sorry, I do not know the technical terms, but I hope my description gives you an idea
It depends on the target the laser rangefinder is factory and field tested at 800 yards on reflective targets, and 550 yards on non-reflective targets Hope this helps you make a decision, it is a great scope
