Note
Read the Dead-Hold BDC Reticle manual for details on using the reticle for bullet drop compensation and wind drift compensation and ranging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice 2-8 , no need for a 3-9 just received this scope , very clear images at all power levels . The side focus give you a close depth reading which helps in bullet drop . Heavy , yes it is but not to bad.

I have a diamondback HP 2-8x32 BDC riflescope. l would d like to know the best method for centering the reticles within the scope tube. Want to align the barrel and scope bore centers of axis during the mounting process. Scope has been previously used.

Asked by: Nomad
In order to center the reticle just take the scope and put it up to a mirror and look through it as you normally would. You will see two sets of crosshairs. Adjust your turrets until you line them up and only see one set. This will optically center your reticle. You can then bore sight it once it's mounted on your gun and should be good to go from there!
