    What am I doing wrong?

    I have a remington 700 varmit in .308 with a B&C Medalsit Tactical Adjustable stock badger 15 moa base and a falcon 4.5-14x44 held on with burris tactical rings. So here's the problem when I'm looking in through the scope I only get the target or the retical in focus not both. So what is the problem is it me or the scope. :x

    OK, bad joke... Try the eye focus ring as becks suggested.

    Your eye can only focus on one thing at a time. Just like pistol sights where the front site is clear and the target is blurry. Hold one finger up and then hold another 6 inches in front of it. Can you get both in focus at the same time? You want the reticle to be in focus.
