A riflescope for FTR/F Class Competition and long range target shooters

by Ken, from United States, AR Written on September 2, 2014
This is an optic intended for longer range shooting. Don't buy this scope if you are not a long range shooter or if most of your shooting is at distances below 200 yards. Field Target air gunners, who often use high power optics, should not select this scope as it will not adjust parallax below 50 yards. In fact, mine won't adjust below 65 yards despite the adjustment dial being set at the clearly marked 50 index. Burris should abandon the numerals and just use hash marks for giving a general idea of where the parallax is focused. So my advice is not to use the dial for determining distance to target, use a laser. Image quality is every bit as good as several high end scopes of similar power range that I have in my collection. At lower power the view is astoundingly clear and sharp, at high power the view is dim but not overly so. Its power range is well thought out giving the shooter plenty of room to dial down when mirage becomes a problem. The reticle is amazingly precise, crisp and clearly focused - being on the First Focal Plane, the shooter can, at any range, measure the distance the impact is from POA and dial in the correction using 1/8 MOA increments. I have no problem moving impact precisely to the center of the x-ring. The lower stadia are a great aid to making holdovers and wind calls at long range. Even at the lowest power setting, the reticle can still be read if the background is light in contrast and the shooter has good eyesight. The illuminated dots on the ...

save for a better optic

by Blackcloud, from United States, MN Written on August 30, 2014
Price was good, even though it was made in the phillipines.The illuminated reticle is totally useless as it only barely illuminates on level 9-11, even though it has 11 levels, and only with the objective cap closed and in a dark room can you see them at all. The reticle also is almost useless at 8 power as it is so small it it very hard to see, and at higher power the reticle becomes useless as you lose the MOA graduations you need for elevation compensation because the reticle was not positioned in the upper second quadrant of the scope to make use of the reticle design at higher power which the scope was intended. The elevation and windage turrets turn so hard that leather faced gloves, or a pair of channelocks should have come with the scope to aid in turning them, and thats at room temperature. I'm sure in colder weather it will be even harder. At the range with my shooting buddies we compared the optics with thier scopes, Nightforce, leupold, and Valdada, and the Burris paled in comparison, I guess thats why it cost 1/2 as much as thiers.As far as durability goes, the jury is still out on that as I have not used it enough to honestly say....
Pros:
  • Price
Cons:
  • everything else
Best Used for:
  • 600 to 1000 yard target shooting
Would recommend: No

Burris 8x40 f class reticle

by Wheel, from United States, IN Written on August 21, 2014
Got 40 round thru this scope, zeroed at 210 yds in 6 shots with no bore slighter just looking down the bore with the bolt out.. Hold over at 350 yds was 3 moa shot sub 2 inch 5 shot group. Next 3 were at 550yds guessed at 7 moa hold over ended up being nine moa hold over. Shot the next 5 at under 4 inches at 550yd.. Moved to 750 yds guessed at 17 moa hold over right on target hit 12 inch steel first shot . Shot awhile ended up putting the last 10 in an sub 8 inch group at 750 yds. My first day ever shooting over 250 yds.

Glass quality I would say was vary good shot thru over cast light drizzle to full blown sun and mirage. Dialed down to 30 power and it was fine. Magnification and clarity was very good. Heard guys talk about the mushy feel on burris turrets, complete nonsense they were tight and actually a little stiff for me. Set my zero stop since and it has always returned to zero perfectly.. Run the box test at 300 yds perfect. Reticle extension seem to be right on.

I shopped and reviewed scopes for the last 3 months. It was between this scope and a nightforce Nxs at a full 1000.00 more. I was banging steel at 750 yds, totally impressed. Yeah maybe in really lowlight a nightforce might be better but for those of us that work for a living and on a budget I would say this is the way go, and you have money left over for a super nice joypad rest and a few hundreds rounds od 168 gr federal gold match that I would also highly recommend. Burris also has an unbelieva...
