Others said that they were thinking about pulling the trigger,on same.




Bigger than I'd thunked,but don't change anything in my book.



I like rheostats with an "OFF" betwixt every setting. CR2032 powered and they included (2).



It's daylight bright. #6 of 10 here,on 1.5x.



Not suplized.



Ele and windage are 1/2 MOA graduated,with 96 MOA from top to bottom of ele.



Ain't gonna ask much of it,other than to fucking hold zero,as an Otter Knocker upon a Franklin Whizzum. It's SFP,which don't hurt the particular application,as a 200yd Krunchenticker Whizzum zero,is purty fucking forgiving.

Time will tell......................

Looks like a decent package for that use; unless it flat shits the bed, I'd expect it will suffice.

Main issue & failures with most lower end scopes is less than durable mechanicals so unless you are dialing up & down all the time, it will likely be OK. Does it have the Vortex warranty?

Be sure to post some follow up after you beat it up a little. :D

Nowadays Burris to their credit,do have subtension values for their shit reticles. None of it is intuitive and it's Hilarious...but at least it's there. I get more than a touch dubious,when subtension values are in an increment,the erector cannot deliver.(grin)



This elder offering,don't share the readiness of a subtension schematic,but it don't take long to shoot/correlate same.

The esoteric values lauded Today,are always good for a fucking laugh.

30MOA per ele/windage turret revolution.

In fairness,S&B does shit equally as fucking stupid and omit parallax adjustment and a good reticle both,on their "Tactical" 6x and 10x's.

How do SWFA get soooooooooooooo much fucking right?!?.......................(grin)

Nice. Was looking at that one and have been tempted. I tried a Burris 2-10 Veracity this year. It puked and they deemed it not fixable. Replacement is on it’s way. See how the second one does.

Yeah, looks good............a little far back for my taste, covering the CH a tad heavy though.

I'm waiting for a delivery today too; a new NF (although not your favorite ;)), a new JP bolt & several pairs of electronic ear protector for the family member that don't already have 'em.

Still need a new mount & a new upper, have to prolly wait for X-mas sale now.

I have ZERO fucking faith in Burris and will be AMAZED,if it makes the grade...trigger time will tell. Winter Cast and Blasts are a great way to wring out wares. Have a GFI Kenai enroute for a beloved 22/45 LITE and it'll back the pending burris puke.(grin)

I've never crawled Krunchenticker stocks and never will,if only because I don't like to sip gas.................

I would love for burris to actually “work”.
Yep. Every scope I buy can't be a NF, S&B or similar. SS's are the next best alternatives, all things considered.

Burris has some attractive packages...................if they would hold together.

Little Big Gun is a NASTY fucking bitch and dat's a GOOD thang.



Sucker hole for weather,due the current crop of crisp/clear high pressure.



The 3-15's cat tail was too much of a good thang,for me...so I pert near whittled it all away.




It's strictly for squirting 88's....................

It stresses me out knowing that when I eyeball the engraving it’ll be forever public...

But to put a positive spin on things, the bolt handle reminds me of the fire/hardened spears in Lord of the Flies.... ha!

I’m looking for a large stone somewhere in the neighhborhood of 4”x12” or so. Want it to sharpen meat grinder blades and cleaning up the grinder plates. Only thing I’ve found is in China so far....

I blew my wad on 4 XTR2s when they were half price. Not a bad scope but I wouldn’t pay full price for one when my 5-20 Super Chicken is as nice as it is. I put a whopping 16 rounds through the Burris and APO 6.5CM. Punched my ticket at 7am on the opener.

XTR2s have a good reputation for durability and that’s why I bought them. If they go tits up Burris has a warranty like Vortex. We all know about the Vortex warranty because you’ll need it. I’m betting I won’t with the Burris. Burris’s cheaper scopes aren’t too bad for holding zero, I have 2 3-9 Tac 30s on a 223 AR and 308 AR and they’ve done right by me for $200 each.

I know there were/are alotta XTR2 issues,but supposedly the '3's are hanging tough.

Still pretty funny,that despite the 34mm tubes and 10 oz weight "advantage",they still can't muster 6x MQ erector travel..................

Whittakers latched onto a special run and blew 'em out.

Melissa can get you one from her Distributor and that's how a few found their way to town. RPM is right,as is the magbox,which is never a bad thing.

I think the Speedmire Punch,is going to be A Thang..................

22” stainless Browning XBolt. 22-250. By the time I got there that was the only thing even halfway appealing. Kids should have a good time with it.

Nope.
