Not really better than expected because its not my first. i have eleven rifles with leupold vx 2 and3's and 2 redfield (vintage) plus three zeiss. i have only had the burris to the range one time.my eyes are old but the scope is bright and clear. zeroing the rifle was made very easy with accurate adjustments and printed several moa groups at 100 yards.no big deal but the rifle is a fairly light 375 ruger . i will see what it does in the future as i like to shoot this rifle alot.
The edges of the scope are not clear i called Burris hey said it is not have he right eye relief well i adjusted it to were i can see the scope when i pull the rifle up . i have scopes half the price that i like better . Burris tech support they were very little help the tech said it was my fault and the scope was fine . i have been using scope be fore he was born no more for me
This is an excellent scope, very clear and easy to look through without a lot of re-positioning like some high end scopes. I have one of these on a 270, and one on a 308. I zeroed dead on at 100 yds, 200 yds is on at the line just below the center of the cross hairs, and 300 yds is on at the next hash mark. Seeing 300 yds in good detail is very easy. When shooting, I consistently saw the bullet trace when shooting 300 yds. Only reason I didn't shoot farther is because the range ended at 300 yds. Definitely on par with a Leupold, but cheaper
