Reply To: Burris XTR-II 8-40×50 FFP?
I don’t have any experience with either one of these, but definitely be cognizant of the parallax distances. Last year I bought a Vortex FFP scope and it has a 50 yard parallax. I didn’t pay much attention to this at the time, but have since missed the opportunity to take several shots at live targets that were closer than 50 yards because I couldn’t see them clearly in my scope. Since then I’ve removed the Vortex, put it in the closet and bought a BSA FFP scope that can focus at much closer distances. Don’t get me wrong, the Vortex is a great scope and their customer service is top notch, but it was just not the right choice for my desired application due to the parallax distances.
I see the Burris has a parallax of 50 yards to infinity like my Vortex and the Sightron is 13 yards to infinity.
Just my 2 cents…
