Burris Scopes

I am wanting to change to a long range scope on my Ruger M77 .300 Win, maybe a 6x18 or 6.5x20. I currently have a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10. I like the features and price of the Burris Fullfield II 6.5x20-50mm but am not sure if the eye relief is adequate for the recoil of the .300 mag. I am used to the long eye relief on the Leupold scopes, and have Leupolds on all my other rifles. Any opinions on the Burris scopes would be appreaciated.

Re: Burris Scopes

go with at least the signature series. I have several and they are superb scopes for the money. They lack a lot of internal adjustment,..so a 20MOA base will be a MUST HAVE!!
You try to get closer to the target,..and I keep trying to get further away.

Depending on your shoulder flex, I would stick with the leupold, eye relief is more on them.
