Burris six scope owner opinions

I am looking for a 2-12x40 scope and see burris has one at a resonable price. For those that don't know Leupold is also bringing one out. I have a set of the burris signature select binos and when compared to a friend's swavorskis' the difference is not what I expected for the huge price difference. If you have the burris scope please give me your opinion. It will be mounted on a 300wsm.

    I own/have owned several Burris scopes. All but 1 of my current rifles have a Burris mounted to it. They are bright, clear and tough. Very good to excellent for the money!

    I owned a .300wsm a few yrs back and went with a Leuplod at the time. But after a few months of doing some serious shooting.....I just wasn't happy.

    Sold that scope and gave Burris a shot and I'm sold....Although I may give Vortex a look on my next rifle??? Burris hasn't let me down!

    Hope that helps...........

    Thanks for the comment. I have a buddy who says much the same, and when I showed him that I can buy the 2x12 six for just over $600
    he said I would have to spend at least 3 times as much to beat it. By looking around I am starting to think he may be right. I am going to put it on a new hunting build. 2x12-40 or so is the scope I want.

    I sure would like to hear from a couple of others who have real experience
    good or bad.

    had a 2x12x50 30mm and it tracked well and was a decent scope but I was not overly impressed, optically it wasnt up to par but I normally shoot zeiss and valdada. think I would look into the zeiss conquest (much better optically) but its also a little more money. the nikons are hard to beat for the money and I would add the vortex in there as well.

    I would like to be overly impressed in a 2x12 to 2.5x15 without spending 2k. I even looked at the Bushnell 2.5x16 but when I sent them an email to ask a question about their standard ballistics set up, they didn't seem to know or care what I was talking about. They must have some sort of ballistics that they model a ballistic type holdover scope to. I walk and hunt in the bush 2 is great. I will also sit in my tree stand or in the bush where I can view long range. Maybe I will wait till June and look at the leupold VX6 2x12 that`s coming out, VX6 is going to replace the VX7. I have a Nikon 2.5x10 on my old 30-06, nice scope for the money.

    For the money I can't see anything else right now in a 2x12-40 to 44.
    The retail is over $1000, and on now for just over $600. Normaly I would wonder about that, but I know alot of people don't mind paying for the name when it comes to scopes.
