Re: What brand of scope do you prefer
My best scope is a 4-16x44 Burris Signature Select, but Burris dropped that line after Beretta bought the company.
Burris had better optical clarity that Leupold at the same price point, but Leupold is a bit lighter and generally judged a bit more rugged because of the lighter proprietary optical glass.
My rifles do not recoil all that hard, so a Burris sits on my best rifle, and it's my long range rifle.
Have not bought a scope in several years, and I would not pay for a Nightforce, Swarovski, S&B, etc.
Burris and Leupold or one of the better Bushnells, Weavers, Vortex, Sightron, Nikon, etc., are the limits of what I can pay.
Have three Burris scopes and have been pleased with them. Others comment they are nice and clear. No better optical clarity for the price point. Even a Burris Timberline will surpass Leupold VX2 clarity. You have to go to VX3 at twice the price to get that level of clarity. Burris Fullfield II should compete well against a Leupold VX2. But Leupold scopes are light and they go well with light rifles.
