I've owned a few Burris scopes. Two 3-9x40 bplex reticle, & a 4.5-14x42 A.O. with a Bplex. They are the absolute toughest most durable scopes I've ever beat the heck out of
I love em. In fact I still have the 4.5-14 on my 270 wsm, & even after being rolled over by a mule....TWICE! & a few stumbles & rough landings over the years, plus airline rides (& handeling) it still holds 0, & tracks perfectly.
I'm from Oregon, so naturally I'm a Leupold freak! But if $ is tight, & I can't afford my Leupold, then Burris gets my money everytime.
I've owned a few Nikons, in the Buckmaster, 3-9,standard duplex & 4-14 Bdc. Then the Prostaff model, with duplex Reticle wich still sits on my custom 10/22.
Bdc circles drove me nutts, & sold it immediately after my first range session.
Bang for your buck scopes put the Burris FF-II & Nikon Buckmaster in a simmilar category, but the Burris is way more rugged, & I personally prefer the Bplex reticle.
The new E-1 reticle reminds me of my Leupold VX-III's Varmint hunter duplex, but Burris with 10 mph windage only. I'll be in the market for one of those for my -06 in the next year or two.
