    I have my xp on the way now. Was wondering what optics most are using? A lot of the photos look like rifle scopes on the center grip xp's. I have burris LER on my four encore's just wondering what other options were out there. thanks

    What are you killing? Steel up to 200 meters, pistol scope.

    Ghogs at 500 yards, rifle scope.

    Pick your distance and accuracy reqs?

    A lot of us have rifle scopes on everything, but that just me.

    How does that work with eye relief. When on high the Burris seems awful close

    put my first rifle scope on a savage striker today. still a little unnerving been that close to the optics but I think its going to work. now to try it in a hunting situation.
    Thanks ernie, and all the lrh members that post some good information

    I went thru the same thing a few years ago. Once you get use to it. The pistol scopes are a pain to use now.

    I have a xp in 7mm br and a Burris 2x7 handgun scope rides on top. Once you are use to the long eye relief glass it's easy use. I tried a mid relief on a 223 contender with little success.
