Like most hunters I try to get the most for my money. I am looking for a cartridge specific scope with as uncluttered view as I can get, and the new for 2014 Burris C4 Plus (not the discontinued model) seams to fit my requirements quite well, and it's reasonably priced. I plan on buying a rifle in 300wsm. As the longest range that is available for my frequent use/practice is 700 yards, that shall be my max range. This scope will be for all around hunting and NOT a dedicated long range rig. For this reason, I strongly prefer to keep my magnification range max at 12x-15x, so I am looking for a 3-9x or 4-12x, as I feel this will give me the most versital application for hunting in both short range cover as well as long range open areas. I personally have been blessed with all my shots on elk were below 200 yards and never had to let a bull go because he was out of range, but both of my hunting partners have. Sadly both had to let true trophy bulls escape into thick timber because they were less than 500 yards away and could not close the distance in time to make the shot. I don't wont that to happen to me, and I know it is simply a matter of time till it happens to me. I have shot often enough to 400 yards with my .338wm to know I can keep my shots in Coleman fuel can laid on it's side with boring regularity doing so while trying to replicate actual in the field shooting form such as shooting off any improvised rest I could think of and off my Stony Point shooting stick as well. So I don't think I am boasting on my part to say with practice I should become proficient out to 700 yards. So I am asking for all experienced based input I can get about the new Burris C4 scope. Thanks, Arthur.
