I am wanting to change to a long range scope on my Ruger M77 .300 Win, maybe a 6x18 or 6.5x20. I currently have a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10. I like the features and price of the Burris Fullfield II 6.5x20-50mm but am not sure if the eye relief is adequate for the recoil of the .300 mag. I am used to the long eye relief on the Leupold scopes, and have Leupolds on all my other rifles. Any opinions on the Burris scopes would be appreaciated.

go with at least the signature series. I have several and they are superb scopes for the money. They lack a lot of internal adjustment,..so a 20MOA base will be a MUST HAVE!!

Depending on your shoulder flex, I would stick with the leupold, eye relief is more on them.

As far as burris scopes, I like all of mine. Don't go below the signature series though. I just ordered another 8-32 black diamond.

FWIW

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
