Burris 6.5x20x50 TAC30 w/ Ballistic mildot reticle

Recommended Posts

    Any one check one of these out or have one ? I have one one then way & got it very cheap , even though its a refurbished unit , I still got it it very cheap .

    I have several refurbished Nikons & they work fine, so not really worried about that fact. This is replacing the Nikon , Buckmaster 6x18x40 , I have on my 16" 308AR because it has a duplex reticle & I want the MilDot for the longer ranges I will be shooting later .

You have no idea how glad I was to read that one, after the first one!...  <laughs>


You know what was coming next!  <lmao>

It was, both Midway and Optics Planet were sold out in a day. It is being replaced by the Eliminator 3 which has upgraded distance, reticle, electronics and an improved laser rangefinder. But it is $1200. This I can afford. Will do a comprehensive write up after I get a chance to wring it out.

Well I have to order 30mm rings for this beast , I could swear they said 1" tube .    Doooooo!



Nice wrapping , its in a cloth baggie. might be a micro fiber one ?



Big scope , bigger than the Nikon that's on the 16" 308



Bad photo but you get the idea of the Balistic mil dot  reticule 



Tac II adj. knobs, resettable zero

   The rings came in today , nice rings , but the instructions were not up to par , I really don't need instructions , but read them any way . Instruction read with four screws for the QR rings & these QR rings had six , so kinda not up to date with there products . Mounting went OK , after leveling scope to upper receiver , I removed the scope a couple of times to see if it would come back to level & it was off every time , not an awful lot but still off & that would effect you at longer ranges to stay zeroed.

   I think they are more of a QR to remove a damaged scope to go to your BUIS , than to remove & reinstall when change optics . Not a problem I'm not going to use them that way , they are permanent , to me .

  The Nikon I took off seemed to weigh a bit more than this Burris , could be the Burris Ultra Tactical rings on there , because they are big & heavy .

     This scope had to be the easiest I have ever sighted in or was just lucky . I fired four shots at 25 yards , just to make sure it would hit paper @ 100  made minor windage & elevation adj. & @ 100 took only three rounds to put them dead center . Then I fired five rounds on the smaller sight in square on the target & man , they were right on the money . I gave the 24"x24" cardboard backer to a guy at the range that had none & forgot to take the target off , but this scope impressed me on its clarity & I do like the Ballistic mil dot reticle on this scope also .


 Now to make a home for the Nikon , that was on there   <thumbsup>
