I looked at one tonight with German #4 rect and it was a great little scope.  Since my shots are all under 350 yards....what do you guys think of this scope?

I used to hunt with a Tasco 1,5-5x20. The longer shots become a bit tricky. I have since upgraded to 3,5-10x50 and never regretted it. My setting "lives" on 10. So I would consider going to a 3-9x40 or something and buy once.

You originally said 350. Less then 100 yds the 1,5 - 5 is good to go! Unfortunately I cannot comment on the brand as I am not familiar with it.

Well, I am looking for comments on quality and hunting with this little scope.  I was looking at it as an addition to my custom 6.5X55? What do you know and what do you think?????

Another questions????   Will it clear my rear sight in Tally rings?

 I have one with the posi-loc. Great scope. Very fast tracking reticle. It is more of a heavy gun scope, that is a scope meant for a heavy caliber shorter range gun. Mine is on a 9.3 X 62 CZ. It is small light and has a very good eye relief. On my 6.5X55 Sako I have a 2.5X10 Bausch and Lomb scope similiar to the Bushnell elite 4200 series. For the 6.5X55 I would want a little more glass, the 2.5X10 has plenty of field of view but will dial up to 10X for the longer shots. Something that a good 6.5X55 is more than capable of. The Burris is a good scope, very clear, positive clicks and tracks well. I have no problem in a recommendation, but for a 6.5X55 I personally think a little more range is in order (3X9, 2,5X10 etc)

F**k  Burris of the three burris scopes I have bought in the last two years two were BAD - NOT USEABLE.

Of all the scopes out there Burris has undoubtedly the absolute worst - least caring customer service on the face of the earth.

Buy Bushnell, Nikon, Leupold, Zeiss, Kahles, Swarvo..,Weaver, sightron, tasco nearly anything before you buy Burris.

Yea I would rather take a 3-9x40 tasco bear hunting with a single shot 22 than buy another Burris scope.

You have clearly not used Nikon customer service, Urimaginaryfrnd.

I have never had a problem with Burris scopes.  Now, correct me if I am wrong, but I thought you issues with Burris were because of their handgun scopes right?  If memeory serves me right, you have never had the scope in question here.

I used to have the Burris Signature Safari 1.75-5x32, and it is a very nice scope, that would serve you well.

This thread finally got me motivated to send my 6-24 Signature in for repair. The Light Collector is not working and the technician I talked to said to send it in and they will take care of it. I have been using Burris scopes since the the early 80's and have had not a single problem, until this. I consider all four of my Burris scopes to be good optically, and other than the Light Collector, very durable.

I will report back on the turn around but the help on the phone was a very pleasant experience.

 I have two Burris scopes, The signature safari and a FFII no problems with either yet. I have not dealt with customer service so can not really commint. I would not even think twice about buying another Burris scope however.  I also happen to like Leupolds as well. Another option would be the 2X7 Leupold compact I have one of these as well. A little longer range than the safari. Not sure about the reticle choice, but Leupold offers more than others. I just happen to think that the Burris for the money is the better buy.  As to clearing the sights, it is hard to say. Mounted on the CZ (basically a Mauser 98 action) the scope goes forward about 3.5 inches from the action/barrel junction. It may clear and it may not. You could use higher rings, but I prefer lower if possible.

The more I look at this scope, after seeing the dimensions, the more I like it. It looks like a very good choice for your rifle, OKH.
My two Signatures are at least as good as my V3 Leupold's, maybe better. As for the durability, my 6-24 is probably one of the reasons they dumped the Light Collector.
My 4X FF has seen a 30.06, 7mag and .375 H&H in the last several years and is as clear and repeatable as the day I got it. I have a 2-7 FF on a .223 Contender that is more of the same. My daytime predator rifle wears the 3-12 Signature with Light Collector and has been on snowmobiles, Argo's and been used pretty hard.
Good luck

333_okh,

 

Maybe I can help.  I have the same scope mounted in a set of quick release Talley rings on my FN Mauser actioned 30-06.  It appears you have a Montana action, but I can't tell if it is a long action or a short.  I will give you some measurements that might help.  Sorry, I have to use a ruler.  My calipers are out in the shop, and it's raining hard at the moment.

 

The rings are spaced exactly 5" apart, outside to outside.  From the front of the front ring to the front of the objective bell is 3 1/8".  I have to position my scopes quite a ways forward on most of my rifles.  I have only a quarter of an inch of tube left behind the rear ring.  If necessary, I could pull the scope back in the rings about 5/16".  That would leave you even less scope hanging out over the action.

 

This is just a SWAG, but as I sit here and look at your pictures, and look at my scope as it sits mounted in Talley rings, I think it might work.  I hope the measurements help, and they make some sort of sense to you.

 

Let me know if I can be of any more help.  Oh, by the way, this scope will work fine for the application you originally describe.  That's exactly how I use mine.

 

Good Luck,

Steve
