 I have been buying a few rifle scopes the last couple of weeks since I have more guns than glass to go on top of them which sucks. I am now to my last buy a tactical style scope for one of my long range rifle and started looking at the burris XTR 3x12 and 6.5x24 models. These look great,good reviews around the net, priced right in my range,but then I notice how long the are listed to be? Is the 6.5x20 model really nearly 17" long? That is pretty darn bigas my buddy has a burris 8-32 scope and it's 17" which is huge on a rifle.

by nature  "tactical" style shooting is platform shooting which calls for heavy duty equipment. almost all scopes in this class are heavier, longer, and bigger. a decision you'll have to make over their trimmer hunting equals.

 I am figureing this out. It seems most of the higer end tactical scopes are 20-35oz's and overr 15' in length. I am going to have to see one of these in person before i deside to order one. I guess I can offer to take the old lady out to eat this weekend and do the 60 min drive to the big city gun store they have about everything in stock there compared to my small local gun shop.
