I have a Burris Safari presently but I would like a brighter scope. Any advice? The older Burris did me good service but it wasn't bright enough. I'm not convinced the new model is what I want.

Well, Leupold makes VX-III scopes in similar sizes to Burris, and their 1.5-5x20mm with a German #4 reticle is a pretty standard scope for safari type high recoil rifles. Burris optics are nothing to sneeze at though, the Leupold might be brighter but you'll need a light meter to tell the difference.

I love that tapered post. All I have to do is worry about where the tip is and I've got him. I always used a duplex until I accidently had to use the Burris and I just love it.The German #4 is not quite so handy to me but I may have to resign myself to it.

You are right about the new Burris being brighter than the old. I haven't tried a new Leupold yet.

How old is your Burris?

 

The new Signature Select model 1.75-5x32 Safari is not out yet but Burris claims major improvements.  Here is some of what Burris says.

 

Signature Select™ Riflescopes
After long, hard consideration and a lot of work, we’ve upgraded our famous Signature Series to present the new Signature Select lineup.

Many of the enhancements are ergonomic for increased versatility and easier operation. For example, we moved the adjustment turret back to a more central location on many models to give you more flexibility in mounting options. Deep relief grooves on the power ring and parallax adjust ring provide a firm, no-nonsense grip and we integrated a shooter-viewable, easy-to-grip power ring with the eyepiece.

 

Every surface of every premium quality lens is fully Hi-Lume multi-coated. The Signature Select internal lenses are some 65% larger in surface area than a great many other 1" scopes on the market, and in fact significantly larger than most scopes with 30mm outer tubes. A generous 4.5" of eye relief. The finger-adjustable, shooter- viewable adjustment dials are all resettable.

These all new high performing beauties will turn more than a few heads in camp this year.

19-45 foot field of view at 100 yards

3.8'-4.5" eye relief
