Seen some good reviews online, seems like a good scope for the price and good warranty.  Also wondering if there is anything just as good or better around the same price?  Also how would the ballistic plex reticle be for deer hunting in low light conditions? Gun is a .270 Savage and may consider one for my H&R 20 ga. slug gun.

It is a very nice little scope for the money.  If you are looking for low light performance, get the 3P#4 reticle instead of Ballistic Plex.

I have been interested by these too from time to time as I view the 3-9 versions very favorably. I have never been clear to me however as there is info on the web that offers contradicting impressions. Are these primarily 1/2" click adjustable, and are they mainly set up for a shotgun /ML scope? Some sights indicate these are indeed shotgun /ML scopes with a shorter parralax setting and others do not. Maybe there are two versions but the Burris website doesn't indicate this is so.

I just ordered a FF II E1 2-7x35 for my AR 15. I will let you know how I like it. The rifle currently has a vortex diamond back 3-9 on it. I like the vortex but I wanted the lower 2 power and a little more eye relief. I plan to put the vortex on one of my deer rifles. I will say that my brother has the FF II in 3-9 and we just compared it to my vortex db while at are farm thus past weekend and it has superior optics and eye relief. Both are great for the money. Why not 3-9 for a 270 ????

agree with Ilya
great little scope with the #4 reticle
 
I have compared it directly in low light into darkness against a Viper 2-7 C3 (which gets great reviews)
The glass may be ever, ever so slightly better on the Viper but the #4 reticle on the Burris stands out better in very low light.

I may go with the 3-9 x 40, haven't seen it with the #4 reticle and can't find anyone with the #4 reticle 2-7 x 35 in stock.

I have several Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40's.  They are good scopes.
 
When I looked at their 2x7, there didn't seem to be enough gain in the field of view to make it worthwhile as a choice over the 3-9x40.   That doesn't mean that the 2-7 isn't a good scope, of course.  I had pretty much the same reaction to Leupold scopes of comparable powers.
 
When I want a wider field of view, my solution has been (and is) to use a 1.5-5.
 
If you are scoping a .270, I'd probably go with the 3-9.  If you will be using the .270 for up-close woods hunting, you might like to get detachable mounts and an additional 1.5-5 scope.  The 1.5-5 would certainly work for your slug gun.
 
The ballistic plex can be quite helpful for long-range shooting (if you have carefully checked actual point of impact at various distances).  However, you can also zero the center crosshairs at 200 yards, ignore the lower plex marks  and use it just like any other scope.

I have never used a 2-7 FFII, but I currently have a 3-9x40 FFII and a 4.5-14x42. I've had several other 3-9's, most of which I wish I still had. They have great glass, seem durable, and just all around a great scope. Having used many scopes in the $300 and under price range, I don't think you can beat them until you step up to a Zeiss Conquest, and even then it's not a huge difference.
