I have narrowed my search down to basically two scopes for my Remington hunting rifle.  I would like a good decent scope for a 30.06 but I am not prepared to sell off the house for it.  What I am looking at is either the Pentax Whitetails or the Burris FullField II.  From what I understand Pentax scopes are made by Burris.  So is there really that big of difference between the two?

 

I have always had great luck with Pentax stuff in the past so I am leaning that way, but if the Burris is equal or better than the Pentax I could save some cash $$.

 

Any suggestions between the two is very much appreciatated.

 

Thanks

They are really close.  I do believe that they use differet coatings and possibly different glass (not sure about the glass).  They are both very good.

hmm... im not really sure which is better, i only have experience with burris, but i would say they're jsut about exact. i say either flip a coin, or buy the cheapest.

Well the Burris is the cheaper of the two plus you get a spotting scope. BUT I like to be different so I think I will go with the Pentax.  Since there is not alot of information on the Pentax I'll be sure to give a little honest info out there when it arrives.
