I've liked Burris scopes for years but the recent change in the product line has left me out. I have plenty of the ones they make that suit me, but the ones I'd hoped to add have gone by the way. So I got a new VXR 4x12x40 Ballistic Firedot, set in a BOBRO mount and locked on a Bushy ORC in 308. The electronics are the best I've got, everything looks and works the way it should and it seems very clear and crisp. The big surprise was after leveling and tightening the rings it shot almost to POA. A buddy and I shot up a soda can on the pond bank at about 220 yards and I have yet to remove the caps from the scope. I wish the wind would stop, really want to get serious about setting it but not today.

I have the 3-9x VX-R and so far, I like it. Got mine on a Rem 700 truck gun in .223 Remington.

Due to a hiccup, I had a duplex Firedot that wasn't mine. I wanted to keep it also but when I realized there was a significant price difference it got shipped back today. Didn't want anyone to think I was scamming them for the more expensive scope. Oh well, need the money for the Z3 I'm lusting after.
