Other than the posibility of sales numbers does anyone have any information as to why Burris has quit producing the six-x. Others seem to be embracing the challenges of producing scopes with 6 times or better zoom. I was surprised at this and it has had me wondering. I have one and quite like it. The 2-12 gives me options for close cover and open spaces. For the price I thought it was good value.

I hope it was due to sales and not issues.  I have mine on a 338 Federal Sako it is non illuminated with the #4 Reticle.  It has been great the couple of times at the range and I hunted with it at least three weekends.  I have a Kahles 2-7x36 on the way and an empty Sako 75 in 300 WSM so they might get shuffled around.  It all depends on where I want the Leica then work from there.
 
Right now I am seriously considering the best place to put the various....never mind I could go on and on about this thinking out loud.
 
We'll see what the group has to say.

Any time Burris finds that they are producing a scope that works they quit making it. 
My 1x Burris Scout scope is the only surviving Burris in my safe, wish they still made it.

Considering that others seem to be jumping into the 6x zoom range, it appears that you may be right Urimaginary. It doesn't make any sense but you may be right. I was realy looking for an answer because I was thinking about buying another one. I contacted Burris, but of course they were no help.
