Droptine™ Riflescope 4.5-14x42mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holdover Values are great! The holdover lines with the exact values for 2 different cartridges that I asked about were provided within 24 hrs by the Customer Service Tech Rep via email.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid platform I really like the G2B Mil-Dot, using this on a ,22 cal PCP air rifle and it makes short work in calculating drop and windage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from moa turrets Bought in September and have had nothing but trouble. Is the first burris rifle scope I have owned went to the Web site burris offers and tried to trouble shoot the problems I was having with not being able to get it sighted in has no up and down moa. The only way to move the crosshairs is with the windage moa turret. I have changed rings and mounts nothing has solved the problem. Done to last option going to send to burris on Monday hopefully they can solve the issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Burris Droptine 4.5 x 14 x 42 Nice Scope I have had this scope about 3 months now, and this scope is very easy to use and the range adjustments are super easy. I have taken deer so far with it at 130 yards and at 60 feet. Both shots were dead on, despite the significant magnification and range adjustments needed on the scope between the 100 yard setting and the <50 yard setting. I definitely recommend taking the time to site in at 100 yards and then shoot at 50 yards and 200 yards to have an accurate understanding of your particular projectile's trajectory. Don't just rely on the elevation hash marks in the scope. The light collection and clarity even in low light conditions is excellent, and the extra 5x magnification eliminates the need for a spotting scope at the range. My only complaint with this optic is the external lens will fog up repeatedly when the cold dawn air warms to morning light. So keep a lens cloth handy. I would definitely buy another Burris Droptine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope Went to the range today to site in my new Burris scope. Mounted this baby on an AR15 and sited in at 100 yards then began shooting targets at 200 yards. Scope performed so well that this old man actually hit the bulls eye at that distance. Great product and great warranty. It's nice to find American company's that really stand behind their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris Drop Tine 41/2x14x42 Bought the Burris Droptine 41/2x14x42. I own another Burris scope and has been right on for years. Didn't know how good Droptine would be and was not disappointed. Very clear and very easy to adjust. Burris websight has sight in info and used their info and ballistic plex worked as it should. Best buy for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scope I bought this a few months ago and liked it at first then it the turrets to adjust it up and down would not turn so I sent it in to get fixed I think it will be a good scope if it does not break again

Will this scope stand up to my 300 Winchester Magnum?

Asked by: ufd65100
We test all of our optics with over 1000 Gs of force which simulates recoil beyond that of a .50 BMG. You shouldn't have any issues with the scope withstanding the recoil of your firearm.

I bought two of these great scopes, and have a quick question. The instructions mention there is a hole to push to zero the adjustment knobs to zero, I cannot find these, is this not avaliable on this scope? Thanks

Asked by: James Michael
Get a strong light. The hole is tiny, and is better described as a notch in the lower edge of the band with the numbers. The notch should be at the bottom of the number 6. You will be turning against a bit of friction, so hold the knob firmly to keep it from turning. You want to turn the numbered band, not the adjustment knob. I used an awl that came with set of small screwdrivers I bought years ago.

Good afternoon, if I buy the G2B-MIL P/N 200078, will the click values be in .10 Mil or still in 1/4" MOA? I'm buying two Burris scopes now and another two within the next 6-months. I have decided on the G2B Mil-Dot reticle for all four rifles.

Asked by: Allen
It will be 1/4 MOA. The XTR II scopes use a G2B reticle, and those would be .10 milrad clicks
