In September 2020, I had the opportunity to get my hands on the then new Burris XTR III. I knew the scope was to be made in the USA in Greeley, Colorado and I was anxious to compare it to the XTR II’s which had been and still is a long time favorite of long range competition shooters and hunters alike. When the scope arrived, it was packaged just as I was accustomed to seeing the XTR line of scopes, but this one looked and felt more robust and refined.
I committed that mortal sin this year and used an old, cheap, inconsistent scope that has been problematic in the past...After going to the range and confirming it was a cheap scope that I shouldn’t have ever been using in the first place, I went to our local sporting goods store to fix the problem. I was immediately attracted to the Burris Eliminator III.
LPVO is a an abbreviation that has been quickly gaining popularity among the AR-15 crowd, although the rest of the shooting world seems to be largely oblivious to it.

Nice looking XTR II on top of this rifle! From Ja Hymer:
After picking away at it for some time, I finally completed my 6.5 Grendel. Final touches courtesy of Brock Gardner and his team at MCM Firearms. The Battleworn FDE and black flag pattern turned out great!
