It doesn’t matter whether you need a pair of binoculars or a rifle scope for that budget build; there is a Burris Droptine for the project. My first introduction to the Droptine line was about 3 months ago. I wanted to add some life to an old inherited .22 long rifle
It all begins and ends with confidence. I set out for Oklahoma to spend some range time with D.R. Long Range Concepts with a factory rifle and factory loads topped with what at the time I may have considered a “factory scope.”
When I heard the new name for this latest Burris release, I thought to myself “calling something ‘Pro’ is a bold claim.” After the chance to run this scope through the most rigorous of matches, I can sincerely say I believe it hits the mark.
So what next? Innovation is at the core of Burris Optics, and with the XTR line safely secure as a worthy choice for extreme shooting enthusiasts, the only logical step was to keep pushing the envelope!
After taking the gun scope and rings to my local gun shop to mount the scope I couldn’t help but be excited again to shoot this old gun. It’s amazing how a simple thing like upgrading your old gun with a new scope can bring back old memories.
Simple is a life the outdoorsman tends to live and simple is sometimes an idea that is sometimes forgotten in a world that is so hyped up with the next best thing. If you're looking for simple, Burris’s Fullfield IV might just be what you're looking for...
As I surf the sea of social media, a surprising amount of interest in handgun hunting flashes on the radar screen. For me, this activity is most welcome. After all, we’re living in a time where concealed carry, high-capacity sub-compact 9mm, ARs, black rifles, and related tactical hardware is taking front stage. Hunting handguns and equipment is similar to the Maytag repairman, resting peacefully in the back corner.
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.
