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 recently shoot my first 3 Gun Match called “Zombies in the Heartland” and I realized it can be a bit intimidating to get started. In this article I wanted to share a few things I learned that I wished I knew going in. I am confident this will help others feel more comfortable giving 3 Gun a shot…pun intended. :)
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.
