RT-6 Riflescope 1-6x24mm is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from RT-6 Combo 200475 Bought this scope a couple of weeks ago, got it to the range last week-end, zeroed to 100 yards in about 12 shots. On an AR-15 platform, removed it ran a few shots with the MBUS, re-attached scope and ran it through 150 rounds, groups of 1 inch at 100 yards constantly. Nice scope, well built, solid feel, easy adjustments, have not zeroed the Fastfire 3 yet, left my supplied small screwdriver at home ! Overall Burris has some of the best optics out, for a lot less, with high end look ,feel, and ease of operation, and ACCURACY. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear, Bright, and Versatile Optic Purchased the rt-6 package with the Fastfire red dot and cantilever mount. Sighted them both in but found on 1x the illuminated circle reticle in the Rt6 works as well for me as the fasttfire for close range quick target acquisition. I sold the Fastfire. I love the versatility of 1-6x. Recently was shooting gallon jugs at 250 yard and found rthe precision of the bullet drop was very accurate in my AR15 using 62 grain ammo. Unlike most red dots, the scope will function perfectly without a battery. Great value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope Put this on an AR for 3 gun and this scope has a huge field of view. Reticle is simple and quick to pick up. Can pick up reticle during the day without illumination. BDC is right on at 400 yds with 55 gr. 223. Included throw lever is a plus. We'll see how it holds up but right now it's awesome. Good job Burris.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won’t be disappointed! I purchased this scope about 2 months ago . After months of searching and looking at different brands I settled on the RT-6 . 3 reasons - 1. Price point at a little over 300 you will not be disappointed, compared to hd gen , or luepold , trijicon etc it’s difficult to justify 1000 plus . 2. Eye relief is much much better than the vortex strike eagle especially at 1x it also has a built in Throw lever and the reticle is not as bulky as the strike eagle or primary arms . My only complaint is Burris added a small # 4 in the rt lower quadrant of the reticle . Why ? I don’t have a reason but you can see it while shooting after a few shots it did not bother me and longer . 3 Lastly with this scope you can actually see the illumination during the day most scopes I’ve seen in person it was difficult to see the illumination not here Thanks Burris ! Also this is shorter and lighter than Vortex and PA . Win win . Overall I would give it 4.5 due to the #4 you can see in the reticle but 4.5 wasn’t an option . If your looking at a 1-6 for under 400 bucks look no further much better than any brand at this price point .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with scope I have had it a few months and used it in three IPSC rifle competitions. I love the clarity, the reticle and just about everything else. Would prefer meter BDC reticle rather than yards since I use the metric system, but not a big problem. Needed to find the zero distance to match the BDC in metric. The ballistic service website helped a lot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quit working after a week? I bought the scope and the design is nice and what I expected. What I didn't expect was the lighted reticle to stop working after only a week. Disappointed to say the least. Currently off being repaired so I will see how it goes. I just got it sighted in and now I have to start over. Ugh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope Love this scope, took 10 shot to zero it in. Very clear lens has a shut off between illuminations settings which is great . Came with Fast fire III red dot on top of scope. Have this on my ar-15 very happy with it recommend it to everyone

Is this scope considered "duty" quality? And how does the durability compare to the MTAC?

Asked by: SDB30
Hello, The RT-6 is considered more of a Competition scope.

I understand that the RT-6 was designed for 5.56, but I would like to use it on 308 if possible.  Would the BDC reticle still work on a 308?  Are there instructions that would show how to use that reticle for 308?  Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Bfscob
It will likely not match up too closely. But what I recommend is to run it in our Ballistic Tools app to see where it shakes out. https://ballistics.burrisoptics.com/reticle-analysis

Will the RT-6 continue to be produced? It’s unavailable on Amazon. I’d like it to be my next optic, and I don’t think I’m alone. 

Asked by: ES31
RT-6 scopes are currently shipping. The backorder is being worked through slowly but surely. You should be seeing them at your dealers shortly.

I bought an RT-6. What butler creek caps fit this scope?

Asked by: 72Christopher
The 02a seems to fit nice and snug. The other end however requires a larger diameter than the 16 offers

Etched reticle? In the event that the battery dies/illum fails, will the reticle still be visible in black? Thanks!

Asked by: ES31
That is correct.

I was hoping to find out when the Burris RT6 combo with mount and Fasrfire III stock will be replenished and available for purchase . I have had it backordered from Optics Planets for over a 2 months.

Asked by: Ready to try
RT-6 scopes are currently shipping, and the numbers will be increasing as we reach summer.
