Burris RT-6 Riflescope 1-6x24mm is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31.
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 Super Clear Scope! I’ve owned a Fullfield 4.5-14 and an MTAC 1-4 and this RT6 is substantially clearer to me than either of those. I run this on my MK18 length URGI build and it makes consistent hits super easy. Even though it’s a shorter barrel and most would recommend a red dot, I have an astigmatism so a true one power etched reticle works much better for me. I love this scope especially for the price!

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! Great combo! I bought this combo about two weeks ago. I have ran about 350 rounds through my AR with it and zeroed the scope very easily. The glass is super clear and reticle is very crisp. The reticle is bright enough to use during the day (could be brighter). Overall construction is great. The fastfire 3 on top is a nice touch. I zeroed the main scope at 100yds and the red dot at 25yds. For the money, this is a great option for someone who wants a nice LPVO with a mount… the red dot is a bonus that you can remove and mount on another gun if you want to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very practical optic I haven’t owned this optic long enough for an in depth review, but I can say that it’s Illumination settings are very practical along with the reticle. You’d have a very hard time finding a better value

Hello, Brochure indicates RT-6 is calibrated for .223. Can it be calibrated for .308? I am color blind & have difficulty seeing red. Is there green option for illumination of both RT-6 & Fastfire 3? Thanks for your time.

Asked by: shefely
They are very popular with a .308. There isn't a way to calibrate them for it but they can used on a .308. There unfortunately isn't an option for green at this time. I'm happy to pass this on to our product development team.

I just bought the RT-6 combo, It is already mounted to the base.are the ring mounts pre-torqued to the base at 20 inch pounds w/ loctite or do I need to still do this? The scope is centered and level on gun.

Asked by: Scott pof 65
You should be ready to shoot out of the box. You don't need loctite.
