RT-25 5-25x56mm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing glass! I own a handful of Burris scopes. This one is one of my favorites. I put this on my .30-06 for my long range Western Elk hunt but still used it back home in Pennsylvania for whitetails. Crisp, clean, amazing low light and no distortion. A++ Burris. Good job with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I unboxed my RT-25 5.5-30x56 and today. I had it mounted and was shooting in 20 minutes. Sighting in and setting the zero stop were easy. Glass is great also. Cant wait until my next competition

RT-15 Just in from Midway, windage and elevation knobs seem insanely tight right out of the box. Almost afraid that I will break something trying to turn them. Is there a process or adjustment that needs made prior to use?

Asked by: Rusty336
In the user guide, there are instructions on how to utilize the turret system. It is likely your set screws need to be loosened.

I am putting the Burris RT-25 5-25x56mm FFP on my Browning X-Bolt 308, just wondering which mount and base you recommend for this package.

Asked by: alan33
For X-Bolt I would recommend a picatinny base from www.egwguns.com. We unfortunately do not have that will fit the XBolt. That being said, I would recommend a set of XTR Signature Rings. https://www.burrisoptics.com/mounting-systems/rings/xtr-signature-rings

Is this available with any “simpler” hunting type reticals?

Asked by: Buckslayer
As for the RT, they are not available in simpler hunting reticles. For something like that with similar turrets, we'd recommend the Signature HD scopes. There are various magnifications, and simpler reticles available. https://www.burrisoptics.com/scopes/signature-hd-riflescopes
