Signature HD 2-10x40mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from fine hunting scope Bought this scope for my savage stealth I use for plains hunting. Sighted it in at 100 and first two shots were at 600 yards, both in the boiler room using the reticle. I used my favorite loads for 6.5 eldx 42 g 4350 seated to 2.825 federal primers. thought I might have to tune the load but got lucky I guess. I use s 20 moa rail and I have 48 moa of adjustment which allows me to shoot to 1250 yards. So you can dial for slow shots and quick reticle shots to 700 yards. I believe the yardage numbers need to be bolder. pretty fine scope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks For The Signature HD 3-15x44mm I have never seen the need for an adjustable parallax scope since all of my scopes were intended for hunting, until now. I built a rifle for range use only and decided this was the time to something that worked for all ranges. I shopped for weeks until I came across the Signature HD 3-15x44mm and that was it. The power and size are perfect for my application, the clarity is clear as a bell, and the reticle is not too busy. So far I have only broke in the new barrel with it, so I look forward to giving it a stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great But Somle Hunting Scope I own several quality scopes including the Burris Veracity. The Signature HD is the best hunting scope I own, especially for the money. The glass is as clear as any Zeus I own and tracks better than the Veractity. The simplicity of the reticle makes it easy for hunters that want to reach out a little further than they have before without having to worry about all the technical knowledge that is advertised today. Total simple especially when buck fever sets in. The lockable turrets are awesome and the scopes tracking is so positive I just dial up for longer shots. Light transmission is the same as my VX 5 and Veracity. This is the ultimate whitetail scope!! It has been used in the field and has stood up to the elements so far. Burris is a reputable company and I can say they back their warranty and will answer the phone when you call.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope! I now own 3 of the HD 3-15x44 scopes and absolutely love them. Best glass and features for the money hands down. Clear glass, crisp turrets, perfect tracking. They hold zero on my 6.5cm, 7mag and 300wsm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ruger M77 Standard Length Action For those who have a Ruger M77 Standard Length Action you will need to purchase the Offset ring because this scope is compact. I only gave it 4 stars because I haven't taken it to the range. Oh I have it on a 375 Ruger wish me luck

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still holding zero after 120 rounds of 500 AutoMax Best scope I’ve ever had . Wish it came with scope covers but still l’m still 100% satisfied .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful scope, difficult mounting I really love the field of view, clarity and turrets, however I couldn’t use std leupod mounts as the scope is to short to mount on a new savage 110 long action. I had to settle on a rail mount with high rings to make it work. I had high hopes as I don’t have local dealers for this scope and bought it online. 2-10 is marketed towards hunters, but not much use in a compact design, I’m likely going to sell it after the season over for something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oil leaking constanly from Eyepiece Purchased this scope 2 weeks ago. Oil keeps seeing out of the eyepiece. Cleaned multiple lies with alcohol and cloth and still seeps out. Never had a scope leaing oil like this. Customer service is saying its normal.

Is the signature HD in 3.5x15 a one inch tube or 30 mm? I can’t find where it says. 

Asked by: Mel367
That will have a 1" tube.

hi...what's your recommendation in the Signature HD series to put on a Sako S20 243 for game from 250-300 meters maximum?

Asked by: guidos
I also have a .243 and asked myself this question. My decision came down to this. The caliber can be used for varmints to deer. I’m using mine for both so I opted for the 3-15 largely for the parallax adjustment. You stated you’re using yours for game at moderate ranges so id go with the 2-10. Less weight and money and you wouldn’t need parallax on larger targets at moderate ranges. The field of view at 2x is amazing.

Will this work on a 556?

Asked by: Eli01
Personally I’d put the 3-15 on it because of lighter weight and a gas gun isn’t going to be accurate enough to use 25x reach. IMO.
