Signature HD 2-10x40mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31.
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 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 Solid Optic I bought the E3 Illuminated and will never own another optic for any rifle...ever. This scope is amazing and the No Questions asked warranty solidifies the purchase. I've used it on the range and glassing for animals. I can't say enough about the quality of this product. The only complaint (which is stupidly minor) is the lack of covers, which have to be purchased separate. That was not a deterrent for my purchase of this product, however. Highly recommend, especially the E3 Illuminated 3x15x44. If you've had an issue and haven't had it corrected by Burris, you should just keep to yourself. They stand behind their products and will cover you, No Questions Asked.

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 Excellent glass at a low price. Pros: Excellent clear, lightweight scope at a very reasonable price. Great low profile locking turrets with zero stop. Also has a generous amount of eye relief. Cons: no graduations for range reference on the parallax dial, which aren't technically needed, but would be nice to get you close before making fine parallax adjustment. Also the occular lense is on the big side of things and may require taller turrets or a custom bolt handle to clear. A cheek riser may be needed by some people to compensate.

anyone happen to know if the lenses are fully multi-coated on the E3 illuminated 3-15? and are they built well enough to handle the recoil of something like a 338 win mag?

Asked by: JonBee
They are fully multi-coated and they're rated to .50BMG so no problem there.

What would be your scope recommendations for a 6.5 PRC which will primarily be used for Wyoming antelope? I doubt that I will be shooting much past 400 yards. Also, would you recommend precision sighting, i.e. setting the turrets for each individual shot?

Asked by: Egfish
I'd recommend a Veracity for your setup, probably in 4-20 or 5-25. They do have turrets that are very conducive to dialing. It really depends on your personal preference.

Does this come with mounting rings, or would I need to purchase those separate? What is recommended for a Ruger American 308?

does this model come in 2nd FP with tall turrets and fine cross hairs?

Asked by: Pwoolie
The closest to that would be item 200534. That one has a fine plex, 2nd focal plane, and target turrets.
