Veracity™ Riflescope 2-10x42mm

The smallest member of the Veracity family, the Veracity 2-10x42mm is small enough for driven hunts and stalking in timber, but 10x magnification offers enough zoom for most longer range hunts as well. The compactness and low weight make it very popular for lightweight rigs.

The 2-10x uses the  Burris M.A.D. Knob System, which allows for custom etched knobs or quickly switching to available exposed knobs. It ships with low capped knobs. Other options are available from Burris.

The scope is backed by the Burris Forever Warranty™, and delivers true performance for a lifetime.

Veracity Riflescopes
  • Designed for serious big game and varmint hunters
  • Its Ballistic Plex E1™ FFP reticle has trajectory-compensating technology and cascading dots for wind drift compensation when using nearly any big game hunting cartridge
  • Calculated in MOA, the Ballistic Plex E1™ FFP reticle features trajectory compensation out to 600 yds.
  • Wind dots representing a 10 m.p.h. wind adjustment are located at every hash mark out to 500 yds.
  • The 50 mm objective allows for maximum light collection
  • Versatile 5-times zoom system provides a larger field of view at close ranges and better target acquisition at long ranges
  • Front focal plane reticle design allows the reticle size to increase or decrease as magnification is increased or decreased; trajectory compensation is always correct and proportional for the selected power setting; also called first focal plane or FFP
  • Reticle measurements remain correct and proportional to the target, regardless of power setting
  • Reticle features are useful for determining target size and distance to the target, and for trajectory compensation at multiple magnification settings
  • Progressively Thick Crosshairs (PTC) are very fine in the center and progressively thicker away from the center, for ultra-fast target engagement at close ranges and in low-light conditions; effective at any magnification
  • Low-profile adjustment knobs have finger-adjustment zero for windage and elevation; easily resets to zero once sighted-in
  • Advanced windage and elevation adjustment matches the reticle’s MOA measurement system; adjustment is accurate, repeatable, fast, and easy
  • Ergonomic side focus allows for easy-to-reach parallax adjustment from 50 yds. to infinity
  • High-grade optical glass provides excellent brightness and clarity with lasting durability
  • Index-matched, Hi-Lume® multicoating provides low-light performance and glare elimination
  • Double internal spring-tension system allows the scope to hold zero through shock, recoil, and vibrations
  • Waterproof
  • Nitrogen-filled body tubes prevent internal fogging in the cold and rain
  • Precision-gauged and hand-fitted internal assemblies maintain a consistent point of impact through the magnification range, regardless of shock and vibration
  • Solid, 1-piece outer tube is stress-free and durable—withstands shock and vibration from even the heaviest-recoiling calibers
  • 30 mm body tube
  • Covered by the Burris Forever Warranty

Veracity™ Riflescope 2-10x42mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making things possible The moment I saw the first focal plane feature on this scope, along with the reticle, I knew I had to have it. All the adjustments on this scope are of the best quality, build, and feel. I purchased the m.a.d system and I am very excited to get some custom knobs for this scope. This is by far the clearest scope I have ever owned. It gathers light beautifully and I feel like I can really push the limits with this scope. I am using it for long range on a 6.5 creedmoor and it has exceeded my expectations. I would definitely buy it again, and recommend it to a friend. I own 4 burris scopes, and they are by far the best scopes out there for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, Resettable Bought this a while back for my Savage 25 in 17 Hornet. Zeroed easily at 100 yards shooting factory 20gr Vmax. Did a lot of target shooting with it until last month i was finally able to go on a Prairie Dog hunt. Took a PD at 324 yards with the little hornet. Saw somebody test there target knobs on youtube by putting so many turns left,right, up and down then rezeroed. Dead on. Tried it myself except with it zeroed at 100 yes, i did 4moa up and right to the top/right target. Bullseye. Then 8moa down and left to the bottom left target. BULLSEYE. Get the picture?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my first scope with all the dots & dashes, tapered crosshairs and the reticle on the front focal plane. All of these "advanced" features were confusing at the first time at the range for sight in. The crosshairs shrink to only a portion of what you can see at 3X. At 15X, the dots look like bullet holes on the target and the dashes clutter the view. When hunting you don't notice all these things. At 3X, it is easy to locate the target and put the crosshairs where they need to be. I have not had time to take the scope to the 300-600 yard ranges yet to calibrate all the dots and dashes. If they work as advertised I would raise the rating to 5 star

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope and warranty! Awesome scope and warranty! Couldn't ask for more. There was a bad accident last hunting season and my gun fell off a cliff totaling the scopes elevation dial. Sent it in no questions asked and they sent me back a new scope. Burris honored their warranty and saved my bacon. Not only did they replace the scope itself, but they replaced the broken sun shade and the lens cover caps. I highly recommend going with Burris for your scope. I really like the quality of the glass, reticle, and functionality of it. Excellent quality for its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need in a modern scope I looked through this scope and knew right away that it was the one for my .204 Ruger. The glass is phenomenally good for the money and is as clear as my March scope is. Has a zero-stop feature too! The FFP is fantastic and zooms smoothly and the reticle is ultra-crisp. The reticle is perfect for long-range shooting and works great for holdover on many modern flat shooters. Zero at 200yds and the next lines down are holds for 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700. The Veracity is rugged and feels solid although the knob clicks feel a bit mushy. Repeatability is excellent from full scale back to center. Oh, did I say it has great glass? I also own the Burris Fullfield II and a Six-X and this one is the best yet. Burris is stepping way up in features and quality. I just wish it was made in the USA...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 3-15x50 scope I spent a couple hours at cabelas looking through every scope possible In the $800 range and the Burris scope really stood out to me. After getting it home and mounted I stepped out my back door to my shooting range and tried it out. Awesome scope! Field of view is awesome and eye relief is awesome. Not to mention the e1 reticle is awesome. Overall, great scope I will buy another one of the exact scope again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great FFP scope I now have three different Veracity scopes on my .300 Win Mag, .308 Win and .300 Blackout rifles. The 5-25 is on my 300 Win Mag Remington 700 Long Range with a SWR Specwar 762 suppressor. I chose this scope because it is a First (or front) Focal Plane scope. I like the fact that the relationship between the target and reticle never changes. On most other ballistic scopes, if you are just off of high power where the ballistic drop reticles are calibrated at, you will be way off on the drops. The top turret of this scope has a zero stop that comes back down to your zero range. The clicks are spot on for 1/4 MOA and are repeatable. I know that from my 300 yard zero, it is usually 8.5MOA up to a 650 yard target depending on temp and humidity. I have killed deer, coyotes and raccoons at 600 yards + thanks to the repeatability of this scope. With 64 MOA of vertical adjustment, I have no problems getting enough adjustment out of the scope. If you think you might need more, get the signature series 30mm rings and put the + and - shims in the proper spots in the rings and you have now put an extra 20MOA cant into your system. The rings come with +10 and -10 shims. I've sold several scope and ring combos to several customers and have not had one complaint yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope for the money I purchased this Scope for my Savage 116 Weather Warrior is 300 win mag and it is everything that Burris Claims. It's clear, bright and easy to use, the Burris E1 reticle allows for acurate hold overs and windadge. The feature of the new ballistic tools on-line and the ease of use make this scope intuitive and the next thing I'll be doing is taking advantage of the Custom Ballistic turrets once I find what my Rifle likes to shoot. Burris has really out done themselves and you can't beat the warranty. I'll be shooting with this glass for a long time to come.

Which rings/mount should be used with this scope when mounted on a Ruger Precision?

looking at a Burris veracity 5-25x50 to put on a .17 HMR varmint rifle - is that a good match or completely over the top fro such a small bore gun?

Asked by: bladerunner
To be honest it really comes down to personal preference. I would say if you need to focus inside 50 yards, you might be better off with something that adjusts down that far. (that would be more for the Timberline series)

Which scopes can be used on a air springer rifle. I have a Diana 54 air king. Thanks for your time Dwaine 

Asked by: Headshot
All Burris Optics are recoil rated to beyond .50BMG in both directions of recoil so you should be good with whatever you choose.
