XTR II™ Riflescope 3-15x50mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great FFP Scope I've had this scope now for close to 6 months and it is mounted on a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle shooting targets at 100 to 600 yards. Clarity is very good as is focus and parallax adjustments. Windage and elevation adjustments are precise, and easily made by counting clicks or viewing the knob graduations. Best of all the adjustments are repeatable, so if you dial out for shots past your zero distance returning back to your zero is accurate and spot on. The Zero Stop works. I'm quite pleased with this scope and consider it a bargain and there is little different between the Burris XTR II and another leading brand I own that costs almost twice as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing scope Burris has a winner here! They really out did themselves on this scope. This isn't just some review cause I own this scope....I've owned a lot of scopes, particularly ffp tactical scopes this has impressed me enough to write a review. This was impressive enough so that I sold all my other scopes and now have two 3-15's and the 4-20.( and the scopes i sold are high end) Great glass...and I mean clear even at high power. consistent eye relief, and built like a tank. Love the turrets and ease of reading the windage marks. The zero stops are awesome. I could live without the illuminated reticle but that's just me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rotating reticle in xtr2 I bought the scope last year, the xtr2 8-40. Was really happy with it until I realised there is a slight shift in rotation of the reticle. Assuring myself it was just my movements behind the gun, it wasn’t until I used it in a prs comp that I noticed long shots with hold overs (500-700m) would miss. Consistently. Then change the magnification and I would impact. Consistently. Tested it on a bench and sure enough the reticle shifts. Bought in Redding CA but live in Australia, Burris told me to see my local distributor, they told me to contact Burris as it was bought in the states. Unless this is resolved I will be staying away from the brand. Will happily update this in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Scope !!! I got this scope; the XTR II 8x40-50mm, last month. Have it mounted with the Burris P.E.P.R 34mm (AR style scope mount) on my Rem.700 LA .300WinMag. It's just amazing how awesome it does the job, no problems at all; great magnification power, crisp clear reticle, easy to adjust, turrets are flawlessly awesome with a solid gripy feeling, of course still holds zero after 200+ rounds I've shot since I got it. Only question I do have to the Burris Specialists or any others here, I shoot 8" targets with this scope at 500, 700, 800, 900, and 1100 yards and its works perfectly when I use the Strelok Pro app on my phone, but it seems 1200yards is the limit on this scope. My question is, can I reach the 1400 or 1600 yards with it ??? If yes, how can I do that ???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A top notch scope!! I have two XTR II scopes. Very clear. Adjustments are spot on. Repeatability is excellent. All the right features. This is a lot of scope for the money! I theach Law Enforcement Snipers. I do not understand some of the reviews complaining about the turrets, Why with a mil dot scope. Yes mils are used for hold over or hold offs. There intended purpose is ranging the target. Then adjusting the turrets for a precision shot. Provided the shooter has done his work at the range and has their range cards \ data cards put together. If your looking for a scope in this price range that preform like one for twice the money get a XTR II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience with an Amazing Scope About six months ago I bought my first Burris scope. It was my first experience with a FFP scope so I was a little apprehensive. I had bought it in anticipation of getting a RPR in 6.5 Creedmoor but could not get my hands on one. Mounted this scope on a Remington 700 5R Tactical 308 and it has been amazing. The Burris ballistics tools have been right on and have helped me reach targets to 770 yards with no problem. Loved my first scope so much that I just purchased a second (Burris XTR II 5 X 25 X 50) last week to mount on my new RPR 6.5 Creedmoor. I just sighted it in last Saturday in about 9 shots. It took 9 because I put three in the same hole at fifty yards so I thought I was missing. I would highly recommend any of the Burris XTR II's. The clarity is great and the new ballistic tools are spot on. I'm definitely a Burris fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix I bought a used 3X12 and as with another reviewer the retical illumination didn't work. I could feel that the control ring for the rheostat war loose. Removed the battery installation cover, lifted out the rubber washer under the battery, took a .050in. Allen wrench and tightend the two screws that hold the ring on. Took about 3 minutes total. Scope illumination now works perfect. Bought this great scope at a real good price because of that little problem. I am very very happy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy contender This scope if fantastic. At the price point i really don't see how it could be beat. The clarity is top notch. The light gathering ability is spot on for its class. Illuminated reticle is nice. The turrets are positive clicks. The tracking of the scope is dead on. Holds zero on my Sako A7 30-06. I just took it out for a bear hunt when it was raining it didn't fog up once. Overall you owe it to yourself to give this scope a look if your shopping for a mid high end scope. Do side by side against any scope in its price range i think you will be very impressed. Also one of the most important things (Forever Warranty). That's enough said why buy from someone who doesn't stand behind there product accident's happen.

How is this scopes (5-25x50) performance in low light conditions? Would the 4-20x 50 be better for low light performance?

Asked by: Steven217
Hello, A lower power scope will almost always appear brighter due to the nature of the way light travels through lenses.

Recently purchased this scope. Planning with a 90moa of spec elevation I put a 20moa base with a 20moa rings on. However when i went to zero at 100yd it stopped 3moa short. CS said its more like 30/60 so why dont i have 60 moa of adjustments to zero?

Asked by: 1Bryce1
Overall adjustment does not equate well to available adjustment for dialing. Adjustment will always be needed to zero the scope. Additionally, any adjustment used in windage will reduce available elevation adjustment, and vice versa. This is true of any scope. If you cant the scope so that almost all the internal adjustment is used in one direction you could run into clarity issues and issues with holding zero. When a scope is near being maxed out, there is not sufficient pressure on the guide tube to stop it from bouncing during recoil which can in turn cause accuracy issues. As for clarity, in that position the guide tube will be so far maxed out that your image quality will suffer until you are dialed more toward the middle of the scope's adjustment range. In theory it can work, but the drawbacks are often not worth it.
