  • Reticle measurements remain correct and proportional to the target, regardless of power setting; important in tactical situations when determining target size and distance is critical
  • 34 mm body tube

  • Excellent resolution optics and tactical-appropriate reticles and adjustment knobs make it easier to identify targets and adjust for windage and elevation
  • Versatile 5-times zoom system allows for a larger field of view at close ranges and better target acquisition at long ranges
  • Zero Click Stop adjustment knobs let you quickly and easily revert back to the original yardage setting without counting clicks
  • Advanced windage and elevation adjustments are fast and easy; accurate and repeatable reticle adjustments match the measurement system of the reticle
  • High-grade optical glass provides excellent brightness and clarity with lasting durability

  • Illuminated reticle reduces time to get on target in any lighting condition and dramatically increases accuracy when target is dark
  • 11 brightness settings (spanning night vision, low light, and daytime), with a convenient battery-saver position between each setting
  • Triple 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

XTR II™ Riflescope 2-10x42mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 223.
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 5 out of 5 by from Great scope The build quality is excellent. Turrets are tactile as well as audible and very solid. the elevation turret comes exposed but has the option to capped (capped turret included). The windage turret comes capped from the factory, also very solid. Glass quality according to my aging eyes is excellent, as good or better than my Bushell ERS. The only gripe I have is the 1X magnification which is not truly 1x but is comes very close, maybe 1.5, mind you I've never looked through a variable scope which is a true 1X. Overall probably the best value for the price out there right now.

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 XTR II 8-40x50 great F-Class scope Previously used Nightforce Comp (great glass) but the thin reticle would disappear in a mid to heavy mirage. Regardless of glass quality, if you can't see the reticle, you will not hit the target. Tried the XTR II 8-40x50 and found the glass was about 90% of the NF Comp but the reticle was perfect. It's always framing the rings on the target regardless of the magnification setting due to the FFP. First purchased my first XTR II 8-40x50 in 2017, my 2nd early 2018 and just recently received my 3rd. in 2018, this scope help me win the Australian National F-Open, Australian National F-Open Grand Agg and the Mace Medal F-Open at the Australian National.

Have Interarms Mark 10 7mm mag, which Eliminator 111 scope would you recommend??

Asked by: Jim 600
That is a tough one, and usually goes the way of personal preference. Since 7mm mag is a pretty flat cartridge, I would personally be using it for a plains rifle or something for long shots. In which case I would probably do the 4-20 or 5-25. If you will be in thicker wooded areas, I would go 2-10 or 3-15.
