Burris is running a sale on 2 FF II's, with a $ markdown plus a Rebate. I just bought from Cabella's & had it shipped for Free a Burris 4x14x42 FF II w/ paralax adjustment for $299 + tax, and will be getting a $100 Rebate back for a net cost to me of $218.
Are these a First Focal Plane & Mil/Mil Long Range Scopes like the high dollar stuff that the guys who regularly shoot past 500 yards and out to a 1000/1500 yards use...NO....but neither do I. 90% of the game I've killed has been at under 250/300 yards, even with a simple fixed 4x duplex that is the great average distance of kill shots for 98% of hunters I ever talked to. My best off hand shot, leaning against the fender of a Ford Bronco at a Wyoming Pronghorn was taken with a standard MV 257 Rbts in 100gr WW ST's at 2700fps wearing a 2x7x36 FCH Vari X II at 444 yards and taken cleanly with out a followup shot or any tracking needed. Practice with what you got is the key.
These Burris scopes have a Lifetime warranty, decent glass yadda yadda yadda and will work fine for the job they are designed for, as they have for me for the last 20 years. Go look at SWFA & Cabela's Bargain Cave on line to see what I'm talking about. I've put 1000's of rounds out of a series of 3x9x40's in the same FF II grade scope with never a flutter or losing Zero, or needing any repairs.
