Curious of people's impressions of the Burris XTRii 5-25x....trying to use it on a combo hunting/some long range shooting 6.5 Creedmoor Tikka CTR. Anyone have experience with them. Burris has $200 off instant rebate and can get an additional 10% off so for roughly $930. Had been considering the Nikon Black x1000 but feeling with the discount on the Burris it may be worth the jump.
I have both the 3-15 and the 5-25. I remember you saying the primary purpose of the rifle was hunting. Knowing that I would recommend the 3-15. You get a sharper image at full power with the 3-15 and the ability to hunt closer distances if needed. The 5 power minimum would not be ideal for closer distance hunting. It also is pushing the limits of the scope at 25 power. Not as sharp of image. If you wanted more than 15 power I would get the 4-20.
I had no problem shooting steel to 700 yards with my 6.8 at Fireman JGs range with the 3-15. I could see the 800 yard target no problem, just not enough BC at that distance to get any consistentcy.
