I have been using Burris rifle and handgun scopes for many years, and the Signature HD I used when wringing out the Franchi Momentum Elite Varmint has become my go-to-scope for a variety of purposes. Mine is the 5-25x50mm version, but 3-15x44mm and 2-10x40mm are available. Among three reticle options, two of which are illuminated, I choose the fine plex. Two are in the second focal plane while the ballistic-style “6.5 Creedmoor” reticle is first focal plane.
Features include binocular-style focusing, zero-stop turrets that lock or unlock with a push or pull, side parallax adjustment and one-piece, nitrogen-filled 30mm tube. Windage and elevation clicks are quarter-minute with a total adjustment range of 65 m.o.a. in both directions.
Weight is 24 ounces, overall length is 14.3 inches, and tube length is 6 inches. Field of views in feet at 100 yards at the lowest and highest magnifications are 22.5 and 4.5. Eye relief ranges from 3.6 to 3.3 inches, and exit pupil diameters are 8mm and 2.2 mm.
Top-quality, multicoated lenses eliminate glare and ensure maximum light transmission on dark, cloudy days, and I think the optical clarity is excellent. In addition to being waterproof, shockproof and fogproof, Burris scopes come with a Forever Warranty, which means if it’s damaged or defective, it will be repaired or replaced, not only for the original purchaser but also for future owners of the unit.
