The Burris Veracity PH riflescope allows you to add your rifle's ballistics information into a simplified digital optics app that anyone can master. Any simpler, and it'd be cheating.

There are few challenges greater to the average shooter than the process of accurately dialing a scope onto targets of various distances and angles. Sometimes the trophy of a lifetime is bungled when a shooter fumbles for a data book in a panicked effort to convert distance into clicks on a scope. Burris has a cost-effective solution to make the whole process of hitting these types of targets simple. The Burris Veracity PH allows shooters to add their rifle’s essential ballistics information into a simplified and familiar optics package anyone can use.

Going Digital

You begin by building a profile of your rifle on the Burris Connect app. Burris made that step easy by including a scannable QR code in the manual that’ll find the app for you. Connect to the scope via Bluetooth and follow the quick startup guide. I had mine up and running in 24 minutes after opening the box, including mounting on the rifle.

The app will take you through the process of zeroing your elevation turret, setting the internal bubble level, and inputting your ballistic data. It has a library of the most common factory ammunition and will populate most of the fields for you. Once all the information is complete, simply upload the data to the scope itself. When done, all of your rifle’s parameters are electronically tied to the elevation turret, and it’s time to have fun.

The HUD

Fighter pilots use heads up displays (HUDs) to give them mission-essential information surrounding a gunsight. The Veracity’s HUD gives you just what you need as well. It’s like having a ballistic computer in your field of view. You can select yards, meters, or MOA in the display, keeping your eyes on the target and not the turret. The accurate bubble level indicator keeps you from canting to one side or the other. The wind holdover display shows an accurate holdover adjustment that automatically updates with your distance setting. The preset on my wind was 10 mph at 90 dgrees. It’s a good theoretical starting point when you’re on location. A battery level is also in there, which is pretty handy.

The duplex reticle itself is clear and uncluttered. There is a fine 1-MOA-wide crosshair in the center, with 10 MOA of wind holdover on each side marked in 1-MOA tick marks. A vertical 10-MOA line is above with a 10-MOA bullet drop compensator at the bottom. A generous 4-20X (front focal plane) range of magnification makes the reticle very useable through the full range of its magnification.

A “clickless” zero-stop elevation turret utilizes a digital position sensor, allowing shooters to smoothly dial-in as precise as 1/10 MOA versus a standard ¼-MOA turret that uses detents. You simply rotate the turret until the desired number is in the HUD, and you’re done. The turret has a 34-MOA limit, with 66 MOA of total elevation range. There’s plenty of travel to get to 1,000 yards and beyond.

The battery life on the Veracity PH is roughly 40 hours of continuous use. If your batteries die expectedly, the turret is also marked in ¼-MOA ticks, so it can be used like any traditional scope.

So, Does It All Work?

The system works wonderfully. Use your favorite laser rangefinder to obtain an accurate distance to any given target, shoulder the rifle, and take aim. Turn the elevation turret until the range appears in the HUD, and you’re ready to put a round on target. The Veracity PH does all the rest. Whether you’re aiming downwards into a riverbed or up along a ridge, the Veracity PH’s angle compensation will calculate the ballistics for you. If you cant the rifle right or left, the handy bubble indicator will keep you straight. The HUD has five power levels to make it comfortable to see in just about any light. You can adjust side-focus parallax from 50 yards to infinity, making it a great all-round hunting scope or perhaps an ideal PRS match optic. No matter what your use, it’s an amazing piece of equipment that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.
