At Shot Show, I visited Burris’ booth to check out their new products. Burris is a well-known manufacturer of sports optics for hunters, bird watchers, and competitive shooters. This year, Burris introduced a new series of rifle scopes for PRS and long-range shooting (XTR III), a new F-class reticle for the XTR II 8-40×56, and a quick-detachable P.E.P.R. Mount.
The new series is called XTR 3, and it is to be their new flagship series of rifle scopes. In this series, 2 new rifle scopes will be available – 3.3-18×50 and 5.5-30×56.

New F-Class DHC reticle
This new reticle is designed for F-Class shooting, and for only one model specifically, the XTR II 8-40×50. This new reticle is very thin and thus perfect for benchrest and F-Class competitions. The XTR 2 8-40×50 has a 5x zoom ratio and an adjustable parallax from 50 meters to infinity, so it is suitable also for very precise short range shooting as well.
The new QD P.E.P.R. mount is designed for AR platform rifles to ensure a perfect eye-relief thanks to the cantilever design. This new mount features quick-release levers for fast and repeatable detaching and mounting, and special polymer ring inserts which provide 5 to 40 MOA of inclination.
This new Burris mount will be available for rifle scopes with a mounting diameter of 30 millimeters, 34 millimeters, and 35 millimeters. The design is very slick and the mount will surely look great on any weapon platform.
