    Burris is upping their game. Again. An American company, using American workers, making American products. If that doesnt tickle ur fancy you probably tested positive for commi and you should quarantine 🤣🤣🤣

    The XTR Pro will again be made in Greeley, Colorado. Im very excited about this optic.


    FEATURES

    5-30x56

    34mm tube

    new SCR-Q reticle (1/4 mil tree less cluttered)

    2lb 11oz on my scale with Hawkins rings on it

    best in class FOV

    rock solid tracking

    improved glass over the already impressive XTR3
    (looking through the pro next to the 3, you can see the fov is the same BUT the pro looks like it is on a higher magnification because the image was noticeably better)

    illuminated red or grn and goes to 11 laugh out loud

    paralax down to 20 yards

    2 different QUICK DETACH turrets included (technically 3)
    -white comp turret to draw on
    -black normal with large easy to see #’s
    -tooless rezero turret

    throw lever included

    tooless re-zero

    new 12 mil knobs with larger spacing

    capped windage

    Burris no question asked forever warranty


    im sure i forgot something but for now thats what i got. i have shot one match with it and i am super impressed. i shot in NM in 50+ mph winds with my 308. dust like you wouldn’t believe. scope performed like a boss and i was able to take top 308 and tied for 5th overall in the match. not bad for the Lords caliber

    Just a one day match coming up on the books for me. Shooting a PRS 22 Rimfire match this Saturday, then tossing the Pro on a 6.5 Creedmoor AR10 and running Gas Gun division in a PRS regional points match on the 22nd.

    I've had three range trips with mine so far. Been very impressed. Looking forward to putting it through its paces at a match and tossing some scopes alongside for comparison. I've had mine alongside a Kahles K525i and ATACR, looking forward to dropping it next to my buddies 20x ZCO.

    ETA to shelves. I just bought a Leupold because I couldn't find any Burris stuff in stock anywhere to even look at.

    Some have already been sold to retailers. They have a fair number of some of each reticle in stock, and this scope is in production.

    I cant say the day, but it won't be long..

    Hey @Birddog6424 is there a difference in glass between the new Pro vs the XTR iii?
    There is. The Pro is upgraded ED glass. The difference is noticeable.

    Not that the XTRIII is a slouch by any means. It is solid glass for the sub 2k price point. But the clarity of the PRO is a measurable step up.

    Hopefully Ilya Koshkin will get his hands on one soon, or Glassaholic (or both) for reviews. Ilya has seen the prototype and noted the glass was nicely upgraded. But he's waiting on a production model for a full review.

    Brown was already taken...

    Not sure what the plans are for color going forward. I want one in Zombie Green!
    I’m sorely tempted to see if these trickle into EV, and if they do I may have to give one a go. I almost got the III, but was holding out for the illuminated model so it may just happen.

    As crazy as this sounds, we are hearing the price is going to drop a little on the illuminated XTR3i. It could still be in the hunt for you as well.

    We'll know more when they make the product announcement on the 27th.

    Oh gosh, that reticle. JVCR, PR2, and now an updated SCR with easy to read windage marks. This looks fantastic. I have a hard time discerning .6 and .8 from each other on some reticles, and the up, down, up, down rotation is so much better than the old sine wave patterns.

    Tremor5 gets rid of my biggest complaints with the Tremor3. Those "mover" marks on the Tremor3 suck.

    I just hope the glass is good. I wanted an XTR3 but heard that same story in the glass department as the 2.

    All of the XTR2s that I've had were miserable, to the point that I actually emailed burris when I recieved the first one to see if I needed to send it back.

    SCR2 vs SCR-Q in your opinion?

    I get that .25mil should be less cluttered, but the SCR2 isn't a particularly cluttered reticle to begin with.
    Do you think the SCR-Q actually offers a notable improvement?


    i think our brain works in quarters quicker than .2’s and so we dont sit there as long and can react quicker.

    also less likely to over think a wind call maybe…

    i designed the 1/4 ret for the xtr3 and noone bought in. got the idea from my march 5-40 had a 3/4 mark that i loved. i think less is more is growing.

    again ive only used it in one match. and i was shooting a 308. in 30-50 mph winds. precision wasnt a concern.

    i just arrived in AZ for an NRL match with my 6.5 creed. very excited. i almost think .2 is over precise. cant wait to report back.

    whats your thoughts??

    lots of peeps love the jvcr as it gives plenty needed while stoll basic. lots of people not only had success but still like the gen2xr me included. i think this is a great middlemground


    Hmmmm

    there is a xtr3 thread. i believe some early xtr3-18’s had a bad glass run but was quickly fixed and that was over a year ago

    same with the xtr2. early release struggles. they cleaned it up and the 4-20 is still one of my fav scopes. i have a top 5 in a prs match shooting a 308 with it.

    that being said, looking through the pro next to the 3, you can see the fov is the same BUT the pro looks like it is on a higher magnification because the image was noticeably better

    GL man. lots of good options out there. just so glad companies like Burris are asking shooters their opinions and needs in a scope AND APPLYING THEM. ha.

    I can’t wait to see what the street price is.

    Hopefully some retailers start pre-orders soon.

    I’m glad they got rid of the knurling from the XTRIII. The red is annoying but I guess it can always be coated.

    Wait, just to clarify, they are dropping both a Pro version with illumination, as well as a regular XTR3 with illumination?

    I'm inclined to agree. Even looking at your pic above, if you look away, and say to yourself to find .75 as fast as you can, and look back at the picture, it's easy to find it. Do the same for .25, and .5. You can find .6 and .8 on the SCR2 just fine, but it's easier to find the .75 on the Q.

    Someone's going to reply saying to not be a b!tch and stop whining, but eye strain while on the clock for a full day or two will wear on your ability to make impacts. It's not about the SIN wave style being a problem, it's about streamlining the process to make stacked marginal improvements.

    I agree, bet they did the red so everyone asks "what scope is that". Easy to identify.

    This looks like a home run. I’m definitely getting a couple. I wish they’d have done a 3.3-18 version as well. Modern hunters need some lovin’ too. Lol.

    I’m also really liking the SCR2-Q. Even just looking at it in the pic you posted @D_TROS it seems faster to me.

    That is bullshit whoever told you that. The Glass in the regular XTR3 is SIGNIFICANTLY better than the XTR2. XTR2 had abysmal glass.

    I assume this new PRO will be really good.
