    That's why I changed to Burris Signature series, have great focus for my eyes which didn't happen with the Leupolds.

    Same problem not enough adjustment on the Leupolds, only got my old 2x7 left on the 338 Win Mag but it's at max adjustment. Vortex and Bushnells have a little more adjustment.

    I damaged my right eye and now have to shoot left handed so most of my shooting is now longer range I cant do the snap shots anymore and need higher magnification.
    4-16x is good. Ive got 3 sitrons a tract and 2 3-10x signatures

    Sharp prices for quality optics Brian better than the rubbish from H&F and Gun city for the same money.

    Burris 1.75-5

    Can you tell me the length and weight of the Burris 1.75-5? How stiff is the zoom ring? Thx Ross

    278mm 325grms on the kitchen scales.
    The zoom ring is stiffer than a leupold but useable.
    I think its because it never got much use.

    Thx Brian, the 1.75-6 is bigger/heavier than what I am looking for.
