I'd say the Burris is the busiest out of the 3 YMMV.

I was watching a video of some guys 3-gun setup and how he wanted a Burris. I’m not sure what scope he was talking about, but I looked up the 1-6 RT-6 and I bought it within an hour. I liked the simple reticule.

It will be here Friday, but my new range badge could be a month or more before it gets here. I’ll try it out when I get the badge and report back here.

Busyness is your take, but I want that center dot, which to base things at close distance. It’s all in ones perception, I guess.

I have a dual reticle eotech with 3x magnifier and I loved it....and then I bought a thermal. That was a mistake! Love my thermal but now I want more.

I like either Vortex or Nikon. Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10 or Nikon Monarch 2.5-10 for the budget you have. You can get a Nikon ProStaff for less and they are pretty nice for the money. [EDIT I re-read your post. You may want a 1-6 or 2-7 power scope].

dread, Agree with you 100%. I started my night hunting about 6-7 yearsd ago with a ATN scope that fits in front of my regular scope. Worked great especially with an illuminated reticle on my Nikon scope. I then went huntign with a buddy who had a thermal and it was all over! Now I am hooked on thermal scopes. Definintely worth the $ for the amount of fun you have with them. I have since converted about a dozen buddies whose wives no longer let me into their homes. ATN's new ThorHD is amazing and the features just keep getting better. I was checking out the latest and greatest from ATN and the price and size are both getting smaller.

Figured I'd temporarily revive this thread. Got this rifle out to range and got it sighted in, and all I can say; is that I love the whole setup.

I interchange my Burris AR536 and itís never failed me. It all depends on what youíre really looking for. Itís nice for the price range I think. They usually go for around $400, but Iíve seen them as low as $200.
