First Look: Burris RT-15 and RT-25 Riflescopes

posted on February 3, 2020

The new Burris RT-15 and RT-25 riflescopes are created from the ground up for the popular and growing sport of precision rifle shooting in mind. Designed for fun at the range or a high-stakes shooting match, these scopes are ideal for people who need a way to get into the action with a precision optic, without breaking the bank. Gun owners of all kinds, from airgunners to long-range rifle enthusiasts, will enjoy the features such as a first-focal-plane and SCR 2 Mil dot reticle that are included on both models. 

Shooters can dial in exact holdover and windage using the precise 1/10 mil and zero click stop turrets while side parallax adjustment allows fine-tuning focus to get the most out of the front focal plane special-competition SCR 2 Mil reticles. The 5-25x56 RT-25 is capable of 80 MOA total elevation travel capability and the 3-15x50 RT-15 produces 65 MOA total elevation travel.

The rugged new RT-15 and RT-25 riflescopes are built with a waterproof, shockproof and fogproof nitrogen-filled 30 mm tube. Like all Burris scopes, these are designed to handle recoil from any direction, which makes them a perfect option for competition airgunners. Another feature of the Burris RT scopes is an integrated adjustable throw lever which can be placed anywhere on the power ring for quick and custom focus selection.
