Burris Optics has just released the new Veracity PH 4-20x50 mm riflescope which is built around Burris’ new PEK technology. PEK stands for “programmable elevation knob” which is a modern and click-less mechanical and digital elevation turret which works with the Veracity PH riflescope’s built in HUD (heads up display). Using the Burris Connect Mobile app, shooters are also able to upload ballistic information from their rifle to the Veracity PH scope, creating almost seamless elevation adjustments and holds.

The Connect Mobile app can communicate via Bluetooth with the Veracity PH scope even without background connectivity or any nearby cell phone towers. Within the app, hunters and shooters can create profiles for each of their rifles and enter detailed information for use in conjunction with the app’s built in ballistic calculator. The Programmable Elevation Knob works off a digital sensor along with a click-less mechanical elevation turret and is accurate to 1/10 MOA, which is even smaller degree of adjust than .1 MRAD. When combined, the Veracity PH riflescope’s HUD, PEK and the Burris Connect app are intended to provide shooters with all of the information they need without having to break their crosshair sight picture for retrieval. Specifically designed for big game and varmint hunters, the Burris Veracity PH 4-20x50 mm riflescope is ideal for making longer shots, with its built in 70 MOA of total elevation adjustment, app and HUD, which can also display rifle cant.
