Burris XTR Pro Riflescope

Designed for shooters by shooters and manufactured in Greeley, CO, Burris introduced its new Xtreme Tactical (XTR) Pro line of riflescopes. These optics features new illuminated-reticle designs, Pro Accessories and the best glass and mechanical system ever featured in a Burris optic. Inspired by tactical and competition shooting and built on the success of the XTR III, the company says that precision and reliability are at the core of the XTR Pro.

Available in 5.5-30x56 mm, the XTR Pro is built with a 34 mm, nitrogen-filled tube for maximum strength and adjustment range. Elevation adjustments up to 29 mil and expanded side-parallax tuning make this line a great option for the most serious shooters—allowing for easy compensation for shots at extreme long ranges or fine-tuning focus at shorter distances.

Premium ED glass, better anti-reflective lens coatings and improved optical design—including a smaller eyepiece signature and larger eye box—provide a significantly larger field-of-view, greater depth-of-focus and outstanding light transmission. Advanced machining and incredibly tight tolerances provide the most precise optical and mechanical system ever created by Burris.

Three front-focal-plane reticle designs—each featuring both red and green illumination—provide shooters a variety of options. Demanded by tactical and competition shooters, the XTR Pro line includes the new Horus TREMOR5 reticle as well as the popular Special Competition Reticle (SCR) 2 reticle, which features an efficient grid design for extremely fast and accurate windage and elevation compensation and clear communication with spotters. The SCR ¼ MIL reticle is also available.


Also new for 2022, the XTR Pro features a tool-less Zero Click-Stop elevation turret, allowing shooters to quickly adjust zero with an innovative tool-free cam system. Users can easily swap between two new Quick Detach turret caps, including the Burris QD Race Dial and standard black QD Dial, by squeezing two release buttons located on the sides of each cap. The Burris Race Dial was designed specifically around the needs of PRS and NRL shooters with a smooth, powder-coat finish and .75-inch surface height to fit Scotch brand clear tape, perfect for making custom notes in the field.

A locking diopter ring avoids accidental changes in diopter focus during rugged use. All XTR Pro optics also include a Burris Throw Lever, which provides a simple mechanical advantage for faster and easier magnification changes.
