I have the Burris Euro-Diamond 2.5x10x44mm with the Ballistic Plex on the 270wsm. Very clear and bright. The Ballistic Plex works well with the 150gr. load I am shooting. My partners has the Signature Series 3x12x44mm with the Ballistic Plex and they love them.

I have a Burris XTR 3-12x50. It is a similar design to the other high end Burris scopes. The lenses are very bright and very true color. It blew me away when I compared this scope to some $1000 scopes. This is not universally true at any price level. Also, some scopes get a good reputation which doesn't prove true to the eye. Use your eyes. Don't read about what others see. Sightron S3 models were also as good. It holds zero. 1 click = .25"@100yds of movement, or the best my rifle can do. With 1/2 to 3/4 MOA accuracy, it is hard to be sure the scope is exactly .25". It will box test all day long without missing a beat. I have shot 4 5 shot groups under an inch at 100 yards doing a box test, moving the scope for every shot. Not bad IMO.

The only issues have been. It had to be sent back to Burris twice and they had to send a part once for manufacturing issues. That was handled well enough. In addition, there are some design issues like the reticle should be FFP on this type of scope, the turrets should be .25 MOA, not inch,the eyepiece focus should lock on a tactical scope IMO, and the magnification twistie should not rortate the eyepiece(causes scope caps to move and interfere with the action.). The design issues are subjective and reflect my opinion only. Maybe those changes would add $500 to the scope, I don't know. Still they are issues, but can be overcome by user training.

I've got a 4x16x44mm Signiature series w/ ballistic plexon a bull barrel .308
A 3x9x32mm short mag w/ ballistic plex on an AR15
A 2x7 pistol scope on a Savage Striker .308.

All 3 have performed very well, look great to my eye and are Made In USA.
All 3 have 1/4" click adjustment at 100 yards.

My black diamond is clearer than my VX-III and monarch. But it also has 30mm where the other two have 1 inch tubes.
