Burris fullfield ii. There is 2 version of the scope. Both versions look similar. But they do have some difference between them. We are going to review the 3-9x40mm version but we are going to mention the difference between the 3-9x40mm and 4.5-14x42mm at the end of the Burris Fullfield ii review.

For the price, Burris provided some great lenses. You have no room to complain against the fully coated lenses. Yes, they are fog proof, water-resistant and also has anti-glare feature. We wouldn’t say you can compare them with top-end lenses. You can get better lenses in other scopes for quite a similar price, you can check our other reviews but this is not a comparison review so we won’t compare it with other scopes.
One of the good things about the scope. It’s one of those scopes where it’s good looking alongside having a solid structure. You can easily tell by the added pictures that the scope is a good looking one.
The body of the scope is made with aluminum so it’s pretty solid and can take some quite heavy recoil knockback with ease. Its also super lightweight. It won’t add that much of an extra weight including the mounts.
The reticle in this one is a ballistic PLEX reticle. The ballistic plex is an uncluttered simple elegant design, or at least that’s what Burris claims.
Well, we have been saying it for a while now reticle choice depends on the user. But we are reviewers after all so we need to give it a verdict right?
In our opinion, the reticle is quite simple to get the hang of. The ballistic circles in the bottom vertical line can help calculate the bullet drop compensation.
It’s true that the scope isn’t cluttered with lots of dots or circle we will give it to Burris for honesty. We will add pictures of the reticle for you to have a better understanding.
If the heading already didn’t give it away, the scope has a zoom range of 3 to 9. Which is moderate for some regular hunting, varmint hunting or shooting practice perhaps. Whatever you are into. So does the zooming feels smooth?
Absolutely the fast focus helps while zeroing out the scope you will slightly feel the scope is hitching or some distortion but due to having fast focus the scope going to revert back to focus mode within seconds.
9x is pretty moderate for any kind of hunting. 3-gunning and medium-range shooting competition can be also done by this if you want that is. If you like the old school look and the texture of the zooming ring you will absolutely love this scope.
We mentioned a little about the turrets in the zooming part, the turret which we personally love because of the look and feel are quite sturdy. Due to the scope having a shockproof body the turrets don’t tend to move on their own from recoil shock.
And yes you can zero the scope using the turrets. But while doing so you might feel a little distortion in the objective lens but don’t worry that’s not permanent, once you get used to it you won’t even notice that (or at least that’s what we hope).
3-9x zoom is quite handy when it comes to long-range gunning and that type of range is quite necessary for hunting purposes.
Ballistic Plex reticle is available.
You can access all the ballistic tools in Burris’s website.
The lenses are multi-coated with HiLume for light transmission and clarity.
Quad sealed lenses so they are not going anywhere, they are made to absorb recoil shocks like a champ.
We are almost at the end of our Burris Fullfield ii review. Let’s add the pros and cons before we finish –
Now Let’s Mention The Difference Between The Two Models We Mentioned At The Beginning -
Burris 4.5 x-14 x -42mm Fullfield II Ballistic Plex Riflescope
The Burris fullfield ii has two versions of them with different zoom, one has the 3-9x zoom and has a 40mm objective lens. Where the other version has 4.5-14x zoom with 42mm objective lens. You can see the difference between the two.
The 3-9x version is a little bit smaller than the 4.5-14x version. As you expected the bigger brother weights a little more than the little one. It’s not that much but it’s there.
The bigger one also costs more than the smaller one.
Would you like to read our more review? Here you go:
That is basically it, both of them has the matte black coating. If you need more range you obviously going to choose the 4.5-14x version. We suggest both of them as a viable option for this budget range. With that said we end our Burris Fullfield ii review here, Thanks for reading…
