I've had great results with the Burris XTR II, but can't speak on the Athlon...

Burris has always been amongst the "best" at having the least amount of erector travel...which is a GREAT thing,because they had to go Signature eccentrics to salve all them woes over the years.

Their XTR II's "boast" less than 3MOA per maintube diameter millimeter,which is VERY "impressive".(grin)

I've more than a few Fixed Fuckers which cough up 40 Mils on the erector alone,after their respective zero's (50 to 250yds depending upon the platform).

Wait 'til you see the new rifle that arrived and what it'll cough up...........(grin)

Thinking now i may just stay the 6x MQ course. Have a couple extra on hand.

Be a good excuse to pick up a new shotgun for duck season.

I know that fixed scopes are more robust but I am hard headed and want to go variable on this one. I have narrowed my choices down to the SS 3x15 and the Athlon Ares 4.


I don't think I could bring myself to say NF or SS in the same breath as Athlon...............might as well go buy a Bushy AR glass grin

This ^^^^but hard to swallow the $$$ compared to various SS's.

But as to vertical travel, I guess I don't see the need for 140 MOA vs 100 as an A-Max in a 7mm drops around 60-65 MOA at 1500 long when zeroed at 250'ish & started at 2700 FPS.

The extry travel is nice to have but unless flinging round nosed punkins, more that I need for my uses & ranges spinning good boolits at decent velocities.

I'm often balls out an erector,stealing from the windshield on Fixed Fuckers and certainly would not want less travel.

Hoping to eek 35-ish Mils on the other side of a 200yd zero,with this piece of shit...and will know for certain in the morning.



Stabbed 60 MOA of inclination in it,to start with...................
