Burris Optics XTR III Overview

  • 1Description

The Burris Optics 5.5-30x56 XTR III MAD Riflescope is designed for precision long-range shooting in all light conditions, with their proprietary Modular Adjustment Dial (MAD) turret system that allows you to order custom turret knobs to make the scope truly your own. This model ships with a standard exposed tactical elevation turret knob that gives you fast and full access to the wide adjustment range and a capped low-profile windage knob. Burris includes a low tactical windage knob if you require or want to have fast access to the windage adjustment, and you can order laser-etched custom dials calibrated to your rifle's specific ammunition and load so your ballistic drop is as accurate as possible.

Optically the XTR III comes with a powerful zoom mechanism to bring the magnification from a low 5.5x for mid-range varmint hunting to a powerful 30x that will allow you to reach out to extreme distances when going after large game across the wide expanses of the American West. Its massive 56mm objective draws in the large amounts of light required to keep views bright and clear when viewing targets at extreme long ranges with the magnification dialed up to maximum, or in challenging light conditions such as at dawn and dusk. Complementing the objective size are index-matched multicoatings that are engineered specifically for the lens glass to maximize light transmission and deliver bright high-contrast views at all magnifications.

To get you precisely on-target the windage and elevation turrets have impact point corrections of 1/10 MIL per click with 16 MIL of adjustment range on the windage and an exceptional 26 MIL on the elevation that speaks to its longer range capabilities. The reticle is specifically designed for precision shooting at the competition level, with an array of hashmarks on all axes to give you the tools you need to get precisely on-target. To improve shot precision and ease of use it is located on the front (first) focal plane so when the magnification of the scope is increased, the reticle's proportional size to the view changes as you increase or decrease magnification—so the reticle's subtensions remain constant throughout the entire zoom range, eliminating the need to do time-consuming calculations.

Optical Performance
  • Exceptional 5.5-30x magnification for precise accuracy at medium to extreme long range
  • Oversized 56mm objective lens provides the light-gathering capability required to ensure views remain bright and clear in low light conditions or when observing targets at long distances at maximum magnification
  • Index-matched Hi-Lume multiple anti-reflection coatings are specifically formulated for the lens glass to increase light transmission and deliver bright and clear high-contrast images with limited distortion and accurate color rendition
  • 23' field of view at 100 yards on 5.5x power, 4.2' on 18x
  • Up to 4" maximum eye relief presents a comfortable eye box
  • Exceptional 8.6mm exit pupil on 5.5x, 1.8mm on 30x
SCR 2 MIL Reticle Details
  • "Special Competition Reticle" (SCR) is optimized for tactical and competition shooting
  • First (front) focal plane placement: When magnification is adjusted, the reticle size changes proportionally, so subtension values remain accurate at all powers
  • Cascading "tree" style design for shot tracking and ranging
  • Offers a quick and accurate way of compensating for both distance and wind
  • Provides a balance between functionality without being overly cluttered
  • 0.2 MRAD graduations
  • Compatible with all calibers
Use and Handling

MAD Turret System:

  • Modular Adjustment Dial (MAD) System lets user add custom low-profile tactical knobs with laser-etched markings that perfectly match the trajectory of any ammunition and load
