Here's my dilemma, I have a Burris Fullfield II, and a Brunton Echo, both are 3-9 x 40. I know the Burris is a quality scope, sturdy, and will do me fine.
What little I can find of the Brunton scope says it is probably good quality, and I have definitely been impressed with other Brunton optics that I own. I don't know which one I want to mount on my Rem 700 30-06. I want the nicer one on my '06 and the other one will go on my .338wm.
If they both had about the same image quality when looking through them, I would easily pick the Burris over the Brunton because of their reputation, and I would feel more comfortable in it's durability. But they don't, the Brunton clearly is superior in naked eye optics, the image seems larger, it is brighter, the color is better, and the Brunton ballistic reticle is nicer than the Burris BDC reticle.
This is my dilemma, any suggestions or imput would be much appreciated.
Here's a link to the Brunton if anyone is interested:
picked it up for amazingly cheap from Natchez.
