GREELEY, Colo.-(Ammoland.com)- Designed for speed and accuracy at short to mid ranges Burris Optics expands its widely popular RT line of riflescopes with the RT-8x24mm. Competition shooters and hunters can now combine fast target acquisition at close range with true both-eyes-open 1x magnification and extremely accurate mid-range shooting with 8x magnification and 600 yards of trajectory compensation.

High performance glass and multi-coated lenses provide excellent brightness, clarity and enhanced low light and anti-glare properties. The RT-8 is built with internal spring tensioned assemblies and rugged waterproofing to ensure a perfect zero in harsh environments such as getting tossed around in the back of a UTV or being slammed into a barrel at a shooting match.

Three competition-ready illuminated reticles in front, rear and dual focal plane models allow shooters to pick the right setup for their shooting needs. The Ballistic AR™, Ballistic Circle Dot and Ballistic CQ Mil are ideal for 5.56 and .223 ammunition out to 600 yards.

An adjustable integrated throw lever allows rapid and accurate magnification changes. Operators can affix the lever at any point on the magnification ring. Low profile windage and elevation knobs can be finger adjusted at ½ MOA per click.

Available soon at local Burris dealers.
