Burris Introduces RT-8 Riflescope

Burris Introduces RT-8 Riflescope

Burris Optics expands its 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 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.

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.

Guns & Ammo TV: Wheelgun vs. Pistol

In this segment of “Pros vs. Joes,” we put competitive shooter and author James Tarr against Guns & Ammo TV cameraman Nathan Wilt. With handguns, they see who can knock down plates the fastest on two Revolution Targets Heavy Duty Plate Racks. Here's the catch: Tarr has to use a Colt King Cobra in .357 Mag. while Wilt shoots a Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 in 9mm.

Quality. Art. Design. History. Precision. Innovation. Family. Passion. Love. These words come to my mind when describing anything Italian, and the same is true for a product bearing the name “Benelli.”

Guns & Ammo TV: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. .375 H&H

The 6.5 Creedmoor and the .375 H&H are almost complete opposites, or are they? The 6.5 Creedmoor is a newer and popular cartridge that transcends long-range precision rifle shooting and hunting big game. The .375 H&H is more than a century old, but still a popular and versatile choice for hunting big and dangerous game. For this shoot, Pro Tom Beckstrand, former U.S. Army Special Operations officer and sniper team leader, faces off against Guns & Ammo TV cameraman Ben LaLonde in a challenge that highlights the differences between these two cartridges.
