Burris RT-25 5-25X 56mm Riflescope

Burris RT-25 5-25X 56mm Riflescope

The new Burris RT-25 riflescope is designed to give shooters an entry-level precision-built scope for long-range competition at a reduced price. Its features include a front focal plane SCR 2 mil-dot reticle with precise 1/10 mil and zero click stop turrets, side parallax adjustment, and a power throw lever that can be mounted anywhere on the power ring. The SCR 2 reticle in the RT-25 scope has 65 MOA of elevation travel and 65 MOA of windage travel.

The scope uses a rugged 30mm nitrogen-filled tube and is waterproof, shockproof, and fogproof. Like all Burris scopes, it can handle recoil from any direction, making it a great choice for use on high-quality match airguns. Also like other Burris scopes, the RT-25 is covered by the company’s Forever Warranty.

The RT-25 offers 3.3 to 3.6 inches of eye relief, is 14.3 inches long, and weighs 24.8 ounces. Field of view at 100 yards is 22.5 feet on 5X and 4.5 feet on 25X. The exit pupil range is 8mm to 2.2mm.

The SCR 2 reticle is an mRad-based “tree-style” reticle that incorporates hashmarks for range and windage estimation in a pattern that is not overly complicated and does not obscure too much of the target.
Mating the SCR 2 reticle (as well as many of Burris’s other excellent reticles) to your specific ammunition in your specific
environment is relatively easy by using Burris’s new Ballistics Services web tool at https://ballistics.burrisoptics.com.


The RT-25 5-25X 56mm riflescope is a fine scope that’s reasonably priced.
