Camo rifle scopes come in a lot of different brands. Today I am going to be looking at one from Burris. Actually there are three scope reviews, the camo is the Burris 200371 predator quest camo rifle scope. 4.5-14X42mm, Ballistic, Plex E1, Camo with a 1-inch tube. This product is manufactured in Philippines.
For a poor man like me it carries a pretty hefty price tag at $347.61. The Burris 4.5-14-42 is a very good camo rifle scope though. I have found that out by looking at other buyer’s comments. Burris takes pride in their optics and they are very hard to beat in that line. They stand behind their scope without any problems.

About the Reticle
The reticle is made with the ability to compensate for wind drift and movement. Although the scope is not illuminated, the ballistic plex e1 reticle takes care of the biggest challenges in long distance shooting. The reticle helps determine the hold-over at long distance. Also, it helps determine the hold-off for wind drift.
How Does a Scope Help With That?
*Hash marks on lower vertical cross-hair are calibrated for dead-on aiming from 100 to 500 yards. For nearly any big-game hunting cartridge.
*Trajectory-compensating technology and cascading dots help you quickly and easily adjust for wind.
*Dots represent hold off for a 10 m.p.h. crosswind (+/- 1.5 in. at 400 yards.).
*You adjust for 5 or 20 m.p.h. crosswind by halving or doubling the dot distance.
*Simple, accurate, and easy to use.
You can buy it on Amazon.
The Camo Rifle Scope’s Color
The camo does not match mossy oak brush. It is max1 which is a little different from the brush. Max1 camo is more of a green color.
That doesn’t really concern me any though. I’ve slipped around in the woods with tree limbs stuck down my shirt and in my pants pockets. I started hunting turkeys when I was around 12 and I’m 60 now. Back then I had to learn to make do with what I had handy.
It worked good, I killed my 2 turkeys every season back then. I backed up into a bush one morning and another hunter walked up. He sat down within 10 feet of me for 45 minutes, got up and walked off and never did know I was there. It amazes me to watch how much money kids spend to turkey hunt now days.
Though some of their scopes come with the moa adjustments, this scope doesn’t come with them.
This scope does not come with scope ring mounts. You would have to order them separate or get them at wally world. I mentioned earlier I would have to find the cheaper ones.
The Burris 200370 comes with side focus but not objective focus.
This scope is supposed to take the recoil of the higher powered rifles. A 30-06 or 7mag is not supposed to cause it to be knocked off center.
The Difference Between 2 Of the Burris Scopes
What is the difference between item 200370 and item 200338? I didn’t find either of these in the camo color. Both are black but some vinyl camo tape would take care of that. Maybe some rubber bands and leaves too. 🙂

I am going to save my money and get one. My son has a 22-250 with a bull barrel on it. He doesn’t like to carry it around because it weighs a ton. I usually get it for deer season because I set out here and watch the fields. I’ve got some 450 – 500 yard shots out here and one of those would be nice to have.
We have a lot of coyotes and bobcats around here too. Groundhogs all through the summer. Yep I’m gonna get one.
Considering all the information I went through and all the buyer feedback I read any of these three have to be a top-notch scope.
I am sure there are better ones out there. I haven’t looked enough to start naming other brands yet. Bushnell is about all I have ever owned. I do know that you can buy them pretty cheap. I also know that I have gone thru a lot of them in my lifetime. Usually you are better off spending a little more for quality products.
I’ve never had a Bushnell that I would trust on a 500 yard shot. I am sure that by now they are making some good ones. Actually they would have to be to keep up with the competition.
