Burris Fullfield E1 Rifle Scope Review

A popular hunting rifle scope over the years has been Burris' Fullfield II series of rifle scopes. For 2011, Burris, based in Greeley Colorado, has made significant upgrades to the Fullfield II scope line. This review will take a look at the new E1 in a 3x-9x-40mm scope and compare it to the standard Fullfield II.

Currently Burris is offering the new E1 series in four power combinations: 2x-7x-35mm, 3x-9x-40mm, 3x-9x-50mm, and 4.5x-14x-42mm. This covers nearly all of the power variations available in the standard Fullfield II except it leaves out the 6.5x-20x-50mm.

The E1 is named after the new “Enhanced” Ballistic Plex reticle. The original Ballistic Plex offered bullet drop compensation for a variety of cartridges and the new E1 offers the same ballistic fit, but enhances it with 10 MPH crosswind dots on either side of each of the ballistic cross hatches. If you already own a Ballistic Plex reticle, you will find the E1 matches up identically with your current setup, and simply gives a cross wind gauge. Each crosswind dot is ¼ of a MOA or ¼ of an inch at 100 yards, which can be used to determine distance to a object of a known size.

The new E1 also sports an improved turret system. Burris increased the turret cap cover size and knurled them with large groves to make it easy to get the turret covers on and off. The turret itself is also larger with an improved grip. Like the standard Fullfield II, the click adjustments are still ¼ inch at 100 yards or ¼ MOA per click. The new turrets have 68 clicks in one revolution of the turret which translates to 17 inches of movement at 100 yards.

The final improvement to the Fullfield II is moving the magnification adjustment out of the eye piece and including it as a separate power adjustment ring that rotates freely from the body of the scope and the eye piece. This design is more common in a lot of scopes on the market and while for the most part it is a minor issue, those that use an eye piece scope cap cover will immediately notice the benefit of the power adjustment ring. When using a scope cap cover on a standard Fullfield II, adjusting the magnification would cause the scope cap cover to rotate, perhaps out of alignment with the quick release tabs on the cover.

The optics of the E1 are the same as the standard Fullfield II which are known for their light transmission, brightness, and clarity. The new E1 in 3x-9x-40mm will have a street price of about $200, which is approximately $20 more than the standard Fullfield II in the same power and objective size.

We only have a few minor criticisms of the scope. First, our review model did not include a sheet explaining what the dots represented in terms of crosswind. However this information could be quickly found on Burris' website . The other issue is that the new turret system does not appear to be easily removable to re-zero the turret after sighting in. This isn't a show stopper though considering the cost of the scope and the fact that mo...
