Using the Burris Veracity PH while hunting South African Plains Game

We simply returned from a tremendous journey throughout the pond the place we had been searching plains recreation within the Limpopo province of South Africa.  As all the time, Africa didn’t disappoint, and we had been capable of put some new gear from some superb manufacturers by means of the gauntlet that’s Africa.  Sizzling, dry, scorching, dusty, scorching, rugged, scorching, rocky, scorching….all the right parts to check how a product will truly maintain up in actual world discipline conditions.  Did I point out it was scorching?

Earlier this yr at SHOT Present, Burris launched the all-new Veracity PH and I couldn’t wait to get it within the discipline and test it out.  We had been in a position to make use of it instantly following the launch on an Axis deer seek out in Texas however that was only a dry run for the true check we had in thoughts, our journey to Africa.

Africa could be an ideal setting to make the most of and showcase precisely what the Veracity PH was designed to do, and that’s to dial to precise distances in a matter of seconds when pursuing recreation.  The character of searching in Africa shouldn’t be too dissimilar to that of a Western US hunt though the panorama and components are a fairly a bit completely different.  Spot and stalk is probably the most profitable technique of searching in Africa and never in contrast to searching Elk or Mule deer out West, you by no means actually understand how shut or how distant recreation goes to seem.

That’s the great thing about the Veracity PH, after getting downloaded the Burris join app, loaded all of your rifle and ballistic information and zeroed the rifle you’re all set to instantly begin searching with the boldness of having the ability to shoot at 50 to 500 yards and past.  In a standard long-distance searching scenario, you would need to discover the sport, vary the sport, determine ballistic information from an app or dope card, then dial your turret primarily based on distance after which execute your shot.  Granted different folks’s processes might fluctuate however there are a number of steps that simply take up invaluable time and can’t be skipped.

With the PH you merely must vary the goal, dial to that precise distance as displayed within the HUD (Heads Up Show) throughout the scope and execute the shot.  That is such a recreation changer, particularly on spot and stalk hunts the place you could possibly come round a nook and have an animal standing at 50 yards or you could possibly spot one thing at 700 yards.  You may be amazed at how a lot sooner you’ll be able to setup and execute your shot with the Veracity PH.  The scope carried out flawlessly, held zero the whole time regardless of being jostled about by the Land Cruiser and all the time dialed completely when it got here time to shoot.  I shot a complete of 5 animals whereas I used to be there, and the distances assorted from 30 yards all the best way out to a number of hundred and every little thing in between.  That’s the reason the PH is so good for any such hunt.  There are many different variables you should fear about when stalking recreation.  When the time involves shoot an all you should do is get an correct vary and dial to that quantity it makes the entire course of quite a bit easier.

The Veracity PH are available in a 4-20×50 configuration which is ideal for something up shut and out to prolonged ranges.  It has a 30mm tube and a 50mm goal to permit for a ton of sunshine transmission and options the PEK (programmable Elevation Knob).  “The PEK (Programmable Elevation Knob) system offers final dialling precision. After coming into info into the app, hunters can simply use the PEK system to dial in elevation. This method combines a digital sensor with a click-less mechanical elevation turret for final accuracy right down to 1/10 MOA. Utilizing the ballistics calculator from the app with digital elevation turrets, the Veracity PH’s PEK system makes dialling to distance simpler than ever with peak velocity, precision and efficiency.”

That is really a house run from Burris, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve on the horizon!  I’ve stated it earlier than, and I’ll say it once more I feel they’re main the trade in expertise and efficiency and proceed to make high quality merchandise that simply flat out work and make sense!  For extra info on the Veracity PH or any of Burris’ different nice merchandise head on over to and test them out.
