I can't say on the Timberline scopes. However I do own several Burris scopes and they are fine. Their FFII 3-9X40 is as good as any on the market save really high dollar models. I have only one of the 2-7 FFII's and it is aa good clear scope. I use it on my 1895 GS and the ballistiplex falls like this. Main is on at 100, first down on at 150, second is on at 175 and the third down on at 200. This with the Hornady 350FN at 1920fps.
I have about three of the 3-9X40's one is on my 338MX the others are on 30-06 and 280's. All are Ballistiplex models and I have the drop figured for each. Have taken a number of deer useing them.
Just my two bit's worth but I would go with a solid performer and buy Burris.
