Burris XTR 1-4, the black spec in the upper area appeared and after ~30 more rounds of .458 SOCOM it has not moved. It does not hinder the use of the scope but it is kinda annoying. I have contacted Burris and have what I need to send it in for repair but should I? If they are able to fix it(I'm guessing it's an easy fix) what's the odds that I would encounter problems with it in the future B/C it had to be "opened up"? Or anything else to consider by sending it in.

I could not live with that.

Same here.

Easy.

Send that shit back.

Beat it flat before you send it in. New scope.

I really hope they DON'T have to replace it.

I’d venture to guess they would just replace it, what’s wrong with that?

One problem that can happen is the speck will disappear during shipping  to Burris. They may look at it and determine that nothing is wrong and send it back to you, only to have the speck re-appear at some point in time. I would ask for a replacement if it was me.

Nothing if they have a new XTR just like mine sitting around to replace it with. I like that reticle better than their current offerings.

It’s going back today hopefully. Estimated turnaround was 3-6 weeks.

They'll take care of you.  A Burris Droptine on a CZ455 took a tumble and some internal debris like that popped around the reticle.  

They unsealed & cleaned it, re-purged it and sent it back - good as new.

Send it back.  No scope should have that with so few rounds.

Sent it back on Wed. The scope had more rounds than that through it, I was just saying after those rounds it did not move.

Not Bad.

Just got an email that they have repaired it and the return shipping info on it. Hopefully early next week it will be back in my hands.

From my last experiences with Burris (they handle Steiner repairs), I got a replaced scope back and it broke in the same way again. Then they replaced it again. Then I sold the replacement.

YMMV, but I'd start looking at a better optic for going on a 458.
