Re: Cold Bore Challenge

Ok so it doesn't actually read the wind. You still need to do that and then the scope just tells you how many dots to hold for what the wind is actually blowing.

    Yes I was being sarcastic. I just read the posts Clayne and whatever his name from Idaho was and they make it sound like the E3 shoots the rifle for you. I think it's a pretty sweet set up and it has it's limitations just like any other scope and rangefinder.

    It has a special meter that knows when the wind is just right downrange. You have to click your heels together to tell it when you want to hurry up and shoot. Its the only way to go at long range....

    Yeah I don't think I would of got it if I didn't get it for $950. I figured at $950 I would be paying more for a decent scope and a rangefinder. So far I am happy with it. I think it will be great for hunting purposes.
