Re: Burris Eliminator III...For Extreme Long-Range Shooting

Thing is, Burris customer service sucks. I wrote a letter to Rob Siemers not long ago and the d-bag never had the professionalism to respond. Buy up suckers, just hope you don't have a problem with their junk...

They don't say if the dots are mils or moa or what, not that it matters. I don't see where it says how fine the vertical dot resolution is. The old one only had about ten dots. Ok for a few hundred yards on large game.
Great comments. I don't see how just MV and BC would work (no bullet weight?), but regardless the eliminator lets you input your actual drop in inches. Either calculated or better yet via actual range testing. So nope, you don't have to pick your cartridge from a list. You punch in your 500 yard drop (100 yard zero) and BC.

No idea what the dot resolution is. The old Eliminator was 0.33 MOA.
70 vertical dots per Burris HQ. Just got off the phone with them.

Of course if they do get it all the necessary corrections automated hunting will become no more of a sport than killing cattle with a hammer in a feed lot.
Well everyone has to decide what's sporting to them. I know a few guys here have 30+ lb bench rifles on permanent benches in blinds overlooking feed lots.
