Comparing Rangefinding scopes

Hi,I am new here and would like to know if anyone has compared the rangefinding riflescopes ?
I have read a little about the Burris Eliminator but nothing about the Bushnell or Nikon scopes.
Technical specs are fine but would really like in the field hands on experience with them.
Thanks
Craig

The only one that I've use in the field is the eliminator. I shot the III recently and I was putting consistent hits on steel out to 700 with a tikka tactical in .223.

Re: Comparing Rangefinding scopes

I have been curious about these as well. The best one I personally have seen was the Swaro LRS, LRF, LPS, or something like that. I cant remember for sure. It was awesome. Zeiss now makes one and I looked through it and amazing is the only way to describe the scope and it's price.

Right now i am trying to sort out if the Eliminator II will suffice instead of the Eliminator III because of price.
thanks

Nothing wrong with the II. A little shorter range capability and no windage holds is what you're giving up. The 4-12 with the X-98 works on any magnification which is a plus in my opinion.

Pretty good deals here:

How good is the optics quality on these? Interested in the Eliminator 3.

Optically it's solid. It's not swaro z6 or zeiss diavari quality but it's solid in my opinion. Taking into consideration the entire package (optical quality, build quality, fit and finish, electronics), it's priced correctly (again my opinion).
