Re: Burris Eliminator III Scope Review

That is certainly interesting technology, Im a target shooter at heart and an occasional hunter, so for target shooting that scope certainly takes all of the things I find most interesting out of the equation. Range, aim, shoot, and hit would get boring pretty fast for me.
But for the guy on a once in a lifetime hunt in some far off land or even a once in a lifetime draw tag in his backyard that scope may be the ticket. For instance my father in law applies every year trying to get bighorn sheep tag in Eastern Washington. this technology could easily make the differnece between filling that tag or going home empty handed.

Re: Burris Eliminator III Scope Review

I agree. I have the scope and with it comes a high quality rangefinder. I will be headed to southern Colorado for at least 10 days in the mountains and I want every edge I can get. I'm 56 and just had my second major low back surgery in March so I will need all the help I can get as this ain't no cakewalk hunt. 10 to 12 miles on horseback to remote camp and go from there. God I can't wait.

Will do and thanks for the wishes. I should have my stock back this week or next and once I get it back together I'll post some pics of it.

Re: Burris Eliminator III Scope Review

Just last week, I took a couple out for some LR shooting. She had never really used a rifle for distance shooting. She had first shot connections using the E-3 at 200, 300, 400 and 500 yards. Her first miss was at 600 yards, as some form issues were significant enough to cause a miss. But before long she was hitting out to 600 yards and then we came back at 400 and 500 yards and worked on form more and shots began to cluster.
The husband made consistent hits all the way to 1,000 yards with it.

This is the second lady I have done this with with success.
Here is some other experiences I have had with the E-3:

Yes I read your review before and that was the turning point for my decision to buy one of these scopes. I just can't wait to get things together and go shooting. Thanks for the review.

Re: Burris Eliminator III Scope Review

Thats great about being able to have a new/less experienced shooter get the confidence to go out on a hunt or even just get hits at the range to make shooting a sport that they enjoy.
Like I said the difficulty is what is appealing to me but this is great for those who want to just go out and be able to hunt without the added difficulty associated with ballistics, if the physical aspects of hunting are a huge hurdle adding complicated ballistics/math on top of it can easily be the diffenrence between someone going out and being succsessful as opposed to not going out at all because its just too much.

And then if you look what a soldier deals with, this technology if it were bulletproof and reliable could really give an edge to the guy risking his life for our country. So im glad to see this is availible even though its not something I will personally be interested in
