The New Eliminator Laserscope from Burris Optics is to me a sight to behold(haha I made a pun). Holding over has transformed from an estimate to an exact science.
This scope ranges your target ( Burris claims it reads out to 550yds on a deer & 800 yards on a reflective surface) it then illuminates a small red dot on the elevation post to give you an exact point of aim.
How does this work?
Good question, It works by inputting two key data points:
1) Are you sighted in at 100 or 200yds
2) Enter in the drop of your projectile at 500yards in inches.
Now the scope will have saved these variables and everytime you range your shot it will give you a red dot on the crosshairs as a point of aim.
Press the trigger and you should have yourself a dead feral!
I have to say this to me is really exciting, it will make shooting longer distances a lot easier. I know some of you may say the challenge is not there but really you will still have to deal with wind drift and its no different from knowing how to use a mil-dot or ballistic-type reticle.
This scope appears to be only available in a 4-12x42mm model at the moment and battery life is claimed to be 1100 cycles.
The big question:
Will I be ordering one of these scopes? I think I will. Though at 4-12×42 I am still wondering whether I sacrifice the magnification for the added functionality on either my 243 or 223 varminter…. Decisions Decisions… If you were to buy one what rifle would you put it on? Leave a comment and let me know..
Thanks to Dangaff from AusVarmint for the heads up on this one.
