    You will learn more and thus become more capable with the rangefinder option. Would be more complicated but worth it I reckon.

    Plus they look like a submarine is on top of your rifle.

    They are shit hot, I put one on my Rifle and it was awesome in Ozzie for destroying goats in the open areas. Goats can move fast and tend to get out of range fairly quickly but can still be seen and this scope was the fastest method I know to range in real quick and keep bombing the buggers. I say if you want it, go get it, the only people who will tell you they are no good, are the ones that have never used one, they are simple to set up ..... shoot in at 100 yards fire a shot at 500 yards and set the range finder, job done the Scope is now set for anything up to 500 yards with the push of a button

    Also it will only be good for one rifle, whereas a rangefinder can be used with any rifle and in other situations. Far more versitile. Why not spend the $2.5k (or whatever they are worth thses days) and buy a decent rangefinder (Leica) then either upgrade your scope to a VX3 or something, or even get a nice pair of binoculars (if you don't have some already).

    You're supposed to snort it up, not the reverse

    So is any scope only good on one rifle!!! until it is resighted. Mine is only an opinion from someone who has used one

    You completely miss my point. Don't get pissy trying to defend your purchase of one. Yes they work, but they are heavy, cumbersome and for the money I feel you are better off buying the two seperately, $2.5k would get you a pretty darn good scope / rangefinder combo.

    What i am saying is that you will only have rangefinding capabilities with the rifle that has the burris eliminator scope on it. So what happens if/when you take a different rifle out hunting??? No range finder then...

    I use my handheld range finder for a number of tasks, not an easy (or safe) thing to do wielding a rifle around pointing it at different things. just to get a measurement.

    Hardly defending my purchase of one that I got issued with Dude, disagreeing with you doesn't mean I'm getting "pissy" and defensive...that would be you, because someone dared to disagree with your opinion and I do take your point re. the range finder

    I am happy for people to disagree with me mate (just ask my wife ), as long as there is a valid point. Your earlier post just assumed (wrongly) that I have never used one. Maybe I read an undertone that was not there, I apologise.

    So, about those submarines...

    I think the rangefinder and dope the scope is much more versatile, Should be more accurate but has the potential to make a mess of it aswell.
