    Burris Eliminator 3 vs rangefinding binos a good scope setup and a ballistics program

    Not considering the Burris but what are peoples thoughts?

    I'm having a "discussion" with a fella in regards to this and he reckons Burris are the ducks guts and with it regardless of conditions can shoot 9 out of 10 dinner plates at 700 m. I find it hard to believe but just say it's true.

    I think something that is trying to cram in a whole lot of function into one device can't be as good as highly engineered products each designed for a specific purpose.

    Thoughts?

    I don't see why he wouldn't in good conditions.
    It eliminates some thinking about range and elevation which as anyone who shoots long range will tell you is the easy bit. Wind estimation and corrections is the hard bit and the scope isn't goin to help you there.

    My thoughts are it could shoot a diner plate at 1000m 10/10 times I still wouldn't want the ugly fuckers on my rifle

    They basically take the science and understanding out of long range shooting but as vc says they dont help with wind calls which is where you're misses are going to come from if you have a relatively consistant load, will minimise vertical

    Do bino's and range finders help with windage?

    How do you think the scope will feel when it see's what's holding the rifle

    Nope.

    But by using a shooting application you can physically enter in data direction estimated speed ect and get a more visual result and reading imo.
    Also I no the old burris scopes were very limited to what data you csn put in with regards to velocity bc zero ect, not sure what the new model is like

    The separate components are easier to use for a number of firearms. Say you want to figure out what will work for your mate and his rifle, 'You take this one mate.' If you have a couple of rifles in your livery it will work for all of them without needing to re-zero and re-enter base data.

    Nah ...you gotta have a few clues to understand my higher level of intelligence sometimes!!
    You basically said "it takes the understanding out of long range shooting and then in the next post you go into a complicated put some shit into this program and it will tell you what to do!

    It's funny how offended some people get if someone else doesn't like or has a differing opinion on something that they personally own. Happened in the last Burris eliminator thread as well.

    Maybe it's the people who want to talk about Burris.
