Burris Eliminator.....opinions please
 
I have a 300 wby mag and I want a new scope for it. I like the idea of range finder and scope but don't know anyone with one. Maybe that's my answer?

Has anyone used one of these or know anything about them?

My advice is to get a good scope and a separate range finder.

I'm thinking vortex viper 2.5-10x44. Or the zeiss conquest rapid z 600. If I go standard scope?

Zeiss makes very nice scopes.:)

Stay w/ a standard scope. Here in NH they are a no go.

I know Bushnell just came out with a Rangefinder Scope to go up against the Burris Eliminator, but I don't know of anybody who has one, to give an honest assessment about them.
However, for around the 800-$900 for these Scopes, I would just get a great $500 scope, w/BDC that will last a Lifetime, and get a separate Rangefinder for $300 and spend the last $100 on Ammo(if you can find it) to play with, but that's me.

the draw back is that the FOV is so small in a scope that it is not very effective as a range finder. Plus when you take two very specialized items like this and combine them what you get is something that can do two thing's OK but not good or great.

Your best bet is to get a range finder and a scope.

Here is my Range finder. a Leica 1000-R CRF (Compact Range Finder). It's small light weight and easy to carry and use. PLUS you are getting Leica quality glass......

+1 on that Leica rangefinder. As good as it gets.

I got the 1600 because I was planning on getting a .338 LaPua. The gunsmith/good friend that was going to build it passed away, so that plan went with him.

If I had known then what I know now, I would have bought the same one you have.
