Whether you’re venturing out to The Rockies for the first time, want a greater sense of security when you’re out in the woods, or just want to carry one less thing, the Burris 4-16×50 Eliminator® III Laserscope™ is the sophisticated investment that’s worth making. In our opinion, Burris was the first brand to effectively incorporate a laser rangefinder in their riflescope. Both accurate and intuitive, it’s a must have for anyone who wants to eliminate the guesswork that normally sends hunters home empty-handed.
So if you’re interested in making your shots easier and more effective, keep reading to learn how and why this Burris product gets it right.
Installed near the objective, this rangefinder allows you to range your target without carrying additional equipment. It can range out to over 1,200 yards with a reflective target and over 750 yards with a non-reflective target.
Plus, the new model includes a remote cable switch, which makes the activation even easier.
The internal hardware within this scope does all your laser rangefinding for you. By incorporating a ballistic calculator and an inclinometer within the scope, this piece does essentially everything for you except pull the trigger.
The ballistic calculator handles all the trigonometry behind shooting. Its customized trajectory compensation calculates the perfect holdover at your exact distance and will project a red dot on your reticle after determining your perfect position. In order to do this, program your cartridge ballistics information, push the button and hold while it activates your rangefinder and identifies distances, and then it will provide a red holdover dot on your reticle. The dot compensates for value drop-in and determines where you bullet will land. This compensation works on any magnification, so it’s always available.
Perfect for hunters going out west, the inclinometer adjusts for angle on any downhill or uphill shots. This not only provides greater accuracy during tricky shots, but also saves time adjusting for elevation while out shooting. Considering some dangerous predators are out in these elevated regions, it’s important to maximize all the time you can. The inclinometer makes those quick shots easy and efficient.
This scope features a fast focus eyepiece that allows users to sharpen and clarify the reticle easily and effectively. This eyepiece is larger than the average eyepiece to provide you with a generous field of view. At 100 yards on full power, you get a field of view of 26 feet wide and on maximum magnification you get approximately 7 feet of view. Its high-quality glass provides exceptional brightness and clarity, eliminating glare and improving your success rate.
The 4-16 model features an advanced X96 reticle, which illuminates your perfect shot. This reticle features head-up information and Burris has integrated technology to identify yards while you’re making your shot. To use the grid on the reticle, it’s crucial to be on 15 power for ultimate accuracy.
The grid itself has lines from 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock, from 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock, and from 12 o’clock to 9 o’clock. From 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock and 12 o’clock to 9 o’clock, there are graduated lines as well. Beneath those graduations, there is a windage tree reticle with multiple dots that helps determine windage and combats crosswind, which can affect the placement of your shot.
Wind and Elevation Turrets
The wind and elevation turrets have quarter-click value adjustments for easy modification and after locating true zero, there’s little adjustment that needs to be made on these turrets since your rangefinder will cover everything else.
This side focus corrects for parallax from 50 yards to infinity.
Unlike other riflescopes, this scope can’t be attached using traditional rings. To accommodate the additional features, this scope is larger in size and will require a multi-slot picatinny rail base to attach to your weapon. Burris provides clamps that will fix the Eliminator directly to the base and the top of your weapon.
This scope is powered by a CR123A battery, which is readily available at drugstores and grocery stores, and lasts approximately 5,000 cycles.
For everything this product offers, it comes at a great value. Considering standard riflescopes of this caliber normally value around $1300 to $1500, and rangefinders of this quality normally value around $900 on their own, this scope is a steal for combining the two in one product.
The Burris 4-16×50 Eliminator® III Laserscope™ takes the guesswork out of tricky shots in new areas, so you’re coming home with as much as possible. For more information on this product visit our site or give us a call at 972-SCOPE-IT.
