Burris Eliminator Scope Line Grows

Burris has announced new Eliminator scopes in addition to its original Eliminator, which provides accuracy to 800 yards and is useable on any gun with any load.  The new scopes range in function from basic rangefinder capabilities to enhanced ballistic programing abilities.

“The Eliminator’s split-second, automatic trajectory compensation technology has provided shooters with the invaluable ability to place ethical shots on target within seconds, which dramatically extends a shooter’s confidence and ability in the field,” said Rob Siemers, Burris Company general manager.

The flagship scope is the new Eliminator III with a new X96 reticle that will range at any magnification out to 1,200 yards complete with a windage compensation system.  This 4-16X50mm laserscope designed for centerfire rifles allows the shooter to control ballistic programming at the touch of a button–first entering the bullet drop at 750 yards for the specific load, then the ballistic coefficient (BC) for the specific cartridge.  The X96 reticle lends added accuracy for manual wind compensation.  A digital readout displays a 10 MPH wind value as a “Dot Value” for the cartridge at the indicated range.  All these elements have been perfected and are available at the touch of a button. MSRP is $1,499.

The Eliminator II 4-12X42mm laserscope with X38 reticle provides accurate distance calculation to 999 yards, regardless of magnification.  This scope is programmable for any gun or load and comes with inclination/declination compensation giving the shooter higher accuracy in hilly terrain.  A remote activation switch is included with this scope and can be attached to either the firearm’s forearm or the objective bell on the scope.  MSRP is $999.

The  Eliminator 3.5-10X40mm scope is accurate to 800 yards and can be programmed to work with any gun and load.  Ranging targets or trophies with this model requires magnification to be at 10x.  This laserscope is ideal for basic rangefinding.    MSRP is $799.

“With our latest additions to the Eliminator family, we now offer hunters and long-range shooters the best technology, electronics and optics at varying price points,” concluded Siemers.


Leupold Rangefinders Designed Specifically for Archers

Range estimation is critical when hunting —especially bowhunting. Leupold recently expanded its RX line of compact digital laser rangefinders for hunters and shooters with four new models: RX-800i, RX-800i TBR, RX-600i and, designed specifically for archers, RX-FullDraw.

“These new rangefinders are ideal for the serious bowhunter,” commented Pat Mundy, senior marketing manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.  “Their compact size and rugged construction make for easy and reliable use in the field, and they deliver the precision and accuracy necessary to make the most difficult shots considerably less daunting.”

At just over four inches in length and weighing seven ounces or less, each model fits in a shirt pocket, yet is packed with features that can help users confirm desired targets, shoot with confidence and boost their effective range.  Each model features DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy), Leupold’s exclusive next-generation rangefinder engine technology that delivers superior ranging speed and accuracy to within 1/2 yard out to 125 yards, regardless of target color.  In addition, DNA enhances ranging dependability against soft, non-reflective targets such as deer and trees.

The RX-800i, RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw also offer Trophy Scale, a feature that allows hunters to determine if the animal’s rack measures up to the desired spread size.  With Trophy Scale, users can instantly and accurately judge the width and/or height of the target after setting the preferred baseline measurement (between 10 and 60 inches).

To help ensure an accurate shot on that trophy animal, the RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw have Leupold’s proven True Ballistic Range (TBR) technology.  These units can automatically calculate the shot angle and provide the True Ballistic Range rather than the straight-line distance to the target.  With Trig, a new function of the RX-800i TBR, users can also determine the height or length of objects.

The RX-FullDraw’s TBR provides archers with accurate aiming ranges to 175 yards regardless of angle, and delivers line-of-sight readings out to 800 yards.  Its 5x magnification delivers an exceptionally wide field of view, allowing users to quickly acquire a target at closer distances.

Each of the four new models has a multicoated lens system and a new Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) that produce an image up to three times brighter than competitive rangefinders.  Other key features common to all models include actual 6x magnification (5x for FullDraw), fast-focus eyepiece with precision clicks, intuitive quick set menu, three user-selectable aiming reticles, and fold-down rubber eyecups that can accommodate users with or without eyeglasses.  Long eye relief helps make the new RX rangefinders comfortable and easy to use for eyeglass wearers.

Maximum range on reflective targets for the RX-800i, RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw is 800 yards. Each model is waterproof and built to withstand the rigors of extensive field use.  Rugged and weatherproof, the affordable RX-600i has a maximum range of 600 yards.
