EU - Ballistic Laserscope III LaserScope 3-12x44mm

Find a Dealer

Not everyone needs 16x magnification. The Ballistic Laserscope III in 3-12x variety offers the same features and programming as the model #200116 4-16x version, in a lighter, more compact version.

Starting at 3x magnification will provide a wider field-of-view, making it easier to quickly find your target. Having the 12 times zoom allows quickly zooming in close enough for most hunters in most situations.

There is no remote cable option for the 3-12x version, and this model is NOT compatible with low-velocity rounds such as subsonic and rimfire.

Laser Range Finding: Eliminator LaserScope
  • Sleek, ergonomic design
  • Features the sophisticated X96 Reticle
  • Built-in rangefinder allows you to range your target without carrying additional equipment
  • Laser range capability out to 1,200-plus yds. with reflective target, 750-plus yds. with non-reflective target
  • Customized trajectory compensation calculates the perfect holdover at your exact distance; program your cartridge’s ballistics information, push a button, and a bright-red, illuminated dot signifies your new aiming point within seconds
  • Trajectory compensation works on any power
  • Programming cartridge information is easy as setting an alarm clock
  • Programming requires drop number at 750 yds. and ballistic coefficient for extreme accuracy at extreme ranges
  • Programming works with centerfire rifles only
  • Range your target in yards or meters—your choice
  • Reticle displays a 10 m.p.h. wind value to indicate wind hold-off for your specific cartridge at the indicated range to target
  • Wind Value represents how many dots to hold into the wind for a 10 m.p.h. crosswind; the shooter estimates actual wind speed and uses the Wind Value as a guide to determine the number of dots to hold into the wind
  • Integrated inclinometer adjusts for any angle on uphill or downhill shots, for greater accuracy
  • Strong, low mounting with its own bases—no rings needed
  • Mounts easily on any Weaver or Picatinny base
  • High-grade optical glass provides excellent brightness and clarity with lasting durability
  • Quality, precision-ground lenses are larger than comparable scopes, for better light transmission
  • Index-matched, Hi-Lume® multicoating aids in low-light performance and glare elimination, increasing your success rate
  • A double, internal spring-tension system allows the scope to hold zero through shock, recoil, and vibrations
  • Positive, steel-on-steel adjustments ensure repeatable accuracy
  • Uses 1 CR123A battery that lasts through 5,000 range cycles
  • Parallax adjustment from 50 yds. to infinity
  • Guaranteed by the Burris Forever Warranty™

1.    Can I use rimfire or subsonic ammo?

Yes with item 200119. No with items 200120 and 200116.

Only the latest model Eliminator III will work with rimfire or subsonic ammo.  When the scope was redesigned to allow a remote cable, it was also updated with additional memory. This allows a wider range of ammunition including most rimfire, and subsonic such as .22LR, .17HMR, .300BLK and 7.62x39.

Item number 200120 and 200116 are not compatible with rimfire or subsonic, as the rounds drop too quickly and fall outside the software limits.


2.    Why am I having problems ranging?

The Eliminator III will NOT range through windows, screens, or camo netting. It needs an unobstructed path for the beam to travel. The Eliminator scope uses an infrared beam to range targets. The beam has to pass through the objective lenses and several other layers inside the scope in order to range a target. It is especially important to keep your objective lens clean. We recommend rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, or a lens cleaner to ensure the beam has a clear path of travel. DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia, as this will strip the protective coatings from your lens.


3.    Why do I have trouble longer distances?

The Eliminator III scope will range non-reflective targets to approx. 750 yards, and reflective targets out to approx. 1200 yards. Non-reflective targets include animals, trees, bushes, etc. Reflective would be light colored/reflective metallic objects like targets, glass, automobiles, etc. Black targets and animals are NOT reflective enough at longer distances.

Like all rangefinders, the Eliminator will be affected by weather and ambient. It will be more difficult to range in heavy rain, snow, or fog as they can impede the beam.


4.    What if my firearm has a canted rail?

The Eliminator comes with an accessory box, which includes 3 shims that will remove cant from your setup. They are labeled A, B and C.

A=10 MOA B=20 MOA C=30 MOA


5.    What size rings do I need?

None.  The Eliminator mounts to any picatinny rail using supplied picatinny clamps. These clamps will come with your scope: all you need to provide is the rail.

6.    Will I have enough time to take a shot when I range a target?

The Eliminator has a display that will stay active for 90 seconds. Your range will disappear sooner, but your aiming point will remain for 90 seconds.

7.    What is the torque spec for the base clamps?

50 inch pounds.

EU - Ballistic Laserscope III LaserScope 3-12x44mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 200.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tracking Matched with an AR10 308,few shots consistent tracking right out of the box! Havnt had the oppertunity for long range shooting yet, but this scope showing its built properly be for i had even touched the electronics. The electronics portion very simple to figure out. From what i can tell im excited to get out and try my luck with the longer ranges. My suggestion is read the 10pages of the owners manual (15 min of reading) take the time to know how your bullet acts and velocity, elevation makea a difference also! Call the tech line and the people are awesome. In short without long range training im very confident

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Range it, breathe, shoot. Mountains of Western North Carolina, 3770 ft altitude. Hunting from a plateau overlooking 4 other fields. 4 deer arrive at 15 minutes before close of legal daylight. Range at 397 yards shooting from a steady rest, 150 ft elevation drop, no wind to speak of. AR-10, 20" BBL and Hornady 165 SST cartridges. 1 shot, the deer finished 20 yards away. 2 deer scatter, 1 remained. Re-ranged at 370 yds, 1 shot, dropped in place. I thank the scope's push-button capability for follow-up efficiency and accurate trajectory compensation. I highly recommend this scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations I mounted the Eliminator III on my new 300RUM and went to the range. The scope zeroed quickly and consistently at 100 and the ballistic table included with the scope provided the correct drop and ballistic coefficient for my specific ammo. I shot accurately out to 500yds. The scope easily ranged targets past 1000 yds. but 500 is my max for ethical hunting. Entering the drop number and BC is much easier than I expected. Fast forward to Wyoming in October. I used the instructions provided to adjust my drop number and BC for the 6,000 ft. change in elevation from my home in TN to Cody, WY. After confirming that the adjustment was dead on we went to the field. I harvested an antelope at 407 and a mule deer at 112. Both shots were right behind the shoulder. I simply pushed the button and the scope provided the correct holdover dot. Using a separate range finder, counting mill dots or clicks and then acquire the target takes time that you often don't have in a hunting situation. The Eliminator III eliminates those steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and accurate Zeroed the scope at 100 after entering my ammunition information. Ranged a small steel plate at 327 yards, adjusted to the point the Eliminator III displayed and pulled the trigger. Dead center shot within a few seconds. No fiddling back and forth with a range finder, no turret adjustments, just tap, adjust, shoot. Quite often a person's window of time for the shot on game is available but for a few precious seconds after weeks worth of work. With any other system, the animal has time to disappear or get turned. Several times I've taken game there is not time for anything BUT what only the Eliminator III can provide. The mount is more solid than any scope made, rail to rail. There's zero chance of knocking it out of alignment. The optics are distortion free. The reticle is awesome. If you can read your wind, the reticle will get you on target. I'm not kidding, if you value your hunt, you'll value this scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carefully selected purchase. The quality of this scope is quite good! I mounted it on the rail and tested at 100 yards. I was 30 inches low. I rechecked the mount and discovered an excessive gap at the front of the mount. This was due to the ceracoat on the rail. I dressed the high spot out and remounted the scope. On steel at 100 yards first shot! zeroed at 100 and the target pictured is at 751 yards in a crosswind. This was my first shot at 751 yards. EVER. This will only get better. The pressure required to activate the ranging button is high enough that it will throw you off at distance. Need to be lower of adjustable. The ballistic drop cheat sheet is far from comprehensive . Burris needs to continue to add to the list..(hint) Aguila 7.62x51 fmjbt. I consider this a lifetime purchase. You wont be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meeting the Burris Eliminator III Laser Scope 4-16 Two years ago (March 3, 2017), my son took me out to the rifle range and let me try out his Burris - Eliminator III Laser Scope 4-16x50mm. He said to try the 3" circle metal target at 230 yards. I zeroed in, squeezed the trigger and bing! Hit the target on my first shot. Now, my son said, try the same target at 425 yards. Aimed, squeezed and bing! Everyone around us said, YOU HIT IT! First time I ever hit a target at that range on the first shot! I was sold on that scope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Received my new Burris Eliminator 111 scope Rushed to the range, trusted my luck 20mph cross wind blowing. Shot 1&2 cleaned my barrel out, adjusted scope 3 MOA up and two right. Placed shots 3& 4 high. Adjusted MOA one click down. Well very impressed how easy it was placed the next 5 bullets all in the bull. Well done guys fantastic products, you have made an average shooter into a sniper !!!!!!!!! Keep up the good work. What would be nice is more magnification or a simple attachment to the current scopes and an App on app store to download to work out all bullet drops and BC's in the hunting terrain. Next is the HD spotting Scope. Love your Quality

Which extreme tactical mount is used for standard ar-15 picatinny and eliminator III?

Asked by: Barterbr0
The Eliminator will come with clamps to attach it to a picatinny rail. For an AR we recommend using a 1/4 inch picatinny riser, about 4 inches in length.

Can you reduce the illumination to a point that it is almost invisible? The reason I ask is that in low light even the minimum illumination is too bright..

Asked by: Griff
To lower the brightness on the Eliminator 3/4, power on the scope and press the down button until your desired brightness is selected.

Can this scope range a moving animal as in keep ranging until it stops for a fast shot or is it to slow?

Asked by: Stenbergotto
Each press of the range button will give you one range and holdover dot. You'll need to re-range the animal if it moves away from the previous yardage.

How does it hold up for during the twilight hours? I shoot a 300wby, how will the recoil affect the scope after serval shots for getting it zero in?

Asked by: ThomasD
It works well during common hunting hours. 300wby is no problem, they're rated to .50BMG.

I own the Eliminator III. The optics - low light and full zoom - subpar at best. The Eliminator IV you state: "Precision Optic. All lenses are fully multi-coated for sharp, crisp, edge-to-edge clarity." Is this the same optic that is on the III?

Asked by: Jim_28
All of the above is true. They use the best glass and coating we can get. The reason it might not appear as bright as a traditional scope is because there are 3 LCD screens directly in your field of view. It is one of the trade-offs to having a scope with a built in rangefinder and ballistic compensation.

Savage MSR10 in .308. Which Xtreme tactical base I’d need to properly mount it?  Bass Pro Shop didn’t have the recommended base, so I bought an off brand and I couldn’t zero the rifle.  I maxed the elevation and it still shoots significantly low. 

Asked by: Retired Mike
You'll need a 1/2" picatinny riser for that, approximately 4-5 inches long.
