Eliminator III LaserScope 4-16x50mm 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Great Scope!! My Browning A-bolt chambered in 7mm Rem Mag has had a Burris Signature 3x9-40 on it for 26yrs and is now serving duty on my fathers old Remington CDL 700 chambered in 7mm Rem Mag. In any case when it was time to replace it, I had completed nearly 2yrs of reading forums and reviews on the Burris Eliminator lll which prompted me to purchase one to install on my Browning 7mm. I have since used this rifle and scope combination for the past 3yrs off the bench at my local range which has target bunkers installed from 100yrds to 600yrds. Off the bench shooting Premium factory ammunition by Federal, Hornady, & Winchester. Shooting this ammunition from my rig has allowed me to hit every target on the range from under 1 1/2" groups on the 100yrd targets out through the range on 8" steel plates hitting each consecutively, even on windy days using the winds advice given in the scope during ranging. In addition to shooting from the bench I have hunted BEAR, COYOTE, MULE & WHITETAIL DEER, MOOSE, & ELK throughout ALBERTA CANADA in the fall with temperatures fluctuating between +10 F to well below -20 F. I have adjusted the ballistic coefficient on this scope for 5 different loads, made 100's of range requests through sleet, snow, & fog yet have not needed to replace the battery. Albeit, ranging targets in adverse conditions is certainly not absolutely fool proof, but it performs well enough to satifiy my expectations from a scope and rangefinder. This scope has served me very, very well & my only criticism is the optics are not as clear as I initially desired & that the remote activation switch introduced on previous models and on the newest Eliminator lll does not retrofit onto my older Eliminator lll.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot On!!! I bought my Eliminator III 4-16x50mm in March 2015. I struggled to get the bullet drop correct, but as many other I did not read the Manual completely. After reading that the easiest is to physically measure the drop over 750 Yards. All my calculations fell into place. What a awesome feeling to hit the target every time over 750 Yards. Something I never thought possible. My first shot in the field landed a 208 Pound Gemsbok Bull. Amazing feeling, one of my best Lifetime buys. Thanks Burris for a magnificent piece of equipment.

Which of the Eliminator laser scopes are the easiest to set up ?

Asked by: Anonymous
They will all setup the same. There is not one that is easier than another. We highly recommend getting your ballistic data from our Eliminator Tool. That can be found here: https://www.burrisoptics.com/ballistics#:1

What is the maximum range this will support for a 300 PRC 225 gr ELD? I ask because I've seen comments with previous generations that the max distance didn't reflect the cartridge capabilities.

Asked by: Sging
There isn't really a simple answer to this. The Eliminator IV will provide 34MOA of drop calibration in the reticle. After running the numbers for the 300PRC 225gr ELD it looks like 34 MOA *roughly* gets you to about 1150 yards at sea level. The Eliminator IV allows you to zoom out and get more compensation on the reticle. You will be able to go well beyond 1150 yards, but exactly how far I am unable to say. All of that being said, the Eliminator isn't the ideal scope for shooting as far as you can. It is specifically designed to give you a ballistic solution for hunting at extended ranges. For maxing out the potential of the cartridge I would recommend a true long range precision scope like the XTR III.

What is the maximum recommended cartridge size for the Eliminator 4?

Asked by: Anonymous
There isn't really a straight answer to that. It really all comes down to what you can program into the scope. If you are using a 100 yard zero, the drop number cannot exceed 230 inches, so the bullet will need substantial velocity if it very heavy. That being said if you are talking something like a .338 or .50BMG, they can definitely be used with a 100 or 200 yard zero.

How well do these scopes work with muzzleloaders? I'm currently using the old Nikon BDC 250 system. I would like to switch to the auto range finding method without seeding a separate range finder.

Asked by: Boss Buck
I have 2 of the second version of the eliminators on my muzzle loaders have taken deer out to 300 yards no problems.
