Can I Ethically Extend The Hitting Distance Of A Rifle?

Firearm Accuracy Part 4

A technical advancement in rifle scope technology that allows ethical placement of accurate hits on more distant targets, is now available.

Introducing the Burris Eliminator III Ballistic Laserscope.  The Burris, when calibrated to the load in the calibre you are using, will at the press of a button, measure the distance and indicate the required hold over for that distance.  It is no longer a requirement to have the flattest shooting calibre money can buy to take those long shots.  One must ensure though, that the fired round will have sufficient energy to take the selected game at these greater distances.

The pictured combination has taken foxes @ 320, 350, 420 and 437 Yards.  There is still the challenge of wind effect.  Burris calculates how much to allow for wind based on a 10mph breeze.  Accurately quantifying the wind effect for the entire flight of the projectile will probably remain an art form.

  1. I have one and love it. Very accurate if you account for air density at the time of shooting ie hotter weather has over air density and smaller drop numbers. This is more significant for larger calibers.
