For what you get it is a good all-in-one purchase.
I have run mine out to 1K
Ernie, maybe my "final intent" did not come across so well, but my thoughts are that you are absolutely correct. Though I am going to continue to berate Burris for the glass quality... as I said the other advantages outweigh the glass "gig". This scope will allow someone with good shooting skills to reach much longer ranges, at need.
I am still, and always will be, of the opinion that a "hunter" uses hunting acumen to get as close to the game as possible in order to ensure a clean, humane, rapid kill. This scope allows someone with good shooting skills to confidently reach out to ranges not normally considered wise… calculations performed internally.
Ernie's experience with the Eliminator is at longer ranges than mine, but I've gotten a good feel for how it performs and I'm happy with what I've experienced. Even though I want better glass, I'm keeping it. It is now a "part of" the most accurate rifle ever made. The combination is awesome. I wish my Hensoldt had the electronics of the Eliminator… the Eliminator had the optical quality of the Hensoldt.
The Etronix/Eliminator combo is now my "varmint rig". And 220 Swift is a great round for hogs… personal experience.
I agree, that the glass isn't great, but it is sufficient for the task at hand.
Maybe, I would use the word content.
I guess I am kind of an optics snob.
For folks who are what I would describe as general hunters and shooters, the glass isn't a problem for them.
My batteries have lasted for over a year-FWIW.
I think they might be available to all now or very soon, but there is an upgrade to the E-3 in two areas.
It has new software to handle BP, rimfire, and subsonic, plus the the pressure switch-WAY COOL BURRIS!
