    I know a few blokes with these & haven't heard much in the way of problems as far as them working as promised. The ethics brigade may raise an eyebrow though.

    I have an early model one on one of my dart guns. I doubt this use was ever considered in its design & production, but its worth its weight in gold to me for this work.

    I know of a stalker who uses one to good use and I have seen him use it. Once set up correctly, it is a very accurate tool.

    Ethics etc..... Well, if a job needs doing...
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    A decent scope with target windage, elevation and parallax turrets will be more accurate and just as quick if not quicker to operate, but I have looked at these in the past and often thought it would be fun to have a play with one just to see how accurate they are. If you buy one please right a report.

    Been thinking about one for over a year so i think i will get one...thing is i just luv the s&b scope so i will keep a hold of it incase im not happy with the burris....well if the price is right i may be tempted.... I would include s&b sunshade and warne mouts, buttler flip ups etc... Just cant decide i think the mk 2 is a better option as the drop works on all mag not just on x 12 like the mk1

    The one I have is about 4 years old now & I know they've changed a wee bit, but mine is excellent (fast & accurate) for judging distance between 15 & 60m. No longer having to carry around a separate range finder, but also minimising the extra movement & time involved that is needed with a separate ranger. (I can't remember how many range finders I've set down & forgot about in the heat of the moment. lol)

    I'm more confident when I use this scope (thats important when fast decisions are needed) & when every mg of drug has to be accounted for, & when your always being judged on your failures & not your success. Having 10 deer in the trailer instead of 7 at the end of the day would be another good way to describe how much more efficient this scope is.

    I havent used these scopes on long range shooting, but several blokes I respect do, & they say good things about them.

    Building a rangefinder into a scope is a good enough idea, but assumes that you're going to be shooting at ranges which are unpredictable, vary considerably, and where bullet drop is significant. If you are, and you need to take your shots quickly, then these scopes can be useful, especially if you are shooting at quite large targets (the spacing between the LEDs in the reticle equates to more than a few clicks on the elevation turret so they're not as precise as dialling in).

    They might be handy for culling deer on the hill, which are highly mobile and where close stalks are time-consuming and can prove futile, and they can be handy when lamping wary foxes that won't come in to a call.

    Wind still remains a factor, of course, and one that is best addressed with the use of a meter, ballistic tables or software and dialling in or holding off on a reticle... and if you're doing that for wind, you may as well do the same for elevation. The Eliminator III is a bit more capable in this regard, but still rather depends on ready-reckoning.
