New for 2024: Burris Eliminator 6 Riflescope

What does it eliminate? Guesswork, bad shots and empty-handed hunts ... and that's just the beginning.

Burris has been making rangefinding riflescopes for the last 18 years, so the company's had better opportunities than most to refine and perfect its best electronic-driven glass. With five generations of the popular Eliminator rangefinding riflescope under its belt, Burris' new-for-2024, completely redesigned Eliminator 6 is set to eliminate the guesswork from shooting, so you can focus on your form and marksmanship. The result is a better, more ethically-driven hunt in the vein of "Train Far. Hunt Responsibly. Don't Miss."

At first glance, the Eliminator 6 might look like just another riflescope, but it's not. It integrates the most advanced ranging, environmental monitoring, optical performance and ballistics technology into a single, unified platform. Using it is beyond simple: Just range your target, hold the illuminated aiming point on your target (hold wind if necessary), and squeeze the trigger. 

The foundation of the Eliminator 6 is a more contemporary riflescope chassis with a modern profile featuring objective and ocular bells aesthetically balanced around a robust 34mm tube. Function and form meld with an aggressively knurled cap and adjustment knob design that delivers no-slip operation even when wearing gloves. The parallax and illumination adjustments are now conveniently located on a conventional turret-style knob that also contains the range activation and brightness button array.

  • Ranging – At the touch of a button, the Eliminator 6 offers instant and precise ranging out to 2000+ yards on reflective targets and 1400 yards on deer hide. Simply place the reticle on the target, depress the ranging button, and the distance in yards or meters is presented on the scope's heads-up display (HUD).
  • Environmental Monitoring – Climate and terrain play a big part in ballistics. The Eliminator 6 features a built-in thermometer, barometer and inclinometer, and it automatically measures density altitude (which can also be manually selected). From this, the Eliminator 6 selects the ballistics solution via the previously calculated database drawn from the Burris Connect app.
  • Ballistic Compensation– The Eliminator 6 ballistic solutions are built on the BurrisConnect mobile app and uploaded to the scope. Bluetooth connectivity between the scope and the user's mobile device allows the user to create an internal DOPE card in the Eliminator 6 that combines ranging, environmental and ballistic data to achieve the perfect shot. Users can create profiles using factory load data or completely custom covering firearms from muzzleloaders and slug guns to precision rifles.
  • Precise Aiming Solutions – The digital DOPE card works with ­the scope's illuminated X177 reticle to display the precise holdover aiming point for the ranged distance. Combined with the reticle's windage hold-off points, the Eliminator 6 offers a massive 177 aim points with 1/5 MOA precision to ensure reliable point-of-aim/point-of-impact performance.
  • Comprehensive User Interface – The Eliminator 6 presents up to 10 data points in the HUD. This information is divided into zones that can be turned on or off to the shooter's preference via the Burris Connect app. The ranged distance and wind hold value can also be swapped per the user’s preference.
  • ShotCall Marker– Available for display in the HUD is bullet velocity and bullet energy at the ranged distance. Embodying the "Hunt Responsibly" ethic, these features allow the shooter to recognize when the shot distance may be too far and the velocity/energy too low to ensure an ethical kill. In addition to showing the bullet's calculated velocity and energy at the ranged distance, the scope also offers a ShotCall Marker. The SCM will display an "X" if the user defined ballistic terminal performance is inadequate at the ranged distance.
