I've had 3.still have 2.these make shooting to 750 very easy. Glass kinda sucks for the price as does field of view.

I'm bringing this back up, I'm really considering one after all. The $999 one doesn't have the remote touch pad, but maybe it could be added, or maybe it isn't that big of a deal. Just last week I had a stand where it might have made the difference. As it was, the coyote was hard to spot in thick grass, and getting the rangefinder on him, then back to the rifle, and he disappeared again.

Now what can I sell to make up the money to justify it to myself...and going from Zeiss Conquest glass to Burris, am I going to be really disappointed early and late in the day are the questions.

I do not think the touch-pad cannot be added.

No, it can't be added, and you need the 3 with the touch-pad if you want to use it on a rim fire.

I pulled the trigger on the 4-16 with the touchpad. I honestly was about to buy the non touchpad one today from Amazon, but did one last search and ended up at Scheels, where they have the touchpad model for $999 also. I just couldn't pass that up lol. Now I have to decide which rifle to attach it to. Probably an AR in either 243 WSSM or 243 LBC.

Is there something in the programming to adjust height above the bore for it's calculations?

Not really. You choose whether you want a 50 or 100 yard zero. For rimfires you use the 50 for your calibers 100yds will be your zero. Once you get the gun shooting dead nuts at your zero, the scope is basically a scope with a range finder built into it. You aim the crosshairs at what you want to shoot and push the button. The scope reads the range and calculates the holdover for the deviation over or under your 100 yard zero and provides an illuminated dot to show you where to hold. It is slick. I have mine on a Franklin Armory AR in .17 WSM. I used the 50 yard rimfire zero. I went to our outdoor range an was plinking (not ringing) steel with it at 225 yards. I was impressed. You got a really good price on it. I paid over $1,200 a year ago.

Just use this and it will get you close.
https://ballistics.burrisoptics.com/eliminator#:1

Places where you will find discrepancy (where software doesn't match up to real world drops) is typically because of two things: Muzzle velocity and BC, with BC being the biggest culprit.
Ballistic Coefficients are not fixed (Even though some will give you a fixed BC), and they are sometimes inflated by bullet manufactures.
This problem is not as bad as it was 1-15 years ago, but it exists.
When you do drop confirmations, try to find a really calm day, as wind can a have a vertical effect.
Topography does as well, and that is more obvious.
Then try to reconfirm your drops on another day.
A Magnetospeed or Labradar is going to be the most accurate.
You should have close to 100 through a new barrel as many custom barrel will have an increase in velocity somewhere around 75-125 rounds.
If I have a disagreement between actual drops and the technology (The E-3 in this case) I adjust the BC on the ballistic software to make the software match my actual drops.

It showed up today, I got it mounted and zeroed at 100, but only tested to 200 lol. It was dead on of course. I'm sure I'll have to tweak the info when I get it out to long range. It would have been a great day to test it but I ran out of daylight. The rangefinder does work great and way faster than I figured. It's lighter than I expected also. Field of view is limited for sure.

Overall, I think I'm going to love this thing when I get it out hunting. I'm really looking forward to using it.
