Looks like a smart scope. Burris eliminator III style, but it looks like quality.

Saw those as well. They weigh a ton. No built in range finder. Not really sure what good they are. And at $2650 “show special” I could buy a damn nice scope and a nice range finder

Looks like some pretty interesting technology.

If I'm understanding their web information, this scope does not range for you...but it basically keeps up with all your dope and takes care of all the calculations. Maybe it will become wildly popular...or maybe not.

Essentially eliminates the need for dope charts and places it all in the scope, plus it adds all of the parameters a kestel gives you (temp elevation, station pressure, etc.) except wind and calculates the changes. I like the electronic anti-cant indicator. You still need a rangefinder to get your distance but then just dial the elevation turret until you see a similar distance (I think it’s only in MOAs currently) and then you hold wind correction and BOOM! Would be really interested if it came in MILs also. If it could range distance then it would be amazing. Not sure of the quality of glass. Not a lot of field reviews on it online yet.

Ahh. Seems pretty spendy then.

The first digital watch I ever saw was a Texas Instruments product. It was in 1971 or '72...it had an LED display. The price tag was around $1200...in 1972 dollars!

I think this is the kind of technology that could conceivably become very affordable, but someone's going to have to get the ball rolling and buy a few so that they can be sold for less.

30 moa per revolution. 85 moa total. Maybe I am reading it wrong that’s why it shows.
