Default ANYONE Seen THIS?

Just makes you wonder! From Sig description " When paired via Bluetooth together, the rangefinder sends ballistic drop data directly to the Sierra3BDX riflescope's BDX-R1 reticle to provide an illuminated holdover dot and wind hold."

Pretty F'in COOL to me, just wonder if anyone has any experience with this combo?

Yeah, but determining windage you're still on your own. They should've used a Horus type inverted Christmas tree recticle to help with windage - sort of like the Eliminator does. A duplex doesn't help much in that regard.

With the Eliminator, it's an all-in-one package versus 2 items for the Sig.

The eliminator is what I'm going to get if I ever take up hunting again. Make life simple.

All three (Sig, Revic, and Eliminator) look cool, but are they good glass or just cheap glass with a gimmick? Anyone have experience with these vs something like Zeiss or NightForce?

Revic does not have integrated LRF, so you would need to know or measure distance to target. Slightly different than the other 2.

Eliminator is decent glass to my eyes from the few times I have used it. It is bigger/bulkier than the BDX since it is all one unit.

Haven't gotten out on the range with the BDX yet but it looks really promising. Higher magnifications available, scalable and somewhat modular technology, etc

The whole BDX integration system is fairly new. It definitely looks promising. I'm waiting for the Kilo 3000BDX RF binos to hit and see how well the BT works with Kestrels and, hopefully sometime soon, the Garmin 701. The few Sig scopes that I've tried all had decent glass so I think these will be fine as well.

Actually, The scope literature says it calculates for wind hold also!

A buddy of mine bought one that I played with a bit a few months ago. I was VERY impressed.

The rangefinder his had was accurate to the yard at known target distances where we often shoot, out to beyond 2,000 against a rock face in midday sun that wasn't super bright. The scope did its little christmas tree light up dance and put the dot where it should be. Very fun, and if the electronics hold up, a really cool package.
