Burris Eliminator III?

Good day experts!

Anyone here toyed with the Burris Eliminator III on the M1A or any other rifle you may own?

As some of you may know from other threads I was looking at the notion of going with something more modern, digital, and/or with ballistics calculations built in, that sort of thing... brining modern tech to a venerable workhorse platform like the M14/M1A.

To that the ATN X-Sight II seemed the only choice as an optic that offered things like "one shot zeroing", ballistics calculators including wind speed and direction, elevation, etc. entry directly into the scope's computer, etc... but after doing some intense research I am starting to waver a bit on that idea given all I have been discovering about ATN's lack of aggressive movement on fixing known bugs and activating features that have been promised but not activated even since its release (like the bluetooth direct link to the app on your phone), with some viable bugs not having been even acknowledged as being on a bug list schedule yet even after a year of user notifications.

That being the case - I am having a LOT of trouble finding anything remotely like the ATN that is not a thermal or NV scope full time with "Daytime capability". I don't want that, and honestly I am not sure I could even use those option in Colorado since hunting with NV / Thermal is illegal. Thus far the closest thing I have been able to find is the Burris Eliminator (now 3) laser scope which seems to be traditional glass design with built in laser rangefinder, and a ballistics compensation system for drop at measured range. It lacks many of the other features, most obviously being digital and therefore "programmable" per say / one shot zeroing concept, but it does have an actual laser rangefinder up to 1000 yards built in, with an automatic "dot" placement for where you should adjust your crosshairs onto the target. That is a huge plus over the ATN which uses that weird measurement of object size method to range calculate in a way, to me anyway.

So - what I am wondering is if anyone has ever used, can provide first hand review of the Burris Eliminator III... pros, cons, indifferences, you name it.

OR... has any idea of any other similar optics out there that I am missing that offers features like the ATN, and/or the Eliminator that is not a NV or Thermal as the primary / exclusive mode of operation.
