which bushnell 3200?

i have decided to put a bushnell elite 3200 3-9x on my new rifle, but can't decide on which specific model. i have it narrowed down to the following:

1. 3-9x40 multi x reticle
2. 3-9x40 3-2-1 low light reticle
3. 3-9x50 multi x fast focus

i will be using the rifle for meduim range deer hunting (out to about 400 yds.) and
also coyote hunting, so i want something that will perform well in low light conditions. also, i was wondering what the 3-2-1 low light reticle looks like, and what makes it work in low light?
thanks-wi whitetail

Re: which bushnell 3200?

My opinion would be go with the standard 3-9x40, multi-x. For normal hunting conditions it will work fine. The 3-2-1 low light reticle is a step down type reticle, were you have real heavy post on the outside, than move down to a medium post, than stepping down to a standard fine crosshair in the center. So there is basically 3 different thickness in the reticle.

Have you looked at their "Fire Fly" reticle that you charge with a flashlight and it glows for several hours with minute charge?

If your interested in a Bushnell 3200, check out the new Legend series that is offered by Bushnell. I bought the Bushnell 5-15x40 Mil Dot with "fully mulitcoated len's" and am very very happy with its performance. I also saved alot of money by purchasing it through SWFA.

I have one of the new Legends (3x9x50) on my 338 Winchester. Side by side its tough to tell the differance in clearity. I do like the 3-2-1 reticle on the 3200 though. Plus I got the 3200 on a hell of a sale at a local sporting goods store. The price differance was minimal then.

Re: which bushnell 3200?

I have the 30mm tube 3x-9x50mm Elite 3200 "Firefly" Bushnell which will be taking the place of my 1" tube 4x-16x50mm
Elite 4200 on top of my Sako TRG-S Warbird
after I'm done climbing the Mts. for Dall Sheep.

There is nothing wrong with the 4200
only reason I'll be switching is 'cause of the area I hunt for moose, the ranges won't be much past 300 yards and with a lot of
hunting pressure the bulls only appear in the last and first few minutes of light.
Therefore the decision to move to the 30mm
tube and the Firefly reticle.

My experience with the 4200 has made me a believer in the Rainguard coating and the Elite series of Bushnell scopes, you'd be hard pressed to get a better scope for the money you'll pay for the Elites, guaranteed!!
