Re: Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x40

REM 700.. very interesting. YouŽre the first one with a bad story, but is this first hand info, or is it your buddys words?

Anyway, I cant believe that a scope in the amount of $3-400 would trouly satisfy me, but the the many great stories made me order it. Looking forward to see if this will be the last cheap scope I buy or if IŽll only stick with those.

If this sucks... there is no other solution than Zeiss in the future.

IŽve got mine 4200 now. It has been tried out. I got only 1 thing to say about it.. I totally LOVED IT. Could see the holes made by .222 in the target at 300 meters.

I am so far 100% saitisfied.

Rem700, I bet the lenses are off in that scope. Send it back for repair or try adjusting the occular lense better.

If you like the 3200series of Elites, you will be blown away with the 4200series. They are that much better.

I have owned a 3000 3X9 - 40 and was quite happy until I looked into a 4000 2.5X10, and 6X24. I now own these 4000 series scopes I quickly, and painlessly sold the 3000 3X9.

I have looked through a variety of Leupolds and have never found one that was better. Equal maybe, but not better. At half the cost, I am sold on the Elite 4200/4000 scopes. Only downside is the lack of elevation in the 6X24.

Now if they would just make a 4200 10X or variable tactical like their 3200series scope, look out Leupold.

Jerry,

I too have an elite 4000 with 1/8 moa. I was wandering if I shim the bases, will I have enough scope to shoot out to 1000yds. I am shooting a 300 win mag. with 190 grn SMK'S. Getting around 3000 fps.

Re: Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x40

Samson, I checked Bushnell's website and the 6-24 has 26moa, so .020" shim under your base may be enough for a 300mag. although your scope will be maxed out, and then your optical quality will be compomised a bit, tapered base and(or) Burris Signature rings would help to get your reticles back near the scopes zero for better optical quality.Jay

Is the scope really made of titanium? I bent my last scope and now have a 6-24X Elite.
