Bushnell ET4305?

Anyone had any experience with one? I can't put hands on one or seem to be able to find a legit review on the net. It's a little heavy and I'd rather buy US-made, but it seems to offer me the most of what I want/need for the best price. The broad range makes it real tempting, but I worry about what kind of clarity it has.

no zero stop and although I haven't seen it bushnell normally doesn't have alot of elevation in one turn of the turret.

I have a friend that has the 6-24 bye 50 and it is great scope
I think if you get one you will love it.

Re: Bushnell ET4305?

I'm pretty stuck on keeping the min. power down around 4. I was debating between a Mark 4 lr/t 4.5-14x50 and a Conquest 4.5-14x50 AO MC when I found this. Having the same low end with twice the top for a little less money sounds pretty sweet, but I wonder about the clarity and quality of it.

I don't know the 50 mm if it will start to get dark at the higher power mag
or not.........my self i won't use a scope over 25 power.....any i tryed seem to start getting darker on the high end of power......just my 2 cents

Re: Bushnell ET4305?

I have the elite 6500 4.4-30x50 with mil-dot and I am happy with the scope. It tracks well, the eye relief is great, the mil-dot is crisp, and I was concerned about the usability of the high power but it seems to stay bright enough on high power for a clear sight picture. It has held up fine over several shots mounted on my 300WM.
I don't think you would be at all disappointed with this scope and for under $1000.

I also have a Zeiss 4.5-14x44 which is a great scope, bright,clear, quality turrets,
17oz excellent for a lightweight rifle.

Re: Bushnell ET4305?

Hey Nieko, since you have experience with both let me ask you this. If you had to chose between the Zeiss and the Bushnell, which one do you give up and why?
