Re: buying new scope, super sniper or bushnell4200??
I've got two Super Snipers, one a 10X and the other a 16X. I love them both. The optics are extremely clear and bright, and the scopes seem to manufacture light. The only reason I would consider the Elite over the super sniper would be the magnification. It all depends on what you do with the rifle. I rarely shoot anything inside of 300 yards, so the higher power scopes work fine most of the time. I do have a fixed 6X Nikon that I will move around if I feel that less would be better. I prefer fixed power scopes. I have to believe that fewer moving parts means inherently better accuracy. Whether or not I'll shoot well enough to criticize the scope or not remains to be seen…………..
The 16X is a bitch to find the target through if you are closer than 300 yards. I can see pinholes in a target at 100, but that is after I find the target. The field of view on the 10X is something like three times as wide. I'm going up north to limit the prairie dog population next month. We never set up closer than 300 yards, so the 16X will be sitting on the Savage that day.
