Elite Tactical just came

I got my Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x50 (30mm tube) Target Turret scope in the mail today. I immedieatly compared the glass to the my dad's Monarch (the Monarch seems to have good glass), I honestly think the Elite was better than the Monarch (it was tough to tell). The scope feels like a quality peice when you pick it up, may be heavier than some would want. The Focus has a very positive and smooth feel. The turrets are designed nicely (extremely simular to the 3200 10x40 tactical) although the clicks aren't quite as nice as some of my other scopes. It has 38 MOA elevation adjustment (would like to have had more). There are 12 MOA per revoulution of the turret. I will try to have it mounted and go shoot it this weekend. Here are some pics.


This pic is far from perfect the camera was apparently moving too much.




The scope probably looks smaller than it is in this pic (my hands are fairly large).

Holey cow those cross hairs are crooked. Look a couple of snakes crossing.:eek:

oop's that was with my right eye. The one w/visible macular degenerations.

It looks A-OK with the good ol' left eye.

I was looking at this same scope on the Midway website and couldn't believe the warranty. I copy/pasted it below. Not a bad way to try out a scope. Post back after you give it a try, I'd be interested in hearing how it worked out for you.


1 Year "Bullet-Proof" Warranty. Bushnell will repair, replace or refund your money if not completely satisfied with this product.

I wonder if the 38 MOA of elevation is supposed to be like that? They advertise 50 MOA.

I'd ask if you could trade for the 6500. ;)

This is the scope I'm hoping to get, I can't afford a NF or Leupy VXIII, let us know how it does at the range.

Good call, I just recounted and got 44 MOA on elevation, now that's a little better. I thought (probably incorrectly) they were supposed to have 40 MOA adjustment so I wasn't particularly supprised when I came up with 38 on my first count.

Here's some pics mounted on the rifle, I'll let you know how it goes (hopefully I'll be shooting tommarow).
