Bushnell is not my first choice, but being that the Bushnell Elite series used to be Bausch & Lomb scopes (same scopes, different brand name on them), and I used to hunt with a B&L Elite 3000 30mm 3-9x50 FireFly reticle and I know how good quality they are, I'd go with the Bushy Elite.
As a matter of fact, I just found an old picture of my old B&L Elite 3K sitting on top of my old custom Model 7 .308 Win. The scope was later removed and mounted on my first Browning A-Bolt II Composite Stalker 7RM, and I hunted with that combo for YEARS, and whacked 'em and stacked 'em. With that scope you could literally see over a greenfield at midnight with just the starlight. It was crazy. Not that I was deer hunting at night, but was coyote hunting. They're not considered a game animal down here...So they're year-round 24/7 with no bag limit.
