Re: New-Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x50 Tactical?
I think you better get your mildot calibrater recalibrated [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
The reticle is a plain-jane mildot version of the mildot reticle in my opinion.
I shot the scope a lot yesterday on one of my older .308 rifles and it tracked nicely, had 45 moa of elevation from top to bottom and 45moa of windage from side to side. Let a couple of young guys try it, one guy proceeded to put four consecutive shots into just under 0.75" - at 200 yards. Scope was on 16 power, it provides a very sharp image at 16, gets a bit duller at 24, you can see a significant difference in light transmittion. Still sharp enough to shoot but not tacky and bright compared to down a bit.
Shot a group of five shots at 6x then cranked it to 24x and five more - all same POI. Clicks are sharp, bit of a wander in sharpness at the extremes but still good - by wander I mean they seemed to get a bit lighter.
Got to watch the barrel contour of your rifle - that fifty mm front-end is bulky, got to have at least mediums or better for rings, even on a Near or Badger rail.
Same turret handles as used on the 10X 3200 Tactical I believe, look and operate the same, easy to zero-up after you shoot your 100 zero.
Side turret works nicely, fast focus eyepiece snaps the reticle into focus.
Back to Roy, who in hell needs first reticle plane scopes - haven't you heard about laser rangefinders [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] First plane scopes give me the vapors - damn recticals get too big, most of the suckers are metric, what in hell is a centimeter?? Three clicks to a meter or something like that, I prefer inches and quarter moa clicks.
Getting back to the 4200 - everybody who has seen it wants to buy it. That tells you somethin'.
