New Bushnell Elite® 4200 Tactical scope

Here are the specks:
6-24x50mm 30mm tube, Mildot reticle, 50 MOA total travel both ways with 1/4 MOA clicks, 2nd focal plane and ranging would be at the 12 power, and a 3" eye relief.
Has anyone seen or tried it? Looks real promising.

We got 3 in on Tuesday and I have one left. All I did was take it out of the box and look @ it but it looks good!! Glass was clear and clicks felt nice.

Bill
What focal plane is it? First or second? If it's second then at what power do we have to put it to range?
Next how much$$ and will you ship to Canada?

It is second. I think "12" was in red. That would be my guess for ranging. Makes sense, that way when you put it on 24x, the dots are .5 mil apart.

Email me and we'll talk about the price and shipping.

Re: New Bushnell Elite® 4200 Tactical scope

I have one and it looks great. Been so windy I have not shot it yet, but will real soon as it is ready to mount. Will give some details shortly. That's correct, you mil-range on 12 but who in heck does that - really. Second plain reticle - why would you want first plain (again, who actually uses mildots in the field for ranging during a hunt, who knows actual dimensions of a particular critter - that is what lasers are for in my warped opinion).

Re: New Bushnell Elite® 4200 Tactical scope

Myself I love the mildot to learn ranging and the use of holdover and under. It's fun and a challenge. Sure lazers are quicker but no challenge. I may get one in the future but for now it's going to wait a good while. Right now with my custom set-up I know my holdovers as far as 700 yrds by heart and that's so cool and fast. I know the sizes of my prey pretty well by heart so that makes things even quicker. And on and on and on... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Man I love training with this new method.

Re: New Bushnell Elite® 4200 Tactical scope

I use the mil dot system for ranging, and within, say, 700 yards, it has been extremely reliable (wish I can say that about laser range finders). The great thing about the bushnell 6-24 that mils at 12 x, is that if you crank it to 24 x, each mil represents .5 mil, and getting an very accurate mil reading is much easier (given you know the brisket to back measurement of the game).
