New Bushnell LRHS

Info for you guys on a New Scope think you guys will like.

30mm Tube
44mm OBJ
1/10th Mil/Mil adjustments
10 MIL per rev low profile elevation knob
24 mils of travel
Zero Stop (Easy to Set!!)
10 mil per rev windadge , capped
side focus 20ft to INF
great field of view

Glass on par with $2500+ scopes

Bushnell let Myself and Pat Sinclair spec this scope out completely. lots of the features were formulated from Pats experience in big game hunting and predator hunting. We thought of lots of little things that would be perfectly combined into the ultimate LR Hunting scope. From large numbering and a zero Indicator to easy to use elevation knob and zero stop, capped but useable/zeroable windadge knob. Easy to adjust power ring. Newly designed LR huntind reticle.

About the reticle, the G2DMR reticle was redesigned for better use as LR Hunting reticle. The bars filled in and brought in closer to the center, more defined center for better low light use, a 4 Mil halo around the center for rapid centering and use as a donut of death on low power, the same mil grid for elevation holdover and wind hold-off as the Original G2. Behold the G2H!!

This scope is going to Debut at the Shot Show and first 200 units on April 10th of 2014. A few will go out to testers, and Pat will update everyone on his use of it and the testing he is doing with it already. Earlier prototypes have already proven worthy on some LR Antelope and Deer 1268 yards was longest .


This will be the start to a line of LR Hunting scopes Bushnell has plans to offer, Ideas coming - MOA version, 4x16x50 model for 2015, LR varmint model???


This scope is also the perfect optic for a Precision AR type rifle. Bushnell will be offering a FDE Model called the LRS for this purpose as well in the fall of 2014.


MSRP $1499

Re: New Bushnell LRHS

In all honesty it's almost perfect, that capped windage turret needs to go! Caps are a huge detractor, I would send them a check right now if not for that. I see this being a huge win in the tactical market as well something to rival the nightforce but they screwed up with that cap it's going to be the deciding factor between this optic and the nf compact.

Re: New Bushnell LRHS

Seems just about right. I'm a Mil guy. I like a 44 obj. lens, light weight and zero stop. Low profile turrets work well in a scabbard. The donut is a necessity for FFP on low power as the reticle is lost on dark targets or low light conditions. Lesser magnification multiplier probably will keep the reticle from shrinking into nothingness. Not sure about the windage cap but I can live with it and it definitely won't spin yanking it out of a scabbard.

I'd like to see street pricing adjusted lower than MSRP as SWFA has a 3x15 FFP at half the price that is more than serviceable but admittedly lacks some of the finer features. Assuming it's tough enough to handle a horse grinding it into the ground while rolling, I think you have a winner here.
