Re: New Bushnell LRHS

LOL, MOA is fading slowly, It looks like they will be doing a MOA version latter in 2014. There is this great divide every Military Sniper uses Mils. All the Long Range field matches are shot with mil scopes. Now that longrange hunting is getting bigger and there is allot of interest it only makes scence that all you hunters will see the light soon. I shot MOA for years, in about 2003 I switched and dont own a moa scope anymore

6.5 for 1000 yards is easier to dial and remember than 22.75

Capped windage is important, for the Horse scabbard, the long packing, the spills. you should all be holding wind anyway not dialing it.

Re: New Bushnell LRHS

The windage tics on the elevation lines look like they would be hard to see at mid power.

Re: New Bushnell LRHS

I have been thinking about this scope all day, it brings to much to the table over the nf I have been saving for not to go with it. However by the time it's available will see if I still have the money. George your right about the mil thing I personally never understood the moa thing and mil is so much easier for my brain.

Re: New Bushnell LRHS

Love it! I have been drooling over it on the Hide for a while now.

Not a lot of MIL guys on this forum. Hopefully the haters don't show up and ruin a good thread!

I cannot agree any more with the above! So much easier for me.

That's a bold claim. Most scopes in the $2500+ price range have a triplet objective lens. Does this LRHS model have a triplet objective?

Either way, I think this LRHS model will be a winner somewhere. The LRH model may be better suited to the precision rifle community, than the LRHS model is to the hunting community. Long range hunters seem to prefer higher magnification and SFP. Personally, I'm satisfied with 12X out to about 750 yds, which is my upper limit for hunting. However, 12X on the high end forces you to bring a spotting scope for counting antler points. The donut reticle feature obscures the field of view for long range shots. I'll have a better feel for the reticle design after I see it at SHOT in Jan.

Incidentally, I've been using a Bushnell HDMR H59 scope on a 50 BMG rifle in ballistics testing for the past year and it's holding up very well. I've been generally pleased with the direction Bushnell has gone with their tactical and other high end scopes.
