Opinions- Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15X40 Mil-Dot

Need a better scope for longer range on my7mmRM Looking at the Elite 3200 5-15X40 Mil-Dot
Bushnell 5-15x40 Elite 3200 Rifle Scope

Opinions? Done searches with no conclusive opinions to be found. I know it's not a top brand. The economy what it is there's no money for a $1,000.00+ scope.

I loved mine. Wish I would have kept it. I only wished that it had a bit more adjustment. Other than that it was awesome.

I don't thing that there is a better $300 scope.



btw, I don't think that there is such a thing as a "conclusive opinion". Kind of a oxymoron.

Thanks.
Yea poor choice of words.
I guess opinions to help me draw a better conclusion.


At what point did you feel it lacked adjustment? What were you using it on?

I have one on a Tikka Varmint .223 and love it. I have only shot it at the range so far out to 300 yards.

Very repeatable, good glass. Great value.

Re: Opinions- Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15X40 Mil-Dot

For the price they are hard to be. They are not a scope I really count on. I have used them on a 308 and 223 but now its on a 22.



For the price I really like the scope and compared to other scopes in it style and price range it a very nice scope.

If we can help you get one feel free to ask.

Re: Opinions- Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15X40 Mil-Dot

I bought one on a whim and am well pleased. I have it on a Savage 300WSM and it has helped me get more out of the rifle and round than the Leupold VX3 I originally had on it. The adjustments are positive and it has demonstrated good repeatability. I would not hesitate to buy another one. Best $300 I ever sent to The Optic Zone.
