Bushnell Elite 3200 10x40 mil-dot scope

Anybody tried one of these scopes and are they adequate for a mid-range scope??

    I've used one and think it's one of the best low-priced scopes for long-range work. Killed groundhogs with it from 400 to 800 yards and shot f-class (800, 900, 1000). Check out my rifle:

    My choice was based on this article:

    You can find the scope on ebay for $165 new!

    so, not having an adjustible objective lense is not a problem?

    It was not a problem for me. Looking at an f-class target at 1k, I could clearly see the target rings and watch the reticle on the target.

    With ground hogs beyond 700yard the crosshairs were heavy enough that they covered up the 'hog. I compensated by finding the 'hog in the scope and when the hog disappeared behind the crosshairs, squeezed the round off.

    For a <$200 scope I don't think you can beat it.

    When I upgraded to a Leupold MK4 I had a couple buddies standing in line to buy the Bushnell from me.

    I have 2 of them and they work well. I routinely shoot out to 900 yards with these. I have no problem with the fixed power except when hunting in thick brush/timber. Even then they get the job done.

    a good clear scope, light and strongly constructed, clear glass and a rain coating on lenses which is very good in adverse conditions. For me though, i do like side PA on any scope for just that fine tuning..
