Yep im with you.Awesome about sums it up,Iwanted a fixed power scope for my 204 and had a choice between a loopy 12x or this funny looking out of proportion bushnell 10x40 3200.The loopy was 2nd hand and a fair bit dearer so I went for the bushnell.Ididn't like oversized turrets as I thought they would get knocked off but since bushnell has a lifetime warranty i reckoned i'd give it ago.Well you know I got it home,dropped it on my ruger,boresighted it fired 1 shot at 100 yds.The bullet landed 6" to the right and 1and a half inches high so I held the scope steady on the bench rest and wound the windage across untill the cross hair was in line with the bullet hole.I then fired another 3 shots to confirm poi to be 1.5"high above the point of aim,4shots and the job was done.you dont get much better than that,and by the way,i've bumped the turrets against the 4wd lever in my ute several times now and they dont break. As far as optical quality of glass is concerned,its not as good as my new vx3 3.5-10x50 but its not far behind it and i didnt buy it to shoot deer in the last glimmer of light either. My best shot was 3 crows at 300yds with one shot,now you got to be happy with that
