    Im ordering a DMR2 or HDMR2 right away for the bushnell 30% rebate and cant decide between the 2 reticles. I like the floating dot in the H59 and also like the simplicity of the G3.

    On that note im currently using a PST 6-24 ffp scope and the reticle seems extra thick at 24 power. Down around the 20x range it doesnt seem to bad.

    I would appreciate any photos people have of these reticles on targets/animals that arent already on google (ive searched and cant find any photos that meet what im looking for)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    These were sent to me buy a retailer. It appears the G3 has a thinner center section on the non illuminated model. Im buying this one and will report back once i receive it if anyone’s interested

    Thanks for the heads up...just scored an XRS II for $1575 with rebate...retail $2250

    Holy crap...you guys are right...no deal for the Elite Tactical Scopes...

    No rebate for me...

    I just got my XRS II G3 non illuminated...the center of the cross hair is thinner than my XRS II G3 illuminated.

    Nice scope by the way...you even get a neoprene-like scope cover with these...

    You will be really happy with choosing the non illuminated G3 reticle.

    How did you get the rebate on the xrs2. It says the rebate isn’t available on the ET series of scopes. Also how is the eyebox and CA on the xrs2? That was my biggest complaint with the dmr2. Finicky eyebox and bad CA if you weren’t in the perfect sweet spot.

    I want you to be right don't get me wrong, cause I was close to ordering another xrs 2 myself but it seemed odd that Bushnell or any company would take off $700 from their brand new flagship scope, so I called and the guy said it didn't apply to the elite line, I know on midway it says rebate available but I wanted to be 100% before I bought it cause 700 is a Lot of money, if you don't mind I would like to know if the rebate does apply

    I'm sorry bud, I was hoping it might have changed, they screwed up and should have made it clear as soon as it was noticed, maybe you can get your money back if you don't want to keep it now, I'm sure your not the only one that bought it thinking that, I know I was a few minutes away from being in the same place
