|New Bushnell Elite Tactical Scopes - hands on info
March 22, 2011
As many of you know, Bushnell has eliminated their Elite 3200 and 4200 line of scopes and combined them into a single "Elite" line of scopes. They retained their 10x40mm, 5-15x40mm, 6-24x50mm, and 3-12x44mm FFP Tactical versions of these scopes. With the 10x40 and 5-15x40mm there really is not much noticeably different beyond the box and the knobs know having white marks again instead of green. But I was messing with a 6-24x50mm model the other day and decided to test the number of MOA adjustments and to my surprise, there was an improvement! The old 4200 version was listed at 50 MOA of elevation and sometimes you were lucky to get that. But with this one, I measured a full 65 MOA of adjustment. That is now getting to the nicely usable category! I have not played with the new 3-12x44 version yet, but it always has had a good amount of elevation.
