    Just wondering how many use this scope for FT and how they get on with the rangefinding? I have one on my backup rifle and it hasn't seen any use yet.

    Bushnell Scope

    Hi all, i have mine primarily on top of my Pro Target although at the min its on the top of a Steyr LG100, competition wise ive only used it through the Nefta Winter league but as far as im concerned its a brilliant bit of kit, the range finding i find to be second to none but i haven't really had any other scope to compare it to as i shoot on a budget but to be honest im 100% happy with it, especially with a Nick Murphy top turret on it.:D

    Positive comments so far then. Mine's on a PT too Mike. I might have to give it a whirl especially as the butt hook off my EV2 will fit straight on the ProTarget.

    I have both mine Bushnell 8-32x40 milldot
    on both my Walthers and love them ;);)

    Only shoot FT and get on very well with the rangefinding.

    Hi Chris the bushnell scope is a top scope the only fault! which is not really a fault! is its not a sidewheel rangeing scope so you don't get very good gaps for your yard markings.
    Have you thought about the Burris 8-32x40 slighty better glass.

    As a big burris fan id say that the glass is not quite as good as the 4200 to be honest (i own both). Where the burris scores is that it is easy to distinguish between 50-55 yards as the gaps are bigger and it has a greater field of view. There are a lot of tired burris scopes out there as they have not been made for years, most lose their clicks on the top turrets. The 4200 is a safe bet!!

    Neale who has posted on this thread went from a leupold mk4 (the best one i have ever seen/used) to the bushnells so they cant be that bad!!

    Hello

    Hello pal I've been useing a bushnell 8x32 on my steyr for about 8 month and it's very good, the turret needs replacing and you have to work at range finding above 50 yard's put a very good scope, dave

    I've got two of them, one on the Steyr and one on my boinger...HW77/97 depending on which one i'm using, i've owned them for more years than i care to remember and personally can't fault them. They are a scope you have to spend time getting used to though, as mentioned, the gaps aren't the widest so some shooter input is required until you get used to them but if you stick with it it'll reward you with excellent rangefinding and clarity in all temperatures and lighting conditions.:)
