Bushnell was awarded a contract in 2008 for spotting scopes used by the US military. My post clearly stated that I was in search of a scope for my hunting rifle. The SWFA rates the Bushnell 4200 elite equal to the Lupy 3 and the Zeiss Conquest series. My reference to Bushnell making optics only was to state that they must make a quality product. I have read many reviews from midwestern guides that praise the 4200 a great scope and one of the best values.I never said it was superior to any other but it fit my needs best. So crawl under the covers with the latest issue of Soldier of Fortune and snuggle up with you favorite scope and have a good one.
How are the 4200s compared to the Monarchs??? Thanks.
wrooster wrote:Ok Kurt, You remind me of what Chief Joseph once said, " Some men speak many words but say nothing ". I had viewed the review on the 4200 long before you put the link up. It was a deciding factor on my purchase of the 4200. Hell they set of an explosive next to it and it came off zero by a half inch but came back in 10 shots. I haven't had a problem with IED's in my hunting fields but I guess you do. I never stated that the Bushnell was better than any other but for the money I felt it was a good deal and would suit my need. And as for being satisfied with pie plate groups at 100 yards my $ 40.00 Simmons has yielded 1 inch groups at that range. If you need a $2000.00 Schmidt and Bender to do that I suggest that maybe you get a better rifle or better yet get lessons from a competent shooter. And as for my reference to using a Remington 1100 trap against the likes of 10K kohlers and Kreighofs was not a 'You get what you pay for" it was to illustrate that even though the 10K guns were crafted better than my Remington the lack of skill of the one pulling the trigger could not be compensated for by having the best gun on the market. My Simmons has held zero fine, It just failed in low light. I do have the money to buy what ever scope I would want but I am a frugal person and care not what emblem is on the hood of my car of label on my clothes or what crest is emblazoned on my scope. And further more, Who gives a &$#* what a bogus idiot like you would think anyway. I bet you rode the short bus to school didn't ya?
