Bushnell Elite 1500 vs legend 1200

Postby EPDP99 on Tue Apr 20, 2010 6:43 pm

Looking to see if its worth the wait. I am able to order these through work at discounted prices due to job.

I ordered the elite 1500 and a elite 4200 4-16x50 scope yesterday... scope ships the 21st. but the rangefinder is on back order until mid June. Is it worth the wait for the elite or do I just reorder and get the legend 1200 rangefinder. I dont do tons of hunting and this is the first rangefinder and finally decided to up my optics all around with the scope and addition of the rangefinder. So opinions are wanted. I know the elite has more power and fully coated optics but are these necessary or worth the wait? I also shoot a 7mm-08 with handloads but dont plan on doing any extreme range targets. I'm talking 5-600 yards at most but know the better rangefinders can pick up animals in those ranges vs the lesser distance ones. Let me know...

disregard... by back order they meant discontinued and no longer available. And the next higher up is significantly more expense. They did say I can ship my scope back and spend the difference on a better scope!!
