Scope for 450 Bushmaster

Postby BriansOW on Mon Mar 04, 2013 11:15 am

I just got a 450 Bushmaster and I am wanting to set it up to go hunting. I am looking for a scope with decent magnification. I have picked out 3 scopes that I think would work good but let me know what you think. I am shooting Hornady 250 grain FTX bullets at around 2200fps.

#1 Leupold UltimateSlam 3-9X40 #113879
#2 Nikon Inline XR 3-9X40 #6792
#3 Nikon Slughunter 3-9X40 #6791

I have a Slughunter and an Ultimate Slam on guns. If I was to do it again, the Nikon Inline XR would be the one to go with. The Leupolds will prove to be the toughest, but the useable reticle on the XR, in combination with Nikon's amazing Spot on Technology website and a very good product at a reasonable price make the XR my choice. All will work well, but reticles are getting more practical all the time, and Nikon's are the most user-friendly!
