Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent optic for the price
probably the clearest and sharpest scope I've owned, if the price had been a bit lower and if that sticker hadn't been present, who wants a silver met...

by high plains drifter, from United States, WI Written on January 12, 2015

  • None
Best Used for:
  • all conditions
Would recommend: Yes

Fantastic Scope; looks great in gloss black!

by Michael, from United States, IN Written on January 10, 2015
I have been a Bushnell fan for a number of years, mainly purchasing the lesser priced Banner and Trophy models, which are great scopes for the money. Last year I bought my first Elite model and was so impressed that I just recently bought a 2nd one. The first is mounted on a Remington 760 chambered in .35 Remington and the second is now mounted on a Remington 700BDL in 30-06. The gloss black looks fabulous with the deep, rich bluing on the two guns. Putting that aside, the optics are great and I have had zero issues of any sort. I am convinced that dollar for dollar, the Bushnell Elite is competitive with any brand at any price. Pull the trigger on this scope and you will not regret it. An Optic Planet's quick shipping and great customer service is second to none....
Pros:
  • Great looks and performance
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Hunting/Bench rest
Would recommend: Yes

Great for the money

by br, from United States, KY Written on October 31, 2014
Great scope, good quality and not too expensive. Seem swell constructed and intuitive to use. I was used to the mil spec sight, but the retical X is great. I'm new to this, but the scope came highly recommended....

Great value scope

by Santa, from United States, WA Written on October 13, 2014
Just sighted rifle in at the range today using this scope so, this is fresh.
Mounted on a "new" .280 Remington MDL 700 SF CDL Limited Edition using Weaver aluminum bases (that's all Sportsman's had and I'm running out of time) and Warne steel rings.
Laser bore sighted night before.
First shot on paper at 25 yards at 3 power but, took seven more to bullseye.
Moved on to 100 yards at 9 power which took an additional five rounds to not quite bullseye but, close enough with all that was going on at the range today.
Popped off a couple rounds at 200 yards to test the DOA 600 reticle concept since it's the first time I've used anything but crosshairs, Multi-X style in Remington line, and was a little disappointed that the two shots were on line but about six and eight inches low.
I had sighted in a second rifle today as well and time was getting short so I didn't get this resolved to my liking. Probably not a scope issue but I will figure out later. In the mean time I can use the knowledge of the ballistics for my ammo, like always, to compensate.
Loved the focus and clarity of the glass. Not a bright day but, not as bad as can get and targets really stand out. Can ALMOST get by without bino's or spotting scope at 100 yards just using the scope. Didn't get to test the coating for rain but, I've looked through a buddies scope with that treatment and am impressed with the view through a wet objective lens which happens a lot in Western Washington.
Right now, perfectly ha...

Done messin' around!

by Zimm, from United States, KS Written on August 29, 2014
Superior price and service. Owned dozens of scopes. Many brands. Tried just about all. The elite is as bright as any. Eye relief is good. Scopes adjustments are true. Body is as tough as any. Mounting dimensions are more than generous. Reticle is as good as any. For the money, I would rank them the best. You can spend more and get practically nothing for it. This scope does it all and a good warranty to back the product. I quit messing around with scopes. This scope will not disappoint. Looks good on long or short actions and a finish to match any gun. To get better you will need to spend WAY more dollars. 5 star value for a lifetime of hunting!...

GREAT DEER RIFLE SCOPE

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on August 21, 2013
This is a great light weight rifle scope. It is clear and bright and is a good value. It has held its zero after several boxes of ammo from my .308. I have bought other top brand scopes that are more expensive in the past 20 years, but this scope is on par with any of them at a much lower price.
Pros: Clear and bright optics. Made in Japan.
Cons: None so far...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Scope For The Money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 31, 2013
Great scope for the money.
It offers clear optics and durability. It's on my primary hunting rifle and I purchased second one to put on my backup rifle. I'll get a third one for my son's rifle.
You can pay more money but won't get much better quality.

Pros: Clear optics and low price
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Pretty good

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, LA Written on February 9, 2013
I bought this scope on sale and cannot complain about it. It is a good scope and is bright enough for hunting, even in low light. I own Nikons, and passed on a Nikon for this scope based on a fairly small price difference. Must say, I won't do it again. I would recommend this scope to anyone as it is good, just not as good as I had hoped.
Pros: Good looking, easy to use
Cons: Not as clear and bright as I expected...
Would recommend: Yes
