so this was right as the sun started to come up this morning...mountains are 7-10 miles id guess...

45x power...



15x power...



this is a really bad pic at 100yds...i measured out 4 lines at 3.6" and the reticle lined up exactly...like i say this is a really bad pic because when looking through the scope its crystal clear...





so the knob/dial closest to the body is the power...the second one back is just the index for the power and is stationary...3rd dial is the focus 4th is the reticle focus...like i said its set up kinda odd or seems odd after using a vortex for so long but after about 5mins playing this morning in the field i was pretty comfortable with the adjustments and hand placement....



i paid $520 bucks for this scope and am very happy with it at this point...i dont see much(if any)difference between it and the $850 dollar vortex viper HD i have so IMHO the bushnell is the better of the two because it has a FFP mil reticle,is about $400 bucks cheaper(if you look around i think you can find one for about $450)and has the same warranty....even if the glass is a tiny bit better on the vortex i still think the bushnell is the better deal.

the difference might be if you were sitting glassing for hours but personally if i were doing that id pay the big money for some real high end jap or euro glass.

forgot to add...the focus is VERY fast and does not have a fine tune like the vortex does so it also takes i few minutes to get use to...the dials are firm but very smooth and you can make adjustments without disturbing the scope much and i imagine with a higher end weighted tripod it would be even better.
the scope comes with a pretty nice padded nylon cover and a carry strap...i dont care for the covers as they always seem to be in the way.

Nice write up, thanks. Spotting scope is one item I don't have in decent quality. Having a mil reticle would be handy as anyone I shoot with has a mil reticles also. I may have missed this but did you buy locally?

no i got it and most of the optics i buy from the guys over at bear basin outfitters in concord...you can find them for about $450 if you check around.
and like i said earlier in the thread i looked around and made a few calls about mil reticle spotters and one of the techs at vortex told me about the bushnell saying it was a fantastic spotter...he was right.

us optics makes a spotter i was looking at as well but i didnt want to spend $1000 bucks on something i dont use that much...if your looking for a spotter with a mil reticle im pretty sure youd be real happy with the bushnell...if looking for something a little more high end look at the US optics and the leupold mark 4 tactical.

i dont shoot paper past a 100 yards...that said the bushnell is a great(for the price)spotter for steel and ranging misses and targets but if your looking for a spotter that can pick up bullet holes in paper at long-er distances or if your going to be glassing for hours(like hunting)there are better scopes...i can clearly see impacts on steel at 850yds.

dont get me wrong i really like my bushnell but i bought it because it has a reticle in it not so much because it has high end glass.
