First Range Session with Bushnell Elite 3200

I purchased a Bushnell Elite 3200 with the Firefly reticle for my muzzleloader and got an opportunity to take it to the range today. The scope's adjustments were very accurate. The scope took the brunt of 110 grains of Blackhorn 209 with a 250 grain Barnes T-EZ. The optics are very clear. The Firefly reticle is a thick black reticle in normal shooting light. I did test the reticle at home. It takes a bright LED flashlight charge for about two minutes. The reticles glow like the glowing hands on a watch. I highly recommend this scope for anyone looking for a scope in the $200 price range. I also have a Bushnell Elite 4200 with standard reticles. I am not an expert so I really can't tell much difference between the 3200 and 4200 in normal shooting light, but I did get an opportunity to hunt with the 4200 in low light and the optics are excellent.

I own both 3200 and 4200 Elite scopes as well and feel they are a real value/$$$. I have a couple of the FF reticles as well and I, too, like them both in low light and in bright. I am a fan of heavy reticles and the FF reticle is a nice bold one for regular daytime usage. I'm not sure just how many of these scopes I have now, but it's well over a half dozen, with nary a complaint on any of the bunch. Good scopes!
They are really nice scopes! I have a Elite 3200 3-10x40 on my Ruger M77 MKII .25-06 and I'm very happy with the quality of this scope. Very clear, lighting is great, no complaints whatsoever. I will be taking it off that gun and putting it on my Browning BLR .300 WSM to upgrade the Bushnell Banner that is on it right now and I'm putting an Elite 3200 5-15x50 on my .25-06.
