I'm curious as to which series Bushnell scope you chose, 3200, 4200, 6500 ?I don't have any Zeiss scopes but do own a bakers dozen of Leupold rifle scopes. Recently I jumped ship to the Bushnell Tactical scopes for my varmint rifles. I saved a bunch of money to the tune of over $600 dollars verses Leupold scope with the same tidbits.
took stock of your advice and had a look at a 3-15x50 weaver tactical.was really impressed. digging a bit deeper from a person i know that repairs scopes,i was informed they use wire c/hairs that have in his opinion the best retention set up,strong tube that is bullet proof. a big improvement on the old plastic skin lens of years ago. just goes to show that if you ask on this forum, you do get some really good feed back from people.you cant beat personal opinions p.s. i did buy a 3200 elite once and wasnt impressed with the heap of parrallax error,but then again it was cheap.thanks to all that replied, as it was all very informative feedback.Recenty I've purchased two of the discontinued Nitrex by Weaver TR2 scopes from www.natchezss.com One is a 4-20x50 SF with pullup turrets and after rebate and shipping charge, the final cost was $279. Don't let the low price fool you, it had a Retail price of about $670 at one time. Note it is a Nitrex by Weaver and basically same scope in Weaver line is a Super Slam model that retails for over $800. Japanese optics in the TR2 is outstanding....I've had both Leupold and Zeiss Conquest owners view thru my scope and critique it. General consensus was the Nitrex glass was just as clear and bright as their scopes, at all powers, and had positive comments about other features of the scope.
You might want to give the Nitrex scope at Natchez Shooters Supplies a look. Its a heck of a scope for a heck of a price.
