Need opinions about scope

Postby SwinginLow0910 » Thu Jul 26, 2012 2:19 pm

I am looking into buying a new rifle scope from my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight. I would like to hear opinions on the Bushnell Trophy XLT 3-12x56mm with the Illuminated 4A Reticles. The scope is $299 at my local sporting good store and that is in my price range just need to know opinions.

its a decent scope. I used to have the same scope on a .308. Now i shoot a 25-06 with a redfield scope. I like the redfield better but thats MY opinion

For $300 you should be able to get into Bushnell's Elite line, it's what I run on my 30-06 and I'm very happy with it. As mentioned Redfield also makes excellent scopes for the budget-minded. Do you need the illuminated reticle a specific reason?

Already went and purchased the scope. My daddy wanted it because of the illuminated reticles. He is getting older in age and its becoming hard for him to see the crosshairs in low light conditions. Which 80% of our shots are taken within the last 5 minutes of the hunt. He wanted a scope that didnt have the adjustment on the objective lense, that had a 30mm tube, and illuminated reticle. So I assume that he is going to be happy. I ended up not getting one, I am going to do a little more homework and shopping before I go get something.
