Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x40 Reviews
All rise, here comes
the king. The king of riflescopes in the good old
USA that is. The Bushnell Elite 4200 series of
scopes is, in my not so humble opinion, the best value for
the serious shooter. When I say that, I am not in
any disparaging the Swarovski, Zeiss or other premium
rifle scopes. Face it, most of us that work for a
living can only dream of owning a Zeiss. Until now,
a premium scope for most rifle shooters and hunters meant
putting a Leupold on their favorite firearm.
Don’t get me wrong, I always have been and probably always
will be a huge Leupold fan. Now that I have tried the
Bushnell Elite 4200 series, I can no longer call myself
strictly a Leupold man.
My favorite scope has been a Leupold 12X I purchased in 1979
for the princely sum of $249.00. That was a fortune back
then and I saved and agonized over spending that much on a
scope, especially since the Remington 700 ADL (walnut stock)
was only $209. After a decent trigger job, that
rifle/scope combination has been the most accurate rig I have
ever shot. Many thousands of rounds have gone downrange
for targets, cans, rocks, gophers, prairie dogs, coyotes,
skunks, badgers and even a couple of mule deer.
I didn’t think a nicer, more useable scope could be found.

6-24 X 40. Oh Wow. The optics on this scope are
ultra clear, the adjusting knobs are easy to turn and very
precise, especially the power adjustment ring as it is
extremely easy to turn even in cold weather with
The Rainguard coating is just amazing to use. If you
have ever tried to see thru a scope with water or snow drops on
it you will know exactly what I mean. They don’t even
phase the Elite 4200. According to Bushnell, the
Rainguard lens coating actually disperses the condensation into
microscopic specs and you look around them.
Whatever. All I know is I can hunt and see through a
scope now when I couldn’t before.
I put the Elite 4200 on a Savage .223 and have never looked
back. The scope will let me shoot to the full
capabilities of the cartridge (under 400 yards) as well as my
For around $500, this has got to be one of the best values
on today’s market.

Other Customer Elite 4200 Reviews and Comments
"This scope is great. I bought this over a
Leopuld equivalent, and haven't even come close to regretting
that decision. Buschnell offers a fantastic warranty, which
will likely never get used because this scope is very rugged. I
mounted this scope to my Remington 700 and after sighting it in
have taken it a number of times hunting and to the range. It
hasn't shifted at all and I haven't pampered it…" - T.J.
