PRS on a budget: the scope.
The Bushnell Elite Tactical 3.5-21x50 DMR with G2 Reticle scope is an oldie but a goodie if you plan to get started in Precision Rifle Series type of competitions. In terms of price, it's mid range but offers a sturdy and reliable construction, clear target image, crisp reticle image, very easy to read reticle sub tensions and, in my opinion, a perfect magnification range of 3.5 to 21. So why is that a good magnification range? What I discovered from shooting in PRS is that most if not all stages I shot scoped between 15-18 to keep a wide field of view for when fast multiple target acquisition was needed. I tried to do the same thing with another scope I had, scoped in at 30 and I had a very hard time quickly finding my targets. Sure, those turrets are huge and one revolution can be completed after just 50 clics (5.0) but on the other hand, having so much space between each click made each click very easy to feel which I like very much. That G2 reticle is crisp, with numbered sub tensions that use big digits which makes it easy for your eye to find quickly. There is no mistaking each line of that reticle and the Xmas tree sub tensions. Like I said, this Bushnell Elite Tactical 3.5-21x50 DMR is not the youngest kid on the block, but it does the job very well. When friends and other shooters try my rifle, they always comment about how the scope is nice and how that reticle is crisp. So there it is fellow shooters, an old scope still capable of outstanding reliability. By the way, I tested this thing in all weather conditions up here in Canada, I tested the tracking of the turrets and it passed with definite accuracy, has never taken in water and it's rugged as it gets. #bushnell #bushnellelitetactical #prs #precisionrifleseries #precisionscopes
