Bushnell Rifle Scope Review I have owned a Bushnell scope for ever well over twenty years except they now call it Bausch and Lomb. Well they have brought back the line of Bushnell also not sure what the company was doing but still a great scope.
Bushnell Rifle Scope Review
Bushnell Rifle Scope Review first I owned a Bushnell scope chief it was on my .257 Roberts. The Bushnell Scope Chief was an awesome scope. I used it for deer hunting and just practicing shooting. With the .257 I could shoot all day and hit what ever I tried for on a good day. I even dropped it off the back of my Arctic cat sled.This was at speed, and bent the rear optics down I bent it back over time. It still shot good, not as good but ok. I finally shot the gun out, and had and hard time getting it to shoot tight groups under an inch. I took it to a friend, and had the barrel pillar bedded. Tight bedded to the stalk it shot better. I sold it after that and never heard about the gun or scope again.
Bushnell Rifle Scope Review I now own as a back up scope a Bausch and Lomb Elite 3500. I have this mounted on my new seven mil. mag. This is a semi bull barrel twenty six inch barrel that should shoot like nothing I have ever owned at long range. I have yet to get it set up, and find the round the gun likes. It will take some hand loading to get the kind of accuracy I want. I would set it up before taking it to a long range session of shooting. I hunted moose with the gun and scope this year but could not walk well enough after a foot operation. I am not ready to out run the moose yet. Normally before hunting I scout ahead of time. Then when hunting just wait for the moose to come into the open. I was in a cast this year, so I never got the scouting done at all. It is no fault of the scope or rifle, I just need to get healthy. I will need to get my reloading bench and everything set up first. The best thing I found out about this scope the Bausch and Loumb 3500 is it has an adjustable objective lens on the front.
I never used it or knew what the adjustable objective did because I lost the scope box with the distructions. I was hunting in the flat land of north eastern BC in the evening when I run into bad scope conditions. My scope blanked out it just went white. Well I had not seen this very often in the mountains only for a few minutes some days in odd light conditions. Well I got playing with the adjustable objective lens and found I could still dial the scope in, and see a deer’s head and horns. It was only in the center of the scope, but it worked and if the horns were big enough the scope would pay for itself very fast. That’s what I found out for my Bushnell Rifle Scope Review.
