Went to a gun show yesterday and today and decided to upgrade all our rifle scopes at home. Decided to get rid off all the Tascos and Bushnells :angry: ( Ill sell em on eBay I guess) and up grade to Nikon. Grubby bought me a pair of Nikon binocs about 5 yrs ago and its taken me this long ( I'm like Bull Durham... I smoke slow) to figger out they are the most superior optics I have ever owned. So I decided to Nikon all our rifles( over time ). Same dealer gave me a twofer deal on a anib 1.5-5x20 for my 3006 and a new 3-9x40 for the mod 70 7mag I am picking up.

When it comes to binos I can't disagree with you. But, when it comes to rifle scopes... Nothing Nikon makes holds a candle to the Bushnell Elite series, IMO. :peace:

I have a Nikon Buck Master on my .300 Win Mag. It's a 3-9X40 and works well for me ever in low light. I'm sure you'll enjoy whatever you have the most confidence in.

I'm like Jerimiah. I have a Bushnell Elite 3200 on my Encore .270 and it's as clear as my son's Burris. It's water proof, fog proof and the lenses are coated with Rain Gaurd. I've hunted with it in all kinds of weather and light and it's always impressed me with it's clarity and light gathering. Wouldn't think of changing it. The Elite series, if I'm not mistaken, was originally made by Bausch and Lomb and Bushnell bought it.

I'm with Marty on this one for scopes Luepold all the way. I stold my sons Zeiss 10x30 binos. The amazing thing about Zeiss and Swarovski binos is the ability to identify the game your hunting at greater distances because the clarity is far superior in low light conditions. I would spend the extra bucks again.

Before you decide against all Bushnells you need to look at the Elite 4200 first. Great scope for the money and I would put it up against Luppy's for clarity. As far as dependabilty mine has spent its life on top of a Rem Sendero "VLS" 300ULtra Mag Top load so far has been 101grs of Retumbo. Tough enough for me.
