Looking into getting a scope for my XL7C 25-06. I put a cheap $40 Tasco on it because it was there and I'm getting about 2 1/2" groups. I don't want a $300 scope. I have a $125 6-24x Tasco on my 220 swift and it is awsome, very clear and shoots dime size groups. I have a Bushnell on my 300 win mag and even though it shoots good groups, it is VERY unclear and you need both hands to change the power. I'm thinking about finding a used Bushnell Elite 3200. I'm seeing them on E-bay for the $150 range.
I know, I know. The thing is I've used several Leupolds and I'm just NOT that impressed for the price difference. I think an Elite is every bit as clear. I just wanted some other opinions from people that don't buy into the "you get what you pay for" theory.
There's two definitions of cheap.
one is cheap and the other is "less expensive".
I assure you devon..buy it once and that's the end of the story..and you will be impressed 5 years, 10 years, 20-30 and 40 from now...lifetime warrenty but doubt if you'll ever use it...believe me, you get what you pay for these days!!
