I'm new to this forum but have been reading past posts for several weeks. I recently purchased a Weatherby Vandguard SS sub moa 300 Win Mag and am looking for a scope. I like eveything I've heard and read about the Bushnell 4200's. My question is do I need to be worried about eye relief with that scope on a 300 Win Mag. That paticular rifle weighs 7 3/4 lbs. Bushnell lists the eye relief at 3.3 inches. Similar Leupolds and Zeiss Conquests have at or near 4 inches. I have no problem spending more money than the 4200's cost, but they sound like a more than adequate scope for the money and my needs. Any input will be greatly appretiated.

Cheaptrick thanks for all that info. To say I'm computer challenged is an understatement, and I have no idea how you put that on your post, or the search thing. But I will learn! Thanks again.
