Hey, I have heard a few things on OT lately about the eye relief on the Bushnell 4200 Elite being, (cough), less than optimum.

 

The Bushnell web site states that the scope only has 3.3" of eye relief. 

 

 

Anybody shoot one of these on a high recoil rifle?? Any problems??

I recently tried it on a .375 without a problem.

I have two of the 2.5-10 x 50 4200s, one on a Steyr SBS in 270, the other on a Steyr SBS in 7mm Rem Mag. I am a stock-creeper, and have the scars to remind me. Both these scopes have bit me, but in each case I was in an awkward position while hunting-- shooting left-handed with the 270 (eye placement is a problem) and in cramped quarters with the 7mm. Neither of these scopes has presented a problem from the bench. The only scope I own that hasn't bit me is a Leupold Vari-X III in 3.5-10 x 50. The extra .7inch seems to be a safety margin for me. On the other hand, I am not beautiful to start with, and the cuts don't hurt when a deer is on the ground. I have been really impressed with the low-light performance of the 4200. I have the firefly, but really can't use it legally- by the time it is needed, it is way past any definition of "daylight hours".  I got one of the 4200s from SWFA this year, and got the "free" Bushnell gear bag for $15. It may not be worth the claimed $150, but for $15 it is a really nice piece of gear. Don't let SWFA's listed price scare you off, they will match any legitimate price, and are good people to deal with. Hope this helps.
