2009 Riflescope Rating Scale
I have read numerous posts from guys that love there 4200 and guys that love there vipers, but not many have owned both for a true comparison. All this tells me is they are both good scopes.
With the sale price now on the Bushnell 4200 elite, they are directly in line price wise with the Vortex Viper. 6.5-20 Viper is $399.http://swfa.com/Vortex-65-20x44-Viper-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P11231.aspx The 4200 elite 6-24 is $389 http://swfa.com/Bushnell-6-24x40-Elite-4200-Rifle-Scope-P252.aspx.
I'm sure some of you guys have actually had them side by side. Could you give me your opinions?
Why do you prefer one over the other? The only thing I own close to these is a 4-16 Monarch. It's a great scope, but it seems to give me tunnel vision effect. That is the kinda of things I would like to hear about. The scope will be used mostly for groundhogs and playing around at the bench.
