Burris Sig. select 4-16x44 ballistic plex vs. Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x50 duplex.  Mounting on custom Winchester 7stw for medium to long range deer and possibly antelope hunts.  I have the Burris 4-16 electro-dot and really like this scope.  I have read where the new Signatures are improved over the old ones.  I see where the adj. housing has been moved back and the parr. adj. knob and magnification knob is different, but is the any difference optically?  I like the adjustment dials on the Bushnell as to the fact that they are semi-target turrets and resettable, but how would these two compare in clarity and light transmission as the price are in the same ballpark.  I had posted a question about the Burris Euro Diamond and would really like the 3-12x50 with #4 illuminated reticle but someone posted that this scope was not of the quality of the Sigs. and Black Diamond.  I would really like to know why this is as to they are so similiar and supposedly use the same glass and coatings.

Off Burris' site:

 

After long, hard consideration and a lot of work, we’ve upgraded our famous Signature Series to present the new Signature Select lineup.

Many of the enhancements are ergonomic for increased versatility and easier operation. For example, we moved the adjustment turret back on the 1.5X-6X, 3X-10X, 3X-12X, and 4X-16X to a more central location to give you more flexibility in mounting options.

Then we added deep relief grooves on the power ring and parallax adjust ring to provide a firm, no-nonsense grip. We integrated a shooter-viewable, easy-to-grip power ring with the eyepiece and included a non-slip ring of rubber on the internally focusable eyepiece ring.

We haven’t ignored optical and mechanical improvements either.

Every surface of every premium quality lens is fully Hi-Lume multi-coated. The Signature Select internal lenses are some 65% larger in surface area than a great many other 1" scopes on the market, and in fact significantly larger than most scopes with 30mm outer tubes. Several Signature Selects boast a versatile four-times magnification range and a generous 3 1/2" to 4" of eye relief. The finger-adjustable, shooter- viewable adjustment dials are all resettable.

These all new high performing beauties will turn more than a few heads in camp this year.

Both the Black Diamond and Euro Diamond are optically superior to the Signature Select according to Burris.
