Hello all, I see this is a new scope and it looks very intersting:
Is there any info out there for it yet, like size, weight, eye relief, pictures?
Is this scope actually in stock and ready to ship at SWFA?
 
I'm looking for a good scope to go on a Tikka T3 Varmint in .308, will be used for hunting and target shooting out to 300 yards. I don't really need the target turrets nor the FFP reticle on the new Bushnell but I like the quality (compared with other 4200's at least), magnification range, objective size, and illumination. Other options I am looking at (all 30mm tubes):
Bushnell 4200 2.5-10x50 illuminated
Bushnell 6500 2.5-16x42/50
Burris Fullfield Euro 3.5-10x50 illuminated
Burris Euro Diamond 3-12x50 illuminated
Trijicon 2.5-10x56 illuminated
 
There are lots of good options in the 2.5-10x range, but I was looking for a little more magnification for paper punching. The Elite 6500 2.5-16x looks great and I was nearly ready to buy, but I am also really wanting something with illumintaion for low light hunting. Budget is around the $500-$800 that all of these fall into. Other suggestions?

BTW, please pardon my typos. I wrote it quickly and don't see the button for editing the original post.

I've seen ads for the Bushnell 3-12x44 (tactical)which was Mil dot illuminated FFP with target knobs and side focus. The illumination sits in a bump on the ocular and is listed at 4" eye relief. Pricing is the far side of $650 for all I've seen.
