Hi

Im new to the forum and hope I can get some advice.  I have pretty much decided on a Bushnell Elite for my 7 mag, I chose the Elite for the Rainguard aspect. My problem is should I get the 3200 or the 4200? What are the major differences and advantages/disadvantages between the two? Most of my hunting will be for whitetail, and elk in the same area...Wooded and open draw/canyon shooting.

 

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to The OT!!

 

I would say the 4200 would be the better choice.

Optically speaking, the 4200 will out perform the 3200 substantially.

4200 for sure. The 4200 3-9X40 would be a nice option for not a lot of cash (around $250 or so)

The 4-16X40 is also another nice option but maybe more scope than you need, but 4X at the bottom end is more than fine.

Thank you for the welcome and the information, I was leaning toward the 4200,and the 3200 could be had in a 5-15x50 for not too much money (Im on a limited budget....retired) But if you think the 4200 is the way to go, thats what ill do.

 

Thanks again

+ 1 on the 3-9x40 Elite 4200.I think it'she best value going out there today. I currently own 6 4200' and think they are a  fantastic scope. .

I also have the Elite 4200 in 3x9!!!! From what I understand, it`s possible that Bushnell is discontinuing the 3x9 in the 4200! Why? I have no idea!!!....And, I will tell you that the Elite 4200`s are without a doubt the best scopes on the market for the money....They are equal to Leupold`s VX111 and many say, even better, for less $ as well!!!!!............Also, I did compare the Zeiss Conquest, side by side with the Elite 4200 before my purchase. I could not justify the extra $100 for the Zeiss!.....Anyone out there NOT happy with your Elite???? I doubt it!!!.........................Go with the Elite!!!!

Thank you for the information, The 4200 elite it is! I appreciate your advice, I was referred to this forum by a member of another forum i belong to, he said the members of this forum are pretty much experts on optics, so i trust your judgement.

 

 Thanks

 

 Mike

Varmintcaller,

Besides the 3-9X, the 2.5-10X is an excellent magnification range for deer/elk hunting as well -- great FOV on the low end and all the magnification you'd ever need for almost any conceivable big game hunting on the top end. 

 

The Elite 4200 is a great choice, and you can't beat the price for what you get!
