I am going to put one of these on my Savage 10FP.
I currently have a simmons scope but this has trouble holding zero and is a bit dark, so it's time for an upgrade. (I do fine with no adjustments, and in the middle of the day.)

There is a local guy at a gunshop as well as the local club, who has the SS10x42 and tells me to save my money and get this scope, don't even bother looking at the Elite 3200.  However, he admits to having never seen the Bushnell scope, he just swears by his scope, and fair enough.  BTW, my father in law was a former sniper himself, and refuses to look past his Unertl or Mitchell scopes.  But he says that if Mike says something, he knows his stuff, so I should trust his opinion.

I have looked through both scopes but couldn't do it side by side, so it's hard to say which was brighter, clearer, etc.
To be honest, I thought the brightness, clarity, etc was comparable to more expensive Burris and Leupold scopes that I could compare it to.
I like the fact that Bushnell has such a great warranty, it's considerably cheaper (makes a big difference to me)
From this forum and from I guy I trust the SS10x42 sounds like a great scope, and perhaps I should save up a little longer and get this one.

Anybody that knows both scopes, please give me your thoughts, how do they compare?  Is the SS worth saving up for or will I be happy with the 3200?

The SuperSniper is the better, but for what kind of shooting?

could be the bushy is all you need, I am making an assumption that your talking about target type, and tactical, so I would say the SS. I own a 4200 elite, and a Super, but the 4200 uses better glass than either of the two you mention here. I am fairly certain that the SS and 3200 are optically simialar. The SS is just to me a better scope.

Go to the Tbone scale using the search function.
