How's the quality on the Bushnell Elite 3200 Series.  I'm looking at a 4-12x40 for a .22 LR Semi.  Going for around $259.00 with Multi-X reticle and and $325.00 with the Ballistic reticle.  Any other recommendations for that price?  MUST be able to focus in to around 10 meters, and somewhere close to that magnifcation range.

 

What's the diff between the 3200 series and the 4200 series?

 

Thanks guys

Hi; the 3200 has multi-coated lens & 4200 has fully multi-coated lens "better glass"

The 3200 is a 4-12 power & the 4200 is a 4-16 power.

I like the 4200 series for the money, but I had an older 22lr that I did not want to spend that much money on so I bought the Weaver Classic Rimfire Scope for it in the 3-9x32mm with A.O. You can get these for just at $200.00 including shipping. They do have good glass in them and adjust down to 10 meters.

Recently I bought a 3200 model 5156 in 5-15x40.  For the price it is a very nice scope, clear at all power ranges, held zero, and easy to focus.  I decided to mount it on my older Ruger 77 in 257 Roberts for coyotes, deer, and hog hunting.  This scope interested me with the many different features that this particular model has, such as rainguard, firefly, large power range, AO, thick crosshairs, and the better eye relief than what is found in the other 3200 and 4200 scopes.  

My Ruger 77 has always shot well but never that great, usually groups 4 shots around the 1 1/4 inches.  So for fun,  I  decided to load up various loads with Hornady 120 gr HP and go have some fun at the range.  Since the crosshairs on this model are thick I wasn't sure if this was going to be a problem when shooting at targets at 100 yards.  Well it didn't seem to matter once I got use to the scope.  At first I wasn't serious, just wanted to shoot a little,  but my rifle sure got serious, grouping 3 shot groups at 1/2 an inch and another group with a double hole with the third shot almost touching. It seems to prefer 44 grs of IMR 4831 and Fed 210 primers. I really like this rifle scope combination.  With all of the scope's features, a healthy dose of IMR 4831 with Fed 210 primers, this rifle will see some action in the field and soon.
