Hey guys, I saw this scope and wanted some opinions on it. 
Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 4.5-14x44
http://swfa.com/Bushnell-45-14x44-Legend-Ultra-HD-Rifle-Scope-P53010.aspx
It looks like a heck of a bargain. 
It (or another similar to it) will go on my new Ruger American Predator 6.5CM.  It will be a hunting rifle for ranges from 50-200 yards.  I'll be hunting mostly from a blind near right of ways.  I'll also want to take it to the range and air it out.  My thoughts on the magnification range is 4-6 for hunting and everything higher for paper punching. 
If this scope is a dud, what are some other choices in the up to $400 price range? 

Thanks

I own three of these.  I bought one when Bushnell was doing the try it for a year and if you don't like it they would give you your money back.  To me, it seems equal to my Nikon Monarch 4-12x40. I actually like it better because the reticle is a little heavier.  Liked it well enough that I bought two more.  Like you, to me, for the price it's a heck of a good scope.  Rainguard coating is a plus.  Argon purged.  I checked with Bushnell regarding light transmission and according to the rep it is a about 92%, which is just over the 91% published for the Elite 3500 series.  The only drawback to me is the overly long length.

I've not used one but I have used one of these -

http://swfa.com/Vortex-4-12x40-Viper-Rifle-Scope-P11230.aspx

It was superb for the price and very usable in the field and the occasional trip to longer distances at the range when I wanted to play.   I'm actually thinking of getting another for a 223 WSSM I just picked up.


But like you said for the price it look very appealing  Maybe I should try it out to compare.

Forgot about one -

I still have 2 of these and they are exceptionally good scopes for the money.  I know they perform well and have always tracked great.   About the same price as the bushnell.   Maybe someone has had both an can chime in.

Thanks for the input.  I have more to scour over before I make a decision.  I noticed the Vortex and Minox don't have a parallax adjustment.  Isn't that important for my intended range use of 50-200 yards?  I have been tossing out scopes from the running based on this.  Am I wrong?

Here are others I have been looking at.  How do these stack up?

http://swfa.com/Burris-45-14x42-Droptine-Rifle-Scope-P68089.aspx

http://swfa.com/Leupold-3-9x40-VX-1-Riflescope-P51829.aspx

I have also been mostly looking at scopes with ranging reticles of some sort.  All the scopes I have use BDC or mil dot or mil quad and I am very used to it and like the idea of holding over for longer range when the turrets are low, capped hunting type.  Should I throw that criteria out?  Is a standard duplex reticle adequate for my ranges and caliber?

Thanks
 Sorry I can't seem to make the links work

Never had an issue with parallax on either.  


The minox holder reticle has worked well for me on my needs. Here it is -
