Im looking at the 3200 5-15-50 AO in the bushnell and the FFll 4.5-14-42
 
Which of these sights would u get. My buddy has the 3200 and its very clear and i like it. But i own the burris bino's and there very clear as well. Just would like some feedback. Thanks

Are you set on those two?  If not what price range are you looking to stay under and what ranges do you shoot?  Whats the guns purpose as well?
 
i think between the two its a toss up with maybe a slight edge to the bushell only because of the rainguard feature

you dont really need that much power to pull off a 300yd shot.

Of the two I still stand with the edge to Bushnell but if you look at others I'd pick any of these over the two you already listed

i see the vipers a lot on here. I'll research these a little and give me some more feedback. Would a 40 be better than a 50? I have never had a 50mm lens

the glass quality on the viper will trump the objective size of the 3200

unless you hunt after dark i dont see any need for a 50mm. i have a 3x9 4200 and a 2x7 viper and they are just fine before sunrise and after sunset.
now if you use some of the higher power stuff like you mentioned above, then a 50mm is more needed for the higher powers to be functional.

The viper and 4200 have very similar glass and I would say either is good.  I'm not a huge fan of bushnell because of the poor customer service record in teh event you ever need to use them.  Bar far the best warranty company i can say is vortex.  no questions ask.  LIFETIME TRANSFERABLE warranty

if you can break a 4200 i would be very surprised. mine so far has survived the .375H&H and the .300wby. but bushnells cs dept does have a lot to be desired, where as vortex's cs dept is the best in the biz. and they make a tough damn scope too.

I also like the 3200 for the rain guard, but either are a fine by me and both offer decent optics for the money.

IMO if you go over about 10x go with a 50mm objective.  If you go over 16x then 56mm would be better.  I prefer them nice and bright.  Bad thing about those big objective is you have to mount them higher.  Guess that is why 90% of my scopes are 10x or less.   Big Grin

I actually have all the scopes on your top contenders list... except my viper is a 2-7.... not counting warranty/ customer service,  my personal favorite is the 4200.  just my .02 Big Grin
