Bushnell Introduces New DOA Riflescope Reticle With Rack Bracket
 

Bushnell introduces the new DOA™ (Dead On Accurate) riflescope reticle that provides both hold-over aiming points and trophy estimation of both whitetail and mule deer. There are two DOA reticles available on a variety of Bushnell riflescopes - the DOA 600™ and DOA 250™. Both are etched glass reticles that are easy to see in any light condition and are unaffected by recoil.

The DOA 600 is calibrated for centerfire rifles with aim points calibrated at 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 yards. The DOA 250 was designed for use with in-line muzzleloaders (with magnum loads) with aiming points at 100, 150, 200 and 250 yards.

Trophy hunters will appreciate the new Rack Bracket feature of the DOA reticle. To estimate the antler size of a potential trophy deer, with the scope at full power each aiming point has a Rack Bracket reference line that measures 24 inches (the average distance between the tips of a mule deer's ears) at the indicated yardage. The Rack Bracket hash marks on each crosshair indicate 17 inches or the average width from ear tip to ear tip for whitetail deer.

Range estimation is based on 100-yard zero and average ballistics of centerfire and in-line muzzleloaders. One MOA aiming points provide greater measure of accuracy at all indicated ranges.

The new reticles will be available on the following Bushnell riflescopes:
Muzzleloader-DOA 250
Trophy 3-9x40 w/ 6" eye relief
Trophy 3-9x40 w/ 6" eye relief Realtree AP

Centerfire-DOA600
Trophy 3-9x40
Trophy 4-12x40
Elite 3200 3-9x40
Elite 3200 3-9x50

Elite 3200 4-12x40
Elite 6500 2.5-16x42
Elite 6500 4.5-30x50

  THANKS for the post rl.  ALWAYS nice to see the new toys!  I really have no use for BDC reticles and that one looks kinda "busy" but it'll be interesting to hear from guys who use those type.

Appears they are trying to compete with the Zeiss Rapid Z reticles.

I was just looking at Bushnell's website at the new scopes.  The 2.5-16 X 42 scope with the DOA reticle has a mounting length of 5 inches....the measurement from back end to front end of the rings on my Winchester Model 70 is 5 1/8 inches.  Now why would they do a dumb thing like that??  If a scope company is going to create a scope--why don't they make the tube long enough to fit a standard 30-06 length action??  Why miss the whole boat by 1/8 of an inch???   Eek

They did a similar thing back when the scopes that are now the Bushnell Elites were still called Bausch & Lomb. They offered 4x back then that was one of the best in the world: great optics, super-tough and weighing 10 ounces. The tube was about 1/8" too short to fit in the standard Ruger 77 rings on the .30-06-length action.

They did it upside down........if they had put the longer bars on the bottom, you could use them for windage.

I was thinking the same thing Trigger.  Looks like this one will give you elevation, but not windage.
