I took my new elite 4200 3-12x44 MD IR out, before purchasing a canted base for my flat top DPMS 308B, I wanted to check my elevation adjustment after sighting in. To my surprise I was zeroed at 13 Mils up, and have over 20+ mils available in the up direction.

Bushnell says this scope has 80 MOA or 22 mils ?

So to check I cranked the knob up from zero 20 mils, then held under with my reticle at 20 mils and acquired the target. At 100 yds aiming into the dirt around the 50 yd line-  Trying this again at 15, 10, and 5 mils it worked fine. I emailed bushnell but no response yet.

I also have 35 MILS of windage adjustment? I was not able to check how much of that is useable but I am zeroed at about 12 mils right, so I have over 20 more Mils right to adjust. After dialing for windage and elevation multiple times the scope always returned to zero.

Has anyone seen this? Did I get an oddball in my favor or should I be concerned? I would have expected to see some reviews stating the scope had around 30Mils or over 100 MOA if this was common?

Quien Sabes?   Bushnell's and several others are notorious for not having much internal adjustment so you picked a winner.

I am under the impression you have 22 mils total travel.  This means 11 mils up and 11 mils down.

If it works, don't mess with it.
