IHi,

Iím from Poland, new on this forum, my question is: How good/bad is the Bushnell Holosight? I would like use it on my three-barreled gun for hunting hare, fox, wild boar & deer. What are your experience with the holosight on the rifle and on the shotgun. Thanks in advance for any information.

Ps sorry about my language, Iím much better in polish

 I have a eotech 552 and put it on a armalite ar-10. I have read that they are the same scope. at 100 yards the center dot was not a dot but a diagonal line that stretched from 1 o'clock to 7 o'clock across the 6 inch center circle. I have no idea if  this is an anomally or if they are all like this.

     I have read on this site that people use them effectively at 200-250 yards so they must keep thier circle better than the one I have.

     they are extremely fast at getting on target and mine would work just fine inside of 100 yards on dear.

Thanks c.j. I would like use it mostly for collective hunting, the animals are usually fast running,  and the average distance is 30-50 yards. You say it is fast at getting on target Ė should be perfect for me.

Iím still hungry for more information. Iím surprised,  is it holosight  really so seldom on your weapons, in fact I expect any hunter answer, is it OK for hunting or not. My three-barreled gun   is Merkel - dryling (one 7x65 and two 12/70). If somebody used the holosight for hunting please, spend a minute for a post reply. Thanks.

Most of the holosights are used on combat weaponry.  They are very fast and accurate.  Some competition shooters utilize holosights, but very few American hunters have embraced them.  I think it is a case of it just being something a little too non-traditional for most hunters.

Jednoralski,

In Portugal we use Holosights and Red Dots with good results on running game.
I have a Aimpoint and i think that is one of the best Red Dots.
The Docter Sight and the Bushnell are very good also.

Regards
