I have a Bushnell elite 3200 on a dpms panther 308.  I really wanted a Millett when I purchased the rifle but it was during the semi auto scare just after the new administration took office, but there was none to be found.  Even on line.  I have recently found one in stock at a local gun shop and they said they would trade with me.  Since using the Bushnell, I have grown to like it.  But I am still curious about the Millett.  Any suggestions or comments about both scopes.

  WELCOME to OT!
 
  I've only had dealings with two Millets. One of them and a 3200 were on .300 WSM's. The Millet didn't make it and the 3200 is still on the rifle.  I wasn't impressed with either Millet. In all fairness though it's been probably 10yrs ago so maybe they've improved.

What did you not particularly like about the Millett?  Thank for the welcome I am new to all forums and there is a lot to learn.

  As I said it's been maybe 10yrs since then but both were not very good optically with distortion around the edges.  The one that didn't make it?  The front lense fell out while sighting in.  The guy had won the rifle(Browning w/scope)so traded the participating dealer for a Weaver.
  The 3200's have been around a long time and have earned a well deserved rep for being tough.
