Greetings new here first post so forgive the usual boring question.

Tonight I mounted a new Burris Sig Select 3-12X44 on a Kimber Montana 270. I've only had Burris scopes and no other brands but I've been happy with the Burris stuff although the Fullfield IIs seem lackluster, can't describe it maybe a little dark. Anyway I want to put something else with a big FOV on a new Rock River Predator Pursuit AR-15 for coyote calling especially when they sneak in close and surprise me and I thought that a Bushnell 4200 2.5-10X40 would be the ticket. Live in a small town where I can't look at a scope unless Walmart has it so I was looking for a big thumbs up here and I'll go for it.

Love this site.

The Bushnell gets the thumbs up from me. 4200 elite will spoil you.

I don't have the 2.5-10, but the 3-9x40 has excellent glass. The Bushnell's are a great value and are a benchmark for the mid-range scopes. I don't think you will be disappointed.
It looks like they're coming with a free flash light right now.

Gotta agree. I have 3 of the 4200 2.5x10's  and a 2.5x10x50. They have proved bulletproof , have excellent clarity for the money, and the rainguard has saved a least one hunt.

thanks for the responses, I'm going to order one today. I'm in New Mexico and it doesn't rain much but I lost a close in shot this season due to rain.

Wow you actually shot your scopes.  That is what I call a torture test.  Wink
