Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this scope.  Looks great on paper - 6X magnification range, side focus, long eye relief, ballistic reticle, illumination, and a lifetime warranty.  All for about $300.

I don't mind spending more (you would have to spend A LOT MORE) to get a Leupold/Vortex/Burris/etc scope with all these features, just not sure what I would be getting.

You would be getting better glass for one thing. Better glass trumps magnification every time. More magnification magnifies the defects of the lens more than the target. My experience it the lower end scopes have a lit of tunneling.  When you get up to the Elite or above then the Bushnell quality improves a lot.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

IMO they are excellent scopes for hunting and range work. I have the 6x24-50 and could not be happier and with the no fault lifetime warranty you can't beat it. I was locked in with leupold but just tried out the Bushnell and it changed my mind.
