Considering putting a Bushnell 4200 1.5-4X24 on a Ruger Ranch Rifle .223.
Wondering if anyone has done this and would offer comments / advice.
Thanks in advance...John
...............From one John to another!!... Do you have to have the illuminated reticle that this 4200 has? If not, then just go with the lesser expensive Leupy 1.5-5x20 VX3, which are now going for a reduced price.
This particular 4200 weighs 15 oz. The 1.5-5x20 VX3`s are almost 37% lighter @ only 9.5 oz. 5.5 oz may not seem like alot, but when you do alot of hiking, climbing, shouldering and shooting over periods of time, there is a noticeable difference. You also have more reticle choices to choose from the the VX3`s.
I don`t have a 223 Ruger Ranch, but I rotate this Leupy between two somewhat higher,,
,, recoiling rifles. Although you gain more eye relief with the VX3, in your case with the 223, it`s not an issue. As a former 4200 owner, the glass quality between the two will be hardly noticeable if at all.
Also, no one can beat Leupold`s customer service.
