Have just bought a used 308 Norma Mag based on a P-17 Enfield action.  It currently has a Bushnell 3.5-10X40 Scope Chief mounted.  I wish to use this combo for mulies, white tail, elk, moose, black bear, and the occasional grizz draw.  I am lucky enough to live in northern B.C. Canada so I do have the oppoturnity to hunt these critters right out my front door.   I know nothing about the scope mounted on the rifle and was wondering if anyone has info about the scope. Is it up to the task?  Would you choose a Bushnell Elete 4200 with rain guard in the same magnification over  the scope I am currently using and would there be any gain for the money spent?

 

Cheers and Happy Hunting: Eaglesnester

Well, I have not researched that model for you, but, what I would do, is take it to the range and see how it shoots.  If it shoots well, I think the mag. range is appropriate for what you want to do and I would keep it on the rifle.  If not, buy a Bushnell 4200, Nikon Monarch, Burris Sig. Select or Sightron SII in a similar mag. range and you will be happy.  If it works well and the optics are good, no need to throw it out.
