Just like the topic says Super Sniper Vs Bushnell 6-24x50 side focus
It is going on a savage 243, and I know that the Bushnell is more expensive than the rifle. But I am tired of buying cheap crap and am willing to spend a little more. The rifle has been wearing a Simmons 3-9x40 as it was part of the package deal when I received it as a gift several years ago, and works for the deer hunting that I do. However I am looking to shoot at longer ranges and more accurately, and am looking for more magnification, mill dots, and better quality. Here is how I think it breaks down. Please add to the question marks I have. I am not too worried about the price difference and would rather pay the extra money if I would be happier. Finally if you have any other sub $600 scopes that outperforms then please feel free to add.
SS 10x42 Pro's: 100+ MOA adj; cheaper; ???
Con's: Fixed power; smaller Field of View; ???
Bushnell Pro's: Variable power; more, and less zoom; could use 6, 12, or 24 power to range providing more accuracy
Con's: 40-50 MOA adj; needs to be mounted higher; more expensive ???
PS I hunt on the plains of South Dakota, and will be using this for the small critters too. And I have rifles with iron sights if I ever need to hunt in the woods were shots are <75 yards as I suck at irons, but am working on them.
