Scope upgrade advice

 

The gun is a Savage BFVSS in 223.  I will be shooting small nuisance animals.  Nutria (like a small aquatic wood chuck) crows; armadillos (you get the picture).   I am 47 and wear glasses.  Low light is a plus but not the priority.  Most shots will be prone with a bipod; from 50 to as far as the caliber (and shooter) can make clean kills.  I have narrowed it down to these two scopes from reading the forums…..but other suggestions would be helpful.  Both scopes versions have an AO.

 

Thanks  Jim

I just bought the Bushnell 4200 for my Savage 17 HMR. I plan on taking it out this weekend for the first time. If you want, I can let you know how I like it.

I am guessing it is a 4-16x40.  There is no 4-14x in the Elite 4200 line.

Also, if it is a new scope, it shoudl have a Side Focus (SF) rather than an Adjustable Objective (AO).

Generally, between the Grand Slam 4.5-14x40 and Elite 4200 4-16x40, optical quality is similar with Elite 4200 enjoying a slight edge.

For the most part the choice comes down to whether you prefer Eltie 4200's side focus to Grand Slam's adjustable objective and whether the slightly larger amgnification range of the Bushnell is important for you.

koshkin  you are correct on 4x16 and sf vs ao.  Thanks for the input.  Optics GrassHopper is the appropriate title for me.  

Thanks
