YEEHA ZEROED IN BOYS, Ready to go friday. I'm going nutz counting down the days. I finally got my scope hitting nice 1/2in groups right above the bully. 8 shots almost on top of eachother at about 100yrds maybe 90 cause the pit ends but I think shes ready. I can always make adjustsments off that when Im in the field, atleast I know I'm good to 100.
I love the scope, and I know what you mean saskie this was the last one the guy had in the 6-18x50. He had tonnes of 3-9x40 and 3-9x50's but I wanted this particular scope.I had tryed one out last year and thought it was amazing and the DD feature allowed ample light for the conditions I get stuck sometimes hunting in. If I met someone and they asked me how the scope was I would just let them try mine and they could tell me.
Have used Bushnell Banner Scopes for years and have not had a bad one yet, have 2 Dusk to Dawn, one 3x9x56mm and a 6x24x50mm and both work great. have one on a 270 and the other on a 243, they get the job done at a reasonable price.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
