    Hi guys !!

    As you might have noticed, I’m actively looking for a new scope..
    I’ve been thinking about the falcon 5.5-25×50 B20 ret FFP, then I read few bad reviews about it and I don’t want to take the risk to have a milky image or poor glass quality with my new scope (but for the price with all these features, I guess it’s normal to have few drawbacks on these scopes).
    After this one, I thought about the SWFA ss 3-15×44 FFP, but it’s impossible to import it.

    NOW, I think I found the one that’s gonna suit my requirements: Bushnell elite tactical 6-24×50 g2dmr FFP. The high end bushnell glass quality, decent price (can be found at less than 800$), high mag, not too heavy considering the features, lovely ret etc etc…. 
    So guys… just tell me please what you think about it !!! =)
    Happy (and safe) shooting ;)

    I absolutely love mine. I’ve had it on a few rifles and it has worked perfectly on all of them. The glass is really good, the reticle is amazing and it has never needed to re-zeroed. It’s currently on my BSA R-10. I only wish I’d found it sooner.

    Do the turrets match up with the reticle? And do you think it has decent turret tracking? Just wondering.

What range can you focus down to?

Looks promising as a hold-off scope (reticule being FFP, turrets being in MOA). But they seem a bit shy when it comes declaring the range of adjustment on focusing.

    No no no mate… turrets are mil/mil as well as the ret.. i’m pretty sure about it no? =/
    And for the minimal range of focus, it’s 25 yards so 20 meters.. considering you can handle the blur down to 15 meters, I’m not too concerned about it…

    And @KYaigunner , I saw a video on youtube in which the guy was testing the turret tracking out to 100 yards and there were the 3.6 inches at every rotations =]

    You don’t reference the bad Falcon reviews (The old menace range?), though I would suggest you base your opinion on the present. Most people who complain about Milky lenses are highlighting on the fact that all budget manufacturers try to get the most out of scopes at higher magnifications (usually above 18x), irrespective of whether they are Hawke or Falcon. I have a S&B scope that is slightly “milky” under certain conditions.

    If you can, or really want to, go for that price range then I suggest IOR Valdata or Vortex. Check your local dealers for prices. Generally, the more you pay the better you will get. $900 CAN get you something one heck of a lot better than $450. However, unless you are a top class competition shooter, all such seems overkill for an airgun; to me.

Maybe I’m looking at the wrong scope?

    http://bushnell.com/hunting/rifle-scopes/elite-tactical/ers-6-24x-50mm-mil-dot

    Which webpage were you looking at?

    Also don’t forget it’s generally called parallax not focus, so blur is not the issue. Bad parallax means just because the cross hairs are where you want them, the rifle may not be pointing at the right place – that’s a miss. Good parallax means the cross hairs are pointing at the same place the rifle is pointing – that’s a hit.

    Incorrect. It is called focus, with the error in focussing being called parallax.

    @cookie I understand your point about the overkill ^^
    But once a year, I just decide to say “fook my wallet” and buy the high end stuff I’ve been dreaming of for generally the past 2 years ^^ (As a student being a student, I don’t have enough money to buy it whenever I want lol) 
    That’s why for my next airgun (.25 FX, certainly the WD, I’ll just wait for the first reviews) I’ll take an atlas BT46-W17 PSR and all the stuff that comes with it and one of these scopes (I don’t mind putting some more weight on the rifle..)
    At the moment I have a FAC .22 s510 with an MTC SCB Taipan… and I’ve already shot faaaar beyond the limits of the scope that’s why I’d like a fancy one this time ;) ^^

    @cookie the problem with the vortex is their focus range: not less than 50 yards =/ otherwise, you and @travels4fun would choose the sightron over the bushnell?? Why exactly please? 
    Sorry for all the questions, I just can’t make up my mind !! ^^

    Daaaaaamn @travels4fun … that was quick lol ^^
    My other problem is that I’m currently in Turquey for my Erasmus year so I can’t access or even find all the french / european websites because of some kind of restrictions –”
    So thanks a lot for the help ;)

    And my problem with the sightron’s is the same as the vortex one : focus range =/ (40 yards on Sightron and 50 on vortex…. way too much in certain situations !!) Even the 25 yards of the bushnell is near from being to much for my requirements.. but as I said, I think I can handle the “blur” at 15 meters as I only take 3 or 4 15 meters shot per year ^^
