Years ago when I was the digital media director for an ABC affiliate, one of the vice presidents asked me if I had ever left or read reviews on products I had seen online. Of course I was aware of such reviews, but at that time really hadn’t given them much consideration. There wasn’t a lot of online product commenting back Continue reading Bushnell Legend M-Series Binocular
Bushnell Outdoor Products recently introduced a new compact roof prism spotting scope in the Bushnell Tactical line that’s equally at home in the field–the Bushnell Elite Tactical 8-40x 60mm Lightweight Modular Spotting Scope (LMSS). Featuring ED Prime glass and fully multi-coated optics, the Elite Tactical 8-40x 60mm LMSS provides incredible image brightness and color resolution. Available standard or with the Horus Vision H32 reticle, an ideal reticle for identifying distances, the Elite Tactical LMSS is an extremely versatile optic. With a minimum magnification of eight power, an ideal setting when employed with night vision, and a maximum of 40 power, the Elite Tactical Spotting Scope is one of the most versatile premium spotting scopes on the market.
Constructed with a rugged, rubber-armored housing, the spotting scope is fully fog proof and meets IPX7 waterproof standards. Combine that with the permanent, water-repellant RainGuard HD lens coating, a patented Bushnell technology that causes moisture to bead up and scatter less light, and this optic is built to withstand the toughest tests from Mother Nature.
The spotting scope includes a detachable Picatinny rail, giving users the ability to quickly and easily mount the spotter to a firearm or tripod system. The Elite Tactical 8-40x 60mm LMSS is available for an estimated retail price of $1,699.99 or $2,199.99 with the Horus H32 reticle.
The new Scout DX 1000 ARC laser rangefinder from Bushnell offers hunters and shooters a host of features that will help them identify and range targets quickly. The Scout DX 1000 provides accurate distance readings from 5 to 1000 yards with +/- ½ yard accuracy.
Featuring the new E.S.P. processor from Bushnell, Scout DX 1000 provides faster and more precise distance readings than ever before, including 1/10th yard display precision within 125 yards. Featuring the patented Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology, the Scout DX 1000 instantly accounts for terrain angles to provide bow hunters with the “shoots like” distance and rifle hunters with holdover data in inches, centimeters, MOA or MILs. In addition, the rangefinder includes Variable Sight-In Distance (VSITM), providing shooters with holdover data based on a 100, 150, 200 or 300 yard zero.
With three modes of operation–Scan, BullsEye and Brush–the Scout DX 1000 is just as effective in the woods as it is on the open plains. And with a six power magnification optic, hunters and shooters will have no problem identifying and ranging targets at long ranges.
The rangefinder features a slim vertical design that’s protected with a rugged, waterproof housing. The Scout DX 1000 includes a neck strap and carrying case, and is available in both black and the new Realtree Xtra pattern for $299.99 and $319.99, respectively.
