Bushnell has introduced the Elite Long Range Hunting Scope (LRHS). This 3-12x 44mm configuration, the inaugural offering in the Elite Tactical Hunter product line, showcases the integration of technology and functionality from the acclaimed Bushnell Elite Tactical series in a scope designed specifically for the long range hunter.
The LRHS is the first hunting riflescope Bushnell has offered with a first focal plane reticle. The new G2H milliradian-based reticle is designed to give hunters the ability to range targets at any magnification setting. The G2H reticle has .5 mil hash marks with eight mils of holdover and six mils of windage data.
Constructed with a forged aluminum one-piece 30mm tube, the scope has an overall length of 13 inches and weighs 26 ounces. The LRHS features low profile, tactical-style turrets calibrated in .1 mil clicks with 10 mils of adjustment per revolution. Equipped with the RevLimiter™ zero stop mechanism, the elevation turret is designed to allow the hunter to “dial up” and then quickly return to the preset zero without the possibility of dialing past zero. In addition, the scope features a rubber-armored fast focus eyepiece and side parallax adjustment to retain a crisp, clear sight picture at any range.
Available in April 2014, the Elite LRHS 3-12x 44mm riflescope will be available for $1499.99.
