New From Bushnell: Lots Of Scopes

Bushnell’s new XRS (for ‘extreme range scope) 4.5-30×50 is the biggest scope I’ve ever seen bolted to a firearm. It rocks a 34mm main tube, a 50mm objective, locking tactical turrets, and enough magnification to see the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. And it lists for $2149, which isn’t that much when compared to the gi-normous Barrett .50s and Accuracy Int’l .338s it’s going to be mounted to. Anything smaller probably need not apply. 

At the other end of the price and size spectrum, Bushnell’s new AR 1-4×24 ‘Throw Down PCL’ scope includes a raft of competition-ready features.

Its illuminated .223 bullet-drop compensator reticle is in the first focal plane, and its folding throw lever pulls the magnification from 4x down to a true 1.0x and back in a heartbeat. All for an MSRP of $299.

Stay tuned for the inevitable test.
