Bushnell Tactical | SHOT 2017

    At the 2017 SHOT Show, Bushnell premiered their new DMR II and DMR II-i rifle scopes. These riflescopes feature a 34mm tube and come in both illuminated and non-illuminated options. These scopes have 10 mils of adjustment per revolution and have Bushnell’s new ThrowHammer Lever, that makes dialing magnification easier. These scopes have zero stop functionality and are available with a G3, G3-i illuminated reticle or a Horus H59 reticle.

    I am a big fan of the Bushnell XRS/DMR/HDMR series of rifle scopes. I purchased a Bushnell HDMR with a Horus H59 reticle several years ago and it serves as my primary long range rifle scope. I am glad that Bushnell is continuing to develop this product line.

    Last year at SHOT, Bushnell released the T-Series 15-45, 60mm spotting scope. It has a mil hash reticle. I have seen these scopes on the internet for around $500. Incredible value.
