Overland Park, Kan – Bushnell, an industry leader in high performance sports optics for 65 years, 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 adjustment. In addition, the center of the reticle features a Vital Bracket that has a diameter of two Mils at any range, equivalent to 7.2” at 100 yards.
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.
The Elite LRHS is argon purged to provide 100 percent waterproof and fog proof performance, while the patented RainGuard? HD water-resistant coating provides a permanent exterior barrier against the elements. When moisture hits the RainGuard treated lenses it beads up and scatters less light, giving hunters a clear view in conditions that would render untreated optics unusable.
Every product in the Elite series is not only covered by the Bushnell limited lifetime warranty, the entire product line is also backed with the one-year, no-risk Bushnell Bulletproof Guarantee. The 100 percent money back guarantee is valid up until one year from the original date of purchase.
The Elite LRHS 3-12x 44mm riflescope is available for a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $1499.99. For more information about Bushnell and its complete line of sports optics, visit www.bushnell.com or call 1-800-423-3537.
