bushnell legend ultra hd

Post by gabriel1 » 30 Apr 2015, 14:21

Hi, guys.
I just sold my sidewinder tactical 6,5-20x40 and I want to buy a new scope for an add-on.
what do you think about Bushnell Legend HD line.
I am interested about 3-9x40 ,3-9x50 or 4,5-14x44.
I am more attracted about 4,5-14x44 but if it is not proper for an add-on I can switch to 3-9x..
Can somebody tell me if optically is on par with sidewinder tactical line? I don't have money for Bushnell Elite line so please don't tempt me.

I have the 4.5-14x44.
The rain guard coating works. in a comparison shoot during cold drizzle my cheap Tasco became too fogged to use within minutes. The legend was good all night.
The parallax adjustment is needed, set to 20 meters you can see to 200 with an E700 & T20.
The longest recorded kill with NV on this forum was using a Legend with a T66 torch and digital add on, 294 meters.
For daytime use I would call it adequate.

The Legend line are absolutely superb and work really well with NV. Optically, there is little to choose between them and the Elite Bushnell range and I own both scopes so have first-hand experience. The 14x would be my choice with the Mil-dot reticle for sizing rabbits at night, full grown rabbit in an eating position is 12" or 300mm. If it covers 3mrad it is 100m away if it covers 6mrad it 50m away. A really simple tool.

Good luck with whatever you buy.

Just to add, I bought two more 4.5-14x44 mildot Legend HDs so all my rimfires have matching glass. They may not be Kahles, but they are perfectly adequate for night shooting.
Unlike the Tasco, they hold zero after banging around over 20 kilometers of dirt road. Important in the OZ bush.

Thank you guys.
I think I will buy a 4,5-14x44.
Maybe will be better than Hawke sport hd 3-9x50 on daylight.

They are a serious improvement over Hawke sport HD IMHO.

You was right guys.
Thank you very much for advices.
Today I was received my 4,5-14x44 Legend scope and I am very happy with it after first impression in daylight.
Unfortunately only choice for reticle was duplex reticle.
Hope to have same positive impression after night test.
