I am looking at the Busnell Elite series of scopes in either a:
4200 Elite 2.5x10x50 w. 3.3" eye relief
4200 Elite 1.5x6x36 w. 3.3" eye relief
3200 Elite 1.5x4.5x32 w. 3.6" eye relief
This scope will be mounted on a 8mm rem mag so eye relief may be an issue. This rifle will only be used for black bear and moose possibly Grizz if I stumble upon one. My questions are:
1) Will 3.3 or 3.6 inches of eye relief be a problem for me. I am not to worried about shooting it off of a rest but more about practicing from field positions.
2) What is the skinny' on these scopes? They look very bright to me. What would you guys compare them to?
3) What is the max distance you would take a shot at on a large game animal such as a moose under reasonable field conditions? With say 4.5 or 6 power max? I know, I know practice, and it will always depend.... but just curious about your views. I don't plan on ever shooting at anything over 300 yds away anway, thats pretty much my self imposed limit.
