I'm replacing the scope on my .338 Mag. getting ready for a brown bear hunt in May. I had a Bushnell Elite 3200 for the last two years, but it it wouldn't hold a zero and the 1/4 moa adjustments were inaccurate and inconsistent. Sometimes 8 clicks would move it half an inch and other times it would move it nearly half a foot, and the scope was securely mounted and I was very stable (does anyone else seem to have problems with scopes that are suppose to be 1/4 moa not moving a 1/4" at 100 yards? I have tried both Bushnell Elite 3200's and Leupold VX-II's and both have failed in this regard).
Anyways, I ordered a Cabela's Alaska Guide Premuim scope but it on backorder for now. I was wondering if I should instead try a Bushnell Elite 4200 model. I like the design and layout of the Bushnell Elites better than the Leupolds, but was wondering how much better the 3-9X40 Elite 4200 model would be compared with the same in a 3200 model (which I've already tried). I don't know anyone who uses a Elite 4200, and it looks real similar to the 3200 models but costs $100 more, so it must be built better. Does anyone know the specifics? Any help in this scope decision would be appreciated. Thanks
