Bushnell Banner series scope quality?

Recommended Posts

Another scope I am not familiar with but have a line on what seems like a decent price for one.

Its a Bushnell Banner 6-24x40 with AO and target turrets adn Mil Dot reticle.

I am putting it on my Encore 17.5" 223 handgun for long range shooting hunting.

I am sure the recoil of this gun will not damage the scope but I dont want to sacrifice glass quality to save a bit of $$$ either.

However I am wanting to not spend an arm and a leg for a scope on this gun...

Anyone have or have used this scope or any Bushnell Banner series scopes?

Thanks,

Shawn

I started hearing several people talk about the quality (for the price) of these scopes so I bought a 3-9X50 for my Encore.

I now own 4 of them!!

For the money you absolutely cannot beat them.

The bushnell legend is a better scope, Has better clearity, more power, better over all quality. Just my .02 cents.

Its as I expected.

Have not had any experience with the banner scopes, but have a bushnell scope on my ml. For what I paid for the scope, i am pretty happy with it.

They don't have a lot of eye relief for handgun shooting. Granted the recoil is minimal but its not too comfortable parking your head a few inches behind the gun without resting it on something.

Yes this I am aware of. LOL

Although my rig will be fairly heavy when its done and that should help on the 223 recoil.

I still plan to back off a bit until I find the hold and grip I like and need for this sort of shooting.
