    Bushnell AR 3x12 - 40mm

    Looking for an AR scope in the $300 range these seem a very good price under $300, anything else worth considering? I'd like target turrets if I can.

    After only a day of use I can't do a really in depth review.. But, I was impressed with the clarity (its better than my mates Redfield 3-9x40 in terms of resolution and colour rendition). Parallax adjustment works as it should. Clicks aren't real clicky, but do the job.
    Has really good eye relief - if mounting on an AR you will definitely need a cantilever mount.
    Only downside I can see so far is the un covered turrets could get moved away from zero easily if dragged through bush or something.
    Would recommend this scope if you don't pay too much for it - I saw a "brand new condition" one go for $200 on Trademe last week.
    Cheers

    Did you just set and forget...or did you try dialing it out to various ranges to test its long range capabilities?

    Just curious, as it seams good value for money, but I've never known anyone who actually owns one.

    Hi there I have a Ar223 3-12 scope. goes alright so far, has bdc reticle for 223, although its on my 308 at the moment. haven't dialed it at range yet but by all accounts when zeroing it has tracked fine. its quite heavy for what it is so I suspect its probably quite tough the only thing its missing is rainguard on the lens.
