My understanding is that BP and shotgun scopes were set up a bit differently so that they could take the larger jolts from their firing andnot changing claibration.

Is this not true at all?

I don't know that much about scopes but that is what twopeople at Bass Pro told me three weeks ago.

Pesronally I think they are a real good mid-range scope... Does it have the ballistic reticle?

Here is a comparison for you..

Althought I think you can buy them direct off E-Bay right now for $160 buy it now...

I have 13 scopes, I have had many others, mainly they are all of the brands mentioned + Nikon,Swift and Tasco.
On some of them you pay a lot for the name, I think the most commen mistake is too much power and the parallex set to close. As far as brands go they all seem to be getting closer and closer the Swift and the Bushnell are the best dollar for value. While there are some better the differance in price is much bigger than the differance in value. I find a 1,75 X 4 Bushnell fills my needs quite well for my Omega although if I was to go shopping for that gun again I would look at some Swift models I am very impressed with my new Swift.
With the capability of going down to 2 or less power and having a large front optic you have good twilight capabilities and with 4 power you can shoot 1 hole groups @ 100yds on the range what else do you need. Lee

After looking at the ballistics rectical, I am not sure if I need it. I am here in Indiana and can't invision taking a shot much over 100 yards. I had decided on a bushnell banner until I found out I can buy the same scope for same money.
