scope choice

Hi, I will soon aquire a CZ452 Varmint and would like some advice and reccomendations regarding scopes...I have done quite a lot of homework and my intended use included a mix of targets at 50m and light (fox/rabbit) hunting. I have narrowed it down to a Bushnell 2-7x32 elite 3200 or leupold of similar size & power. Anyone have expierence with either of these or a reccomendation to look further?

it sounds like you know what you want. and its mostly about hunting prefrences. so youve got it licked.

Id recomend the leupold over the bushnell, only because I have no exsperince with the bushnell. the leupold would make a great scope. and the bushnell may also make great scope, just my prefrence goes to leupold.

good luck with your decision.

I bought the same rifle a couple months ago & mounted a Simmons 1022T on it. I think (for the money, about $120) it's a pretty good alternative; however if money's no object, go with Leupold.
In the power range you're talking about it would be a Leupold VX-II which I haven't had experience with. I've used the Vari-X II a lot and would highly recommend one over the 3200 mostly for the fantastic warranty service you'll have behind the scope. You'll have the same warranty with the VX-II and I imagine it's at least as good a scope as the older Vari-X model. Now if you were talking about a 4200 vs. a VX-II.......
Check and see if the 2-7Leupold is the rimfire version....I had one but traded it for a 3-9EFR but I just wanted the extra top end nothing wrong with the 2-7rimfire......if it is a standard 2-7 ,leupold will adjust the parallax for a fee to a closer distance.....good luck and good shooting!!
Don't overlook the Weaver 2-7 Rimfire

scope if you're looking for a non-AO scope.
