    Hoping for an optically astute person to clarify any possible issues. Juggling scopes between rifles, as it turns out literally as I've dropped a scope an it's a goner. Down a flight of concrete stairs goner. I've got a Bushnell DOA 250 muzzleloader 3-9 I was given awhile ago an never used. Clarity an quality certainly seem acceptable. It'll be going on a very lightweight walkabout 22-250. recoil? parrallax(big word i throw out but could'nt explain)? Thoughts? I see a weaver illuminated reticle 2.5-10 in the future, but whether thats 6 or 12 months down the road who knows. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Eye relief might be long, so you might have to mount it as far forward as you can.

    If parallax is going to be a problem, it will be at longer ranges and at 9X. You might not notice a problem even then. Bushnell must think it will be usable out to at least 250 yards.

    Just mounted, eye relief generous to say the least.
