    I have just put a Bushnell 3200 7-21 Elite on my 22-250 and took it to the range. From 7-14 power seems to be very clear but turn it up to 15-21 power seems to really lose clarity, has anyone else had this problem. I have two 4-12 Elites and love them but am going to send this one back and either ask to swap scopes or go to a better scope. I would really like some input on this. Thanks

    Is this an AO scope? All my 3200s have been very clear at all powers.

    Yes, and that is why I think it is messed up. I was really surprised at it because my 4-12's are great.

    thub, I have a 4x12 3200 on a 7mag that is one the best scopes I have ever had. Better that my older Leupold VariX3 which is second best. But I purchased a new 3200 3x9 last summer and its no where near the optic quality the older bushy was. I think thier QC is not what it once was.

    I agree :(

    Although I have older Bushnells and they are very good, I switched up to Nikon for moderate priced scopes because I observed the same thing, just less pronounced, when trying some out across the parking lot at Cabelas, Reno :(

    Bushnell Elites have the best warranty going, you can get all your money back in the first year, for any reason + lifetime after the 1st year.
