Bushnell has introduced the inaugural offering in its Elite Tactical Hunter product line-the Elite Long Range Hunting Scope.

This 3-12x44 mm configuration showcases the technology and functionality of the Bushnell Elite Tactical series in a scope designed specifically for the long-range hunter.

The LRHS is the first hunting riflescope Bushnell has offered with a first focal-plane reticle. The G2H milliradian-based reticle is designed to give hunters the ability to range targets at any magnification setting. The G2H reticle has .5 mil hash marks with eight mils of holdover and six mils of windage adjustment. In addition, the center of the reticle features a Vital Bracket that has a diameter of two Mils at any range, equivalent to 7.2 inches at 100 yards.

Constructed of a forged aluminum one-piece 30 mm tube, the scope has an overall length of 13 inches and weighs 26 ounces. The LRHS features low-profile, tactical-style turrets calibrated in .1 mil clicks with 10 mils of adjustment per revolution. Equipped with the RevLimiter zero stop mechanism, the elevation turret is designed to allow the hunter to “dial up” and then quickly return to the preset zero without the possibility of dialing past zero. In addition, the scope features a rubber-armored, fast-focus eyepiece and side parallax adjustment to retain a crisp, clear sight picture at any range.

The Elite LRHS is argon purged to provide 100 percent waterproof and fog proof performance, while the patented RainGuard HD water-resistant coating provides a permanent exterior barrier against the elements.

Every product in the Elite series is not only covered by the Bushnell limited lifetime warranty, the entire product line is also backed with the one-year, no-risk Bushnell Bulletproof Guarantee. The 100-percent money back guarantee is valid up until one year from the original date of purchase.

The Elite LRHS 3-12x 44mm riflescope is available for a minimum advertised price of $1,499.99.
