The new Bushnell Match Pro ED 15×56 binoculars is a big deal, but maybe just to a niche crowd.

For a long time, spotting scopes have often come with a MIL or MOA reticle in the eyepiece so one could spot shots at long range and call corrections or for use in ranging a target if a laser rangefinder wasn’t available. 

And for a long time, the Bushnell Forge 15×56 binoculars were a great piece of equipment for a fair price, $700 MSRP.

Finally, the power of these two options is combined in the Bushnell Match Pro ED 15×56.

With a reticle in the right barrel, you get a MIL grid for ranging and shot correction like a spotting scope but the field of view and outstanding glass of the binoculars.

The class and basic binoculars are exactly that of the Forge model before it since, in that respect, it’s the same product. The big addition is the reticle, duel eye focus adjustment, and a new trick – a binocular bridge fork that stabilizes the binoculars and prevents them from adjusting when you don’t want them to.

Being 15x and having these out-of-the-box features, this might not be the set of binos you want for your average whitetail hunt. But for PRS, NRL22, NRL: Hunter, and other long range competitions – these are pretty awesome.

They won’t be available for another couple of months, but we’re excited to see them when they are.

MSRP is $700
