Gear New Short to Mid-Range Riflescope From Bushnell Tactical Recoil Staff July 2, 2012 1 Comments, Join the Conversation Bushnell Tactical has released a new short to mid-range riflescope (SMRS), the tactical SMRS 1-6.5x 24mm scope and is available in four configurations with excellent clarity from close range to mid-range. The Bushnell Elite Tactical SMRS is available with two illuminated tactical reticles in both first and second focal plane. The new tactical SMRS scope combines close quarters precision with outstanding mid-range capability. With a true 1x magnification and the new BTR-1 and BTR-2 reticle options, this scope delivers instant target acquisition and calibrated ranging for longer shots. The scope features an illuminated reticle with 11 brightness settings for quick adjustments in any light condition. The BTR-1 reticle is an illuminated, ballistically calibrated reticle that is optimized for use with 5.56/.223 caliber rounds. This bullet drop compensating (BDC) reticle provides accurate ranging and aiming to 600 meters. The BTR-2 is an illuminated mil-hash reticle that allows for ranging, holdover and windage adjustments. Both the BTR-1 and BTR-2 illuminated reticles are available in first or second focal plane. Bushnell Elite Tactical series scopes are built to withstand the rigors of the field, whether in military and law enforcement situations, competitions or countless rounds at the range. With fully multi-coated optics and the new anti-reflective Ultra Wide Band (UWB) coating, the scope delivers light transmission across more of the visible light spectrum than before. This feature leads to enhanced clarity, exceptional brightness and true color from dawn to dusk. Built from high-quality forged aluminum alloy, the scope features a robust 30mm one-piece tube and Argon purging. Integrated to deliver long-lasting performance and reliability, Argon provides added resistance against corrosion, reduced chances of fogging and longer seal life. The scopes are 100 percent fog proof, shock proof and waterproof. Bushnell takes all-weather performance a step further with its patented RainGuard HD lens coating. The permanent, water-resistant finish gives shooters a clear view when weather conditions present a challenge. The Bushnell Elite Tactical SMRS 1-6.5x 24mm riflescope is available in first focal plane for an MSRP of $2,119.95 and second focal plane for $1,967.95.
