Thought I would pass this along for anyone in need of a light weight hunting / tactical scope. GA is running a special buy for the Bushnell LRHSI 3.5-18 x44 for 750 plus shipping. They also have an option to add a multi tool for 50$ more. Only catch is it wonít ship until July but you are saving around 4-500$

I have no association with GA just wanted to pass on a hell of a deal.

Never looked head to head but the lrhs is a Japanese made scope is consistent across the boards as a good to very good hunting scope. That donut reticle is very popular

Only thing questionable at times is the warranty since I believe that line is going away

Let us know if you find out

Both have zero stop and illumination, the PST2 has a better reticle and I would assume better glass (though I have not looked through the LRHSI, but I have looked through slightly more expensive Bushnell ET models and not been impressed for the price while the PST2 had very good glass for the $). The Bushnell likely has better build quality. The PST2 is a 5x scope while the LRHSI is a 4x, but that's not a huge deal because 4.5-18 is a very useful range.

You can get discounted PST2 scopes in the $800-$900 range depending on whether you're looking at the 3-15 or 5-25. The Bushnell is at $750. I'd get the PST2, but that's me. Honestly, in that price range, your best bet IMHO is a used SWFA 5-20 HD. But neither this Bushnell or the PST2 are bad options.

If this has the same Japanese glass as the Elite Tactical (and I'm pretty sure it does), it's better than the Gen 2 PST. I have both.

I wish I could remember which Bushnell I looked through. I looked through the ERS and one of their lower end models at SWFA about 7-8 months ago. ERS was good. The lower end one was pretty lackluster and it was around $1000-$1200 list price IIRC. I was less than impressed, and it was Japanese glass.

One other suggestion in this price range is a Burris XTR II 4-20. Non-illuminated puts you right in this price range and that scope is very well-regarded, and it beats the Bushnell reticle with no build quality or optical concerns.

I had one of the original lrhs 18 power and the glass was compairable with my NXS and PSTii. Turrets were tactile and tracked perfectly and I fell in love with the reticle after a few trips to the range. I canít speak to the warranty as I never had any issues with the scope. The lrhsi Bushnell is releasing in July is supposed to have upgraded glass. We will see.

Here's a sample of one Bushnell CS stories

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthread...-service#UNREAD

According to Formid ( a DOD guy who tests rifles, scopes, bullets for the us Govt) over on 24HCF The Bushy LRHS is one of only a small handful of scopes that can stand up to tortuous tracking, repeatability, and longevity testing. He puts in the league with NF. He wouldn't trust a Vortex anything with a ten foot pole. I can attest to the glass being top notch, at least as good as the VX6HD, better than SWFA 3-9 HD.

From my understanding, the LRHS is being replaced with the LRTS, which is the same scope with a different reticle(minus the "doughnut of death")
