    Jut received mine from SWFA, swapped out the non-Mildot model. Excellent!
    One question, the owners manual is pretty weak. Anything special to know about features and operation of it?

    Did you get the case and tripod and all? The don't display those items on their website... I'm kinda surprised they're able to sell them this cheaply.

    I got mine yesterday. It is the complete package - cover, tripod,case,carry strap. Looks good. Only problem is eye relief is a little short. I have to take my glasses off to get full field of view. I'm going long range tomorrow and we'll see how she does.

    I went 1000 yd and the spotter did well. I could make out the 3/4" target dots at 1000 yds. Couldn't see the bullet holes- naturally . I am really impressed with this spotter for the money . Only negative was short eye relief, past about 15x had to remove glasses to get full field of view.

    PM I sent Mr Mildots

    Quote:
    Yea it was recently raised. There was/is an availability problem and still an on going quality control problem, so we raised the price to reduce the number of backorders until I get an answer back from our account rep as to when they will solve these issues. We've ordered around 30 from Bushnell and have had to send over half of them back due to being defective.
    I can still sell you one at 319.95 but we are currently on backorder.

    Going out tomorrow. Zero at 100. Load evaluation at 600. Will let you know how it does. (Christmas tree lights under the eve of some condos at 400 look pretty crisp.)

    I can see 308 holes at 200yds, and 223's at 100.

    Haven't tried to see either at 300 yet. Overall it's a very capable spotter.

    30 cal holes are easily seen past 400 yards with a 22x rifle scope in low mirage.

    Anybody have any experience with this spotting scope at 300 yards? Can you see .30 cal holes?

    Riflescope. Should be able to with the Bushnell spotter also, though my limited use with it was mostly @ max power, so I can't say for sure.

    Re: Bushnell 15-45x60 Excursion w/ Mil Dot $319.95

    As promised:



    7mm holes at 400 yards @ 45x. From my friends 7STW. My ammo boxes were left very safe at home on my reloading bench. [img]<>/frown.gif[/img] No shooting for me today. Just as well, by 9:30am the wind was gusting 15-20 mph from 10 o'clock.

    You could actually see the holes much more clearly with the eye. I clearly have take the "How to Shoot Awesome Pictures Through a High Powered Optic With a POS Point-n-Shoot Digital" class.

    This scope has little black speck disease also.

    Short answer, No. Bushnell CS is still giving the run around. See the Bushnell defective spotter thread.

    Re: Bushnell 15-45x60 Excursion w/ Mil Dot $319.95

    my spotter has been at Bushnell for replacement for the "black specs" since Aug. 27th. Another hide member just got his replacement from Bushnell after a long wait and the replacement had "black specs" This has me worried about my replacement. It seems as if they have not corrected the problem and again, their C.S. is less then helpful. I have had a specific rep that said that he would help to fast track things. After a month and still waiting, I would hate to see what happens if you did not have a rep that said "he would help and personally get things moving" My suggestion is only buy a spotter if it has been personally inspected by the seller. I think Huntler has/had a couple in the for sale section that he inspected that should be GTG. If they do not have the "specs" they are great spotters for the money.
