If you’re looking for a riflescope for match shooting, hunting, or maybe a bit of both, then the Bushnell Match Pro 6-24×50 is definitely worth a look.
Ben Mcilwain from distributors Edgar Brothers fitted one to his rimfire rifle, and reckons it’s hard to beat for versatility and value for money.
“I absolutely love it,” he says. “It’s primarily aimed at the tactical market for competition style shooting, but I’ve also had it out hunting. It’s super clear.”
“My favourite feature is the tool-less turret adjustment,” he continues. “When you’re zeroing you just unscrew the cap, lift if off, replace it in the position you want, and screw the cap back on, job done!”
The scope has mil markings on the turrets, and a first focal plane reticle with mil markings. Then there’s a parallax adjustment ring that’s marked up to 500 yards, so you can read off the range if necessary.
The scope has the usual diopter adjustment at the back end, and the 50mm objective lens and 30mm tube give terrific light gathering power. Weight is just under 30 oz, not a super light scope but still fine for hunting as well as competition use.
“You can fit this to an air rifle, a rimfire or a centrefire, and for a crossover competition and hunting rifle it would be ideal,” says Ben. “I’ve had this on my rimfire for the last few months, but I’m planning to put one on my centrefire as well, I love it that much!”
“It’s affordable too, at under £800, and really punches above its weight.”
