I've owned Weaver, Baush & Lomb, Simmons (Atec), Leupold, and Bushnell.
On my centerfires I have been changing over-slowly- to Bushnell 3200s.
On an elk hunt I found myself in a blizzard for 2 days on a 5 day hunt and when I crawled into a herd of elk the snow was blocking the scope as quick as I could wipe it off. I appreciate Bushnell's "rain guard".
Why the 3200 and not the 4200 series? Because head to head or side by side, the 3200 3X9 40mm appeared much brighter. I compared the two at both Cabelas and Gander Mountain.
The 40 mm allows the use of medium height mounts so I get good "cheek weld".
Going to Natchez or Optics Planet I've been paying very close to $200. ( I couldn't believe what a friend paid for his Swar-something.) If the bottom line is what the groups look like- there is no difference between the two scopes. Yes, his is sharper but---. My .300 Win, .270, and Ranch Rifle have gone to Bushnell.
