what to use to help with the glare on the scope lens
 
I bought myself a new .223 and used a older 40mm bushnell scope I had in the closet if the light hits it right it has one hell of a glare , Coyotes around here see that and run , UIs there anything I can use to help cut the glare ? I tried a small piece of panty hose pulled tight over the scope with a end cap on it but you really loose color and sight picture , to me it wont work well out to 200 yards as I had trouble seeing much past 50 yards with it on there , is there certain colors that work better than others ? I used a flesh tone , Is there a different material that works better
Thanks

those honeycomb ards work well as do longer but cheaper sunshades.

Ah- you have discovered the "Black Hole"- the feature most difficult for a sniper to conceal. The shades he showed you up there ^^^ can cut some of the glare. Sun at your back helps.

ive seen guys at the range duct taping cardboard tubes to the ends of the scope...

Anyone know what sunshade will fit a 40mm bushnell banner ?

Yep, I have one of these on my Nikon Coyote Special and it works great.

i would suggest giving bushnell a call. if your objective is threaded they should be able to help you find a shade for it.

Jon ,
due to the high volume of calls I have been on hold for 30 minutes :( .
Anyone know if the elite sunshade will fit the Banner 6-24X40mm ? if so I will just order one .
Thanks

I had the same problem with Leupold yesterday and finally gave up. 'tis the season, but I'll sure look at Leupold differently from now on.

If I were you, I would just gut out the thirty minutes and not take the chance of ordering something that doesn't fit. I really doubt that anyone here can tell you unequivocally that the Elite sunshade will fit.
