Bushnell has just announced the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 rifle scope, designed to provide excellent long-range performance for competitors and advanced shooters.
Bushnell saw a good deal of success with the 6-24×50 Match Pro rifle scope, but many shooters wanted something more powerful. Now featuring a higher magnification level, a larger objective lens and several other improvements, the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 is finally available.
With its 34mm maintube, magnification on the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 now goes all the way up to 30x and the objective lens is now 56mm in diameter. The ED in the name stands for Extra-Low Dispersion Prime glass, and this high-grade glass has also been coated with an EXO Barrier to protect it against the elements. Other features also include a new easier-to-use zero stop, an integrated throw lever that can be used by left- or right-handed shooters (or removed entirely) and a 15-yard minimum parallax for extremely close engagements. Built tough as well, the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 has a very high recoil rating and is IPX7 waterproof and fog proof.
The Deploy MIL 2 etched glass FFP reticle (DM2) is also new. It’s an illuminated 2/10 MRAD tree reticle with 11 brightness settings and an auto-shut-off feature to save battery. It’s based on Bushnell’s popular Deploy MIL reticle but now features a finer 2/10 MRAD grid for easier use at greater magnification levels.
I actually had the chance to put a Match Pro ED 5-30×56 to the test this July at a Bushnell/RCBS event in Wyoming, and I walked away very impressed. Whether it was on the range ringing steel at ridiculous distances or picking off prairie dogs from a truck, the scope performed marvelously. At long-range, adjustments were easy to make and the reticle was intuitive to use. At shorter ranges, the super clear glass made bagging prairie dogs a breeze.
While its performance may suggest a higher price point, the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 has an MSRP of only $699. It’s available now and appears to be an excellent value scope for competitors and long-range shooters alike.
