Bushnell_LRHSiLG-2Bushnell has always been a big name in the hunting scene, and in the past few years, the company has really dedicated itself to offering more in the way of quality, long-range optics for hunters and shooters. One of the American manufacturer’s biggest releases in recent years was its Elite Long Range Hunting Scope (LRHS), a purpose-built riflescope with features designed to aid the long-range hunter.

Bushnell-E45184HI_45-18x44mm_Standard2Now, Bushnell is expanding its long-range offerings by adding another long-range riflescope with an illuminated reticle to help hunters more quickly place their aiming point on target in any light condition. Like the previous LRHS, the new Bushnell LRHSi 4.5-18x44mm riflescope provides excellent accuracy, especially as distances stretch, making it a powerful tool for long-range shooters and hunters.

The new LRHSi riflescope features a first focal plane G2H-i mil-based reticle with .1 mil clicks. This allows shooters to range targets at any magnification and make quick, easy and precise holdover adjustments in the field. The scope also incorporates a low-profile, target-style elevation turret equipped with a RevLimiter zero stop function that allows shooters to quickly return to zero without dialing past the zero.

Like many of Bushnell’s riflescopes, the new LRHSi 4.5-18x44mm comes equipped with Bushnell’s Rainguard HD that creates a permanent barrier that beads water to maintain a clear view regardless of the conditions, an excellent benefit to serious hunters who might not always experience ideal shooting conditions. Along these same lines, the LRHSi is Argon-purged for waterproofing.

This new long-range scope utilizes a fast-focus eyepiece and side-parallax adjustment to ensure a clear sight picture regardless of range, and it features fully multi-coated optics with Ultra Wide Band anti-reflection lens treatments.

The LRHSi has a durable 30mm tube construction, yet weighs in at just 26.5 ounces, providing a lightweight option perfect for the field. Overall length is 14.2 inches, and eye relief on the new optic is 3.94 inches.

The new Bushnell LRHSi 4.5-18×44 currently carries a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $2,039.95. For more information on the new LRHSi, visit Bushnell’s website.
