Elite Tactical XRS3 Riflescope Wins
On Target Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award

Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, is pleased to announce that its Elite Tactical XRS3 riflescope has been awarded an Editors’ Choice Award by On Target Magazine. The staff at On Target  praised the XRS3 for its highly effective G4P reticle, uncompromising optical quality and precise adjustments.

“Every year, we try to pick out the best of the best new products for On Target’s Editors’ Choice Awards, ones that demonstrate incredible technical achievement or value for the money,” said Ben Battles, editor of On Target. “The Elite Tactical XRS3 hits both of those criteria. This scope was designed for extreme long-range shooters with its outstanding optical quality and attention to detail inside and out, but the XRS3 also gives shooters some of the best value possible for this class of optic.”

The XRS3 6-36×56 FFP scope features the most advanced Elite Tactical optical system ever. The XRS3 comes with a high magnification ED Prime objective, as well as fully multi-coated elements, EXO Barrier protection and a proprietary G4P reticle with new reticle element coating. The new coating pushes the limits of the ultrawideband coating system by increasing light transmission by nearly 2% over previous designs.

This year, Elite Tactical is releasing an additional reticle, the EQL, for the XRS3. The new EQL is a 0.2 MIL grid developed to be fast and precise no matter the required hold or read. The wave-based hash system with intermediate floating and overlap dots is thinned and “opened up” where possible to reduce perceived complexity and target obstruction. Other features include main stadia integer floating dots, half value overlap dots and integral milling bar sections.
