OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – April 2020 –
Bushnell, an industry leader in performance optics, is excited to announce that it will offer a new version of its competition-based riflescope, the Match Pro, sold exclusively through Bushnell.com. Designed to offer an affordable solution for those seeking a precision-made riflescope for rimfire or PRS-style competitions, the Match Pro delivers high end features at an entry level price.
At the core of the Bushnell Match Pro is a list of high-end features that would normally be reserved for a riflescope costing considerably more than $499.99.
Among these standard features include; a first focal plane optical system, parallax down to 10 yards, locking turrets, tool-less zero reset, an etched glass MIL reticle, and fully multi-coated lenses. Add to it Bushnell’s patented EXO Barrier™ technology that repels unwanted moisture, fog and debris, all while providing protection against scratches, and you have a durable, purpose-built optic ready to take on any course of fire.
“As more and more people enter into the world of long-range precision matches, be it through the NRL22 or PRS, the need for a budget minded scope that doesn’t fall flat on capabilities has never been greater,” said Greg Palkowitsh, riflescope product manager. “The Match Pro riflescope offers the perfect blend of performance and cost, giving shooters all of the features they need while still qualifying for base class and open class competition.”
Standard features on the new Bushnell Match Pro include:
• 6-24×50 Configuration
