2.5–15x50 $850 1st plane MOA reticle
In Bushnell’s new brand alignment, the Forge product line replaces the Elite at the top of the hierarchy, and this 30mm scope is a worthy successor to the lineage. The exposed locking turrets and zero-stop are first-rate, the glass is pretty good, and the configuration serves both hunters and preci- sion shooters. Testers liked the reach provided by the Forge’s 80 MOA of total internal adjustment, though we wished for better indexing to keep track of turret evolutions. The biggest demerit: The Deploy MOA reticle is busy and hard to see at magnifications under about 6X.
