I love the Elite line of Bushnells. The HDMR is also a great piece of glass. I had a NightForce on my 50, but swapped it out for a Bushnell Tactical Elite. I put the NF on a .338LM. I am much happier with the Bushnell on the 50, and NF on the 338. I compare my Bushnell with my Leupold Mk4. There are better scopes IMO, but they cost quite a bit more. I would not be afraid of yours, just because of warranty work. My Leupold had to go back for a parallax problem. After the repair it has never given an issue.
