OVERLAND PARK, KS – Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, announces the introduction of the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 FFP riflescope. Building off the success of the original Match Pro, the new, enhanced version offers developing and experienced long-range shooters premium optical performance and features.
From hardcore rimfire shooters to precision long range, the Bushnell Match Pro ED offers best-in-class optical performance built around an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Prime 56mm objective with EXO Barrier coating for protection against the elements. This glass wrings out every bit of sharpness and contrast without target blurring or color fringing.
The Match Pro ED elevates the legacy of the original Match Pro by surpassing the wish list of standard features received from its ardent fan base. The magnification ratio was increased to provide a more versatile range of 5x to 30x while the main tube diameter bumped up to 34mm diameter to realize a 30 MIL (103 MOA) elevation range. Both turrets now lock while the elevation turret has an integral Easy Set zero stop and 2-stage pop-up rev-indicator. The fully featured elevation turret ensures the shooter knows what revolution they’re on and instills repeatable confidence back to zero.
“The new Match Pro ED has taken all of the feedback we received from consumers whether discussing online or at various events and transformed them into a one-of-a-kind riflescope,” said Jim Bruno, President of Vista Outdoor Hunting and Shooting Accessories. “We did everything we could to exceed consumer expectations while developing a versatile, long-range optic that is truly in a class of its own.”
The Match Pro ED also improves on the original Match Pro with an updated illumination package, including 11 brightness settings with alternating off intervals and a 6-hour auto-off timer to increase battery life. The new DM2 reticle, based on the highly popular Deploy MIL, is updated to a .2 MIL-GRID style reticle and is crisp and detailed against a variety of backdrops. Although it’s rated for centerfire, the scope’s adjustable close-range, 15-yard parallax side-focus also makes it ideal for rimfire plinking as well as NRL22 and PRS Rimfire competition.
With a removable, 3-position power change lever that can be configured for left- or right-handed shooters, the Match Pro ED can be tailored to fit anyone. The scope also includes a removable sunshade and forward internal threads for mounting third-party accessories.
Shooters who choose the Match Pro ED get class-leading optical quality at an MSRP of only $699.99. To learn more about the Match Pro ED 5-30×56 FFP riflescope or to see Bushnell’s full lineup of optics, check out Bushnell.com.
