Bushnell Fusion 1600 ARC

Bushnell Fusion 1600 ARC

This Bino Does It All (Except Squeeze The Trigger)

Little by little, the glass makers of the world feed us small bits of fruit. “This is great, but if I just had…” A sentiment that keeps us buying the next generation of technobabble shooting gear. I keep waiting for that last innovation that fills my needs. Is the Bushnell Fusion 1600 ARC it?

Nobody wants to carry several pieces of gear to solve a problem. For example, a binocular to see it, a rangefinder to know how far it is, and finally a chart or iPhone App of some sort to know how high above the target to aim. Alternatively, we might want to know the MOA or mil come-ups, to turn on the elevation turret or which bar to use. Would it not be significantly better to have it all in one package? Now you know my excitement: Bushnell has it all in one binocular; and they brought it out in the most popular power and objective lens size to boot: 10x42mm.

The Bushnell Fusion 1600 ARC has two red buttons on top of the chassis. The one on the left (as you look through the binocular) is used to program the computer chip to your needs. For example: Yards or meters, the ballistic flight of your bullet, which gives inches required above the target to make a hit, or the MOA come-ups on the turret. So, you look through the bino to see what it is, push the button on the right to find out how far away it is, and then, looking in the lower, left-hand corner, note the MOA come-ups you need on the scope to make the hit. This still leaves two problems: You have to lower the bino to bring the rifle up and either aim high, or put the necessary come-ups on the turret and aim dead center. Still, it offers a significant advantage over previous years and different ways to solve the same problem.
