I talked to Bushnell Canada today about changing the reticle on my Elite 4200 8-32 to a mil-dot. No problem, $55.00 U.S. and should be done in a week. I also asked about this product:
http://www.bushnell.com/general/riflescopes_elite6500_65-4305md.cfm
which I think would make an excellent FT scope except for it only being able to focus down to 25 yards :cry: I asked the company rep if the objective could be factory altered to take the focus down to 10 yards and she said, "I don't think so."
I seem to remember reading somewhere about it not being such a big deal to adjust scopes to focus down to closer ranges? Also, I'm sure someone must make custom sidewheels for various scopes? Any thoughts or input is appreciated...

Brad Troyer reported on the delphi FT forum that he talked to the company rep that said they do not change the focus. The are however working to see if they can produce a production model that does focus to 10 yards. He also said that if they do create this close focus model, it will not be available until some time next year.
