Re: New Glass for my STW

I have a bushnell elite 6500 4.5 x30 mil dot on my 300 rum I'm happy with it. one of my 7mm stw wears a vortex 4x16 lr bdc and my custom one im getting built is getting a vortex pst 6x24 sfp. I was real nervous about getting the bushnell its definitly not a walmart bushnell, I ordered a kenton turrett for it last year and its spot on. Dan

March 3-24 x 42 FFP. I have used this scope for a bit over a year now. It is excellent (but pricey). Very lightweight, turrets are first rate; glass crystal clear.

I tried everything I could to find a fault with it and after 150 rds down range I just couldn't. Not saying rush out and buy one tomorrow but depending on your budget is this may work for you.
I have one of these scopes, too. And I have to agree with your assessment. For the money it's hard to beat them. I've had mine for 1.5 years now, and it's still going strong. I keep it mounted to my 700 5R .308.

Look to european scopes: zeiss, swarovski, kahles, ior valdada or meopta. Very good scopes all of them.
