Re: Is 20x enough scope for 500 yards?
20 power is lots, I have the same scope, really like the glass and turrets just not enough adjustment for me, I also have a 6500 elite and a nightforce. As far as steel goes it depends on caliber and speed and how the steel will be placed. If you let it hang so that it will move you can grt away with a lighter material. We have a peice of qt 100 at a 1000 yards that we shoot with .338 edge , .338 edge a.i. and .338 lapua , its is 1/2" thick hanging no problems 4 guys shooting it.
