Bushnell 6500?

Has anybody used either one of the Bushnell 6500 s for LR work?I am mostly wondering about using the push/pull turrets for this type of shooting?

    I've got the 4.5-30x50. It works just fine. The turrets work very well. I've had no problem spinning them to get beyond 1k.

    I wish I would have waited for the tactical turrets that are coming out, but it works good.

    I was at Benchmark barrels today checking up on a build I have in work and Ron (owner) let me take a peek thru his 4.5-30x50 scope. Stepped outside with his 375-Cheytec monster rifle and I was pretty impressed with the optics. Looked out acrossed the farming fields 1500 yds or so into the trees and brush at 30x. The optics seemed pretty clean considering that I just panned from 4.5x up to 30x - amazing in fact.

    I am curious Geargrinder, what do you have your scope mounted on?

    I am having a 300 RUM built and concerned about how well it will hold up.

    Thanks!

    It's spent most of it's time on my 300win, but I've also had it on my 338RUM, 300wsm, 7mmwsm, and spent some target time on my 22-250AI.

    Still very happy with it.

    I thought about selling it, but I think I'll just buy another with the target turrets.

    One last question, does your 300 Win have a muzzle break or not? Just wondering how much recoil the 6500 is holding up to.

    Thanks for your response.

    No, only the 300wsm has a brake.
