Bushnell Elite 6500 optics for XP100?
I am nearing completion of my 6.5wsm XP-100. I have been doing some research on some scopes and am thinking of trying a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x42.
Here are the questions I have...
Is the mill dot reticle to heavy? I tried to get dimensions from Bushnell tech and he didn't even know what MOA was. He could understand clicks....sorta.
What is the eye relief compared to a mark IV 6.5-20 in real life?With my MK4 I can pull my eye back 5-6 inches and still have a full field of view. their web site says it's about 4" as opposed to Leupold's 3.6. Just wondering how quick it blacks out as you pull your eye back.
What are the turrets like?
Is there 15 minutes per revolution?
Do you rotate elevation counter clockwise for up?
and windage counter clockwise for right?
Do they have revolution marks to count which revolution you are on?
Would love to hear from anyone using one of these scopes.
I am also interested in their new DOA 600 reticle, but would like to know line thickness as well. The rep said something about 1/4" MOA, but he didn't seem to necessarily know what he was talking about.....I asked for reticle diagrams and he didn't know that they had them.....
without God their is no hope for this country
