Thanks for the input.


As much as I post over the web I don't have a direct link, but I've deleted nothing, and it's out there somewhere. It might be in the Optics section of Sniper's Hide.

I think the Elite 4200 has better glass. Didn't compare to the 3200 but I would hope it (6500) is better than that!

The scope is a fine overall package, and the knobs are decent. It is what is is for the price point. a good, safe choice for the money.

Bushnell is not claiming 80 MOA of adjustment on the 4.5-30x50 model in question although they do make that claim for their 2.5-16x42 and 2.5-16x50 models.
