This is a hard one to vote on since I haven't yet seen or used a bushnell 6500. I'm in the market for a scope and the ones listed are on my short list. I'm going to wait to see a 6500 in person before I decide.

2.5x16x50MM is for sure going on my AR-15

That scope is "Bad to the Bone" But I think I'm going to save my cash for a long time for some nice euro optics on my heavy long range varmint rig. The NXS isd going for about $1,700 bucks. I'm hearing the Zeiss 6x24 Davarian ( However its spelled ) is same price and has better optics.Perhaps the best there is.

The zeiss glass "might" be a better grade, but the internal components don't hold a candle to the NXS. You will not get the adjustablility and reliability with the zeiss. Guaranteed !!

If you dial in your dope, you will learn that very fast !

Zeiss has good optics, but a very mediocre tracking mechanism.

You should add the IOR tacticals here. They're built like a tank, superb glass, and great turrets etc.
But for the money that 6500 looks pretty attracting. Just anxious to see how those pull up turrets are reliability wise.
