Re: New Bushnell 6500

Thanks Eaglet. I had read whats been posted so far but unable to find any info from someone actually using one and how they are holding up to heavy recoil and such. I agree that they should be better than the 32 and 4200 but .

Re: New Bushnell 6500

Are the reticles the same as on the 3200's?

Looking toward the Sun at dawn and dusk the 3200 reticle "flares" a bronze color and obstructs the view badly, IMO.

I want the 4.5-30x 6500, but the reticle has me up in the air. For $667. it is very tempting

edge.

Re: New Bushnell 6500

I like my 4.5-30 MD. I've shot it on all my rifles from 220 Swift to my 338 RUM. Crisp repeatable clicks. Good scope for the money.

Re: New Bushnell 6500

Round numbers:

200 with the Swift

120 with the 300 win

80 with the 338 RUM

It will also get some time over a 7mmRUM as soon as my reamer and dies show up.
