The farthest I have "ran" it out to has been 650yds but it is dead on at that range.
Since I bought mine, Midway has had the Mil-Dot version on sale a couple of times for $299.99. It's not a Leupold or NightForce but it'll more than likely get you what you're searching for. Good luck. JohnnyK.
+1...my cousin has a 6-18x40 Buckmaster and it works great for him. He has the BDC reticle and personally I think the cross hairs are a bit heavy. The mil-dot and target dot reticles are more fine.

If you can find a load that will shoot in your 243, you can shoot at varmints much farther than 500 yards.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!

this is what i have a optima elite in 243 24" barrel 1-10' twist with a 2x7 scope, or i thought about buying a bolt action or will a lever action work
Rifles are remarkably narrow and specific in their application. That's why we need so many of them! Of course you need another rifle. We won't get out of this recession if we don't spend! Be a patriot; BUY, BUY, BUY!
