So, is the 5" the eye relief for the highest power?
What power?

I think they should start using world class optics and internals--no reason they can't.... USO does it with every scope they make--if they made a line like that then I would buy more of them...

Here is what I have found:
I am assuming the eye relief listed is for the lowest magnification.

Specifications of Bushnell Elite 6500 Rifle-Scopes:
The 4.5-30x scope has 4 inches of eye relief, while the 2.5-16x has 3.9 inches of eye relief.

Is this the scope(s) we are talking about?

I couldn't stand it and called Bushnell.
The eye relief is 4 inches constantly through all magnification changes.

Sorry Earnie,

I have been busy with the shop and it looks like the baby is going to show up any time now. Thats good to know that someone has actually talked to bushnell. I read one ad and it says the 3.9 another says 5. I had just figured it was high to low magnification. Now if that four is ACTUALLY four. Well then thats better than most everything. I measured my nightforce with the help of the brother in law. It is actually just over three. An extra inch is an extra inch! Oh yeah 4.5-30 WOW! I have owned a few bushnell 4200 and they are brighter than nightforce,leupold,USO. I think the only scope rated higher for light transmision on the whole is Zeis? If the turrets are USEABLE than its sold.

Jason
