    Hi All ! I picked out a scope for my 300 WM a 4200 4-16 50mm a while back and while waiting for my new rifle I noticed Bushnell has produced a 6500 Elite 4.5 - 30 50mm. Is this 6500 a hunting scope? is this 4.5x - 30x for real? Any thoughts and info appreciated, Thanks

    Do you already have your 4x16

    I really like the looks of those new 6500 Elites. Its all about weight.

    I have the Elite 4200 6-24x40, but may sell it to get the Elite 6500 4.5-30x50 only because it has 90 MOA of adj. which is good to dial out to 1,000 yrds or more easy.
