    Also look @ the Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x40 for around $300.00

    Model # is 325154T

    Saw and used one for a day, great little scope for the price.

    You can find the 4-16 Sightrons for $400 if you shop ebay. I've got the 10x version of the Bushnell and for the money it's nice, I assume the 5-15 would be to.

    If you go the Bushnell route, check it out at Bruno Shooters Supply

    Email Amy, she will take care of ya. Their prices are $30 - 50.00 lower than other sites for the model I mentioned.

    **They sell the 4.5-30x50 6500s for under $700 while others sell them for 850 - 900.00, I stopped asking how they can do it and just keep buying from them :)

    Definitely go Bushnell. I had the 5-15 Tactical and loved it. Very clear, great quality scope for the price. Very good turrets too.

    Ebay has a 10% off coupon for the month of June. I just got my bushnell 6500 4.5-30x50 for $635.

    To not hijack, it is replacing the Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x40 tactical. I had if for about 6 months and loved it. I would wholeheartedly recommend it. I wish the 6500 had the turrets.:mad:

    I need to stop buying scopes, but that would mean I'd have to stop buying rifles and that ain't gonna happen lol. Thanks for the heads up.

    If I get a 6500, it's going on a Sendero .300rum. But if I can be patient, I'll send Shawn some $$ for one of his Edges and wait it out, and maybe next year I'll get one of Kirbys sexy rifles. Yes I said sexy damnit, if you don't drool at the rifles those 2 fellas make, ya got issues :)

    Burris makes Ruger to Weaver adapter bases. I don't like the idea of an extra piece in the mix but I've not found a better solution for a Ruger if you want different rings.

    Bushnell is the way to go for awesome inexpensive scopes, my cousin Aaron (sniper VLS) has the Bushnell 4200 elite 6-24x50 and it is incredible how good the glass is inside. Great scopes for great prices. I also have a Bushnell, its a 3200 elite 10x42 and for the money, nothing else can touch the quality, its a tough little scope that will last as long as you keep it clean that is =)

    That is a fantastic price, on a good optic. My question is: Why are you supporting an eBay vendor???
