    So a couple weeks ago i ordered a Bushnell Elite Tactical 6500 4.5-30x50 for my Marlin X7VH in 308. I mounted it on the weaver base that came on the gun and on Leopold Mark 4 30mm medium bases. I got it mounted last wednesday and just sighted it in yesterday. it took a whole 3 shots to get it sighted in and then then came up with the grouping in the picture! all 3 shots could fit under a penny! The group measured a whopping 5/16 of an inch at 100yds!!! The gun is completely stock with a 1:12 twist and winchester SuperX 150gr soft points from walmart. I shot off a picnic table with a bipod from walmart, and my hand as a rear rest. Im extremely proud of myself and my $329 rifle!

    I cant imagine how it would shoot once i turn the trigger down, with match ammo, a rear sand bag, and a new stock thatll free float the barrel.

    Sorry i guess i lied, i measured the holes again cuz my brother measured the first time and they were 7/16ths... Which is still .43 moa. I was going to edit my original post but I do not know how to do that yet.

    the model number for the Bushnell scope I have is ET4305. I got it from OpticsPlanet.com and it has the target turrets and it is supposed to have 90 minutes of adjustments but from what I can tell it only has 72, 36 up and 36 down, so I'm probably going to end up getting a 20 moa weaver base because I'm hoping to get into f Class competitions next year.
