So im in need of some assistance. I come from basically a bowhunting background, long range to me is 80 yds. And 250 yds with the smokepole. But im looking for a scope to shot my version of long range which is 500 yds with either a umm08 or a 6.5 creedmor. Im basically looking for a scope with a mildot reticle and a minimum of 4-12 power. I dont feel like id need the dials to get my 500 yd goal the mdotz shojld easily get me there. So whats out there guys?

Give this scope serious consideration:
Minox - Camera Land NY

I just put one on a rimfire.....really nice to have side focus. The glass is really nice for the money. Mildot is $279...open box Minoplex $189.99. This is my second Minox....and for the money....it's a huge bargain!

Have you ran a minoplex on a heavier recoiling rifle? That would be a strong consideration if it can stand up to some abuse, as i treat my guns like a tool not a work of art

Have one on a .308 rifle....absolutely no issues. So a 6.5 Creedmore or any of the .308 based cartridges would not be an issue....IMHO.
