Refurbished - no problem

by Rob, from United States, CO Written on September 1, 2014
I had some doubt about buying a refurbished unit, but it looks brand new. I bought this because it has a very good range of power, adjusts down to 10 yards (good for indoor use), is not large, weighs less, and has excellent optics. Too bad the 4-30x does not adjust down to 10 yards. I recommend this product. Also, I bought it refurbished to save on $$$'s....

Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5/16 42

J'ai acheté cette lunette pour monter sur ma CZ 452 Warmint et à l'occasion sur ma M24 308W, je suis satisfait de la lunette pour plusieur raison, garantie à vie, facilités de réglage optique, réglage paralaxe, zoom, qualité des clics en élévation et dérive et pour une 6.5 en 42m/m elle est super clair, en plus pour un tube de 30m/m elle n'est pas trop grosse sur la 452 warmint, je l'aime beaucoup et je tir tous les dimanche avec de 50 @ 200m.

Value-for-$$$

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 2, 2012
I mated this scope to a brand new Remington 700 CDL in 7MM-08, and WOW, it's a great combination. I chuckle at all the other guys who have to use cheap spotting scopes just to see their paper holes @ 100 yds.

Straight away, I'd say if you need a spotting scope at 100 yds then you bought yourself a cheap and/or under-powered scope. I wear glasses, but at 10x power I can easily see every shot in my groups. Focus is perhaps not QUITE as crisp at max power, but certainly nothing I would complain about at this price point.

As you can see in the above "cons" section, the ONLY thing further on my wish list for this scope would be for the mil-dot reticle to be in the first focal plane, thereby allowing me to make up one set of ballistics cards for ranging in the field. I do, however realize, that getting that RIGHT is difficult, and may simply not be possible in this price category.

To my knowledge, Barska is the only maker offering FFP reticles...OTHER THAN the biggest name boys that cost 10 times more...Nightforce, Schmitty, etc.

I selected the non-target turret version, partially for esthetics, and partially because I don't need too great a degree of granularity from what is a deer hunting rifle...
Pros: Excellent glass, smooth, solid construction
Cons: Mil-dot reticle in 2nd focal plane...

Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x42mm

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 4, 2011
You can't really ask for much more with this scope for the price, the clarity is exceptional and with the 30mm tube allowing for slightly greater light transmission, you get a very bright picture in low light. The magnification range is handy for target shooting. Nice turrets, everything on the scope turns smoothly. If I was to be fussy and pick a couple of cons, I'd say the scope is a little on the heavy side and the fine multi-X crosshair is maybe a little too fine for low light scenarios.
Pros: Very bright, zoom range.
Cons: A bit heavy....

Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x42

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on June 9, 2008
Excellent scope for the money with great glass and side parallax adjustment. Maybe a little too bulky for carrying through the brush but overall a very versatile rifle scope. 16x zoom is great for spotting bullet holes in targets up to 200 yards away.
Pros: versatility
Cons: too bulky for small rifles...
Would recommend: Yes
