What do folks think of this scope?  I read Ilya's site on Tweener Scopes and this scope jumped out at me.  I am continuing to research for a Ruger No.1A in 303B.  I don't hunt anymore but found myself constantly looking at outfitting the gun as a hunter with a DG scope.
 
With target shooting and centrefire rifle plinking as the rifle's mission I am considering moving to this style of scope.  The low end is required and the eye relief would suit my shooting style.
 
Anyone use this scope or have experience with this series?
 
It is a tad heavy but not a problem.  I am wondering why it would be heavier than many comparable scopes?

ILya is on vacation right now and won't be back for a few weeks. We'll let him know about this thread when he returns.
For me, everything about this scope says that it is something I want on a .06 or similar class rifle. The glass is in the 4200 realm. I think that the added features of the 6500; more eye relief and larger zoom range are a great benefit. The top range Bushnells are an excellent choice in the sub $750 bracket in my opinion.

It is heavier because the erector system for 6.5x zoom ratio is pretty heavy. 

Overall, it is a very nice scope and my only complaint with it is the reticle.  I think a thicker reticle would work better with it.

Thanks, the reticle is not to much of a problem for my needs.

I agree on the reticle, they need to have a 4A
