Location: Monument, CO
Recently picked up a Anschutz 1517 in 17 HMR and curious on folks opinion on the Bushnell 2.5-16x42 Elite 6500 as a scope to mount on it. Plan to use Talley one piece scope mounts.
Purpose is 80% paper punching at 100 yards with the remaining time spent small game hunting. I like the magnification range and Ilya's review seems favorable, although the reticle I'm looking at is their fine multi-X with covered turrets.
Aesthetics of the scope fit the lines of the 1517 and as flat shooting as the 17 HMR is, I don't see much need for anything outside of a thin multiplex reticle.
Welcome any experiences with the scope or other recommendations.
