Good day.

I can get one of these Bushnells for a very good price. Almost half the normal price around here. This has a mil dot reticle. The scope will be mounted on a 8x68s for hunting and shooting steel plates. Should I rather look at something else or are they decent scopes?

Thanks

Pieter

They are decent scopes from all accounts I've read.  I think for sub $500 they are a steal.

I have a 2.5-16x42 md on my .30-06 that I use for hunting. It's a great scope. I have had some nice glass and I think the 6500 is pretty dang good. It's bright in low light and the MD reticle is bold enough to hunt well past dark. Mine does have some white out on the upper powers in low light(14-16x)but aside from that, I can't complain ! Rainguard works great , which I appreciated last year when my Leica Ultravid bin's were totally fogged up  and some deer walked out into the field !
