Looking to put a scope on Kimber 8400 300 WSM with Select Grade wood Stock.  I am considering Bushnell 6500 Elite or IOR with Illuminated HR5?  Anyone with experience with either scope?  If there are any other suggestions, please let me know.  Both scopes would be 30mm.Whacko

IOR is a better scope, although a more expensive one. 

Elite 6500 will offer a greater magnification range and lighter weight. 

IOR will offer better optics and a more interesting reticle (HR-5 is a very well designed reticle, in my opinon) as well as illumination.

If you can afford IOR, it is a good way to go.
