Hi all, Im new to the site and from the UK. Im looking for a bit of info if possible. Ive just bought a used Busnell Elite 6500 4.5 x 30 x 50 to go on top of my Remington 22.250. Its a nice piece of glass and overall Im impressed with it apart from 1 thing.....
 
At high mag 20x - 30x and viewing white objects such as a white paper target at 150+ yards Im getting some purple fringing(Chromatic aberration). It appears to be worse if my eye is not fully aligned to the lense. Is this to be expected on a scope that costs close to $900 in the UK? Or do I need to just get used to the 4inch eye relief. Anyone else got one of these and noticed similar?
 
cheers guys, Steve

Go with the 2.5-16x in the same scope....no reports of that happening and better internal adjustments (80 MOA)
