What do you guys think about these scopes? I will be putting it on a heavy barrel 25/06. I have heard good reviews about the Elite 4200 scopes,but haven't heard much about these.
Before everyone starts in about other brands,I've got Swarovski,Nikon,Pentax,Mueller,Leupold,Seals,and BSA scopes on other guns so there's no need in saying this is better than that.
 
I just want to know if there are any issues/problems with the Bushnell Elite 6500.

Thanks guys. I was looking at the VX III 6.5x20 LR but they have been having some issues lately,and the Zeiss and Burris just don't have that much elevation adjustment on their scopes.

Well, not really.  

The overall image quality is similar between Elite 4200 and Elite 6500.

Beyond that, Elite 6500 is an entirely new design.  These scopes are comparatively compact and light.  More importantly, they have longer and much more flexible eye relief.

Coatings are of the same quality, but aside from the that and the place of manufacture, I doubt there is much if any commonality between Elite 4200 and Elite 6500.

Strange this came up

I was really checking out the Bushy 6500 2.5-16x42 tactical vs the SS 3-9x42 since they are really close in price.

What pushed me over the top was that EVERY review of the SS 3-9 said how fantastic it was and had equal or better glass than the 6500 series.
