I just got a Remington 700P in .308 Win and I´m loking for the rigth scope. BUSHNELL ELITE 4200 6-24X50 TACTICAL MIL DOT or BUSHNELL ELITE 6500 4.5-30x50mm TACTICAL MIL DOT ??? To shoot from 100 yds up to 1000 yds I think a 20 moa mount will work, but I need advice on which mount and rings to get. Aluminium or steell??? Which sizes of rings??? Thanks for any advice.

Get the 6500.  The 4200 only has 50 MOA of internal adjustment, you may not be able to get a 100 yard zero if you add a 20 MOA base.  The 6500 has around 80 MOA of adjustment I believe.

Or if you want more expensive stuff, look at Seekins, IOR, Badger, Nightforce, TPS.

Also in my opinion the bushnells do not have good enough glass for that much magnification to be beneficial.  Everything above 18x ish will not be very usable for you.  So really no need to get one that goes to 30x, 24x is pushing it.  I have an IOR 3-18x and it has much better glass than a bushnell and even with it when I get around 16 to 18x image quality really starts to suffer.

The 4.5-30x50 Elite 6500 has the same amount of adjustment as the 6-24x50 Elite 4200: about 50MOA.  If you need a lot of adjustment range, Elite 6500 2.5-16x42 is a good way to go.  Another good option is Sightron S3 6-24x50.
