I have a Remington 700 chambered in .300.  I'll be doing bench shooting at a range, mostly at the 1000 yard range.
I'm looking to get a tactical scope, variable powered, not illuminuated (don't want to deal with batteries), I don't want to spend more than either one of these cost.....Or should I be looking somewhere else?

I dont think the Bushnell 6500 is on the street yet but I would rather wait for it than go with the Burris. One thing that you must realize about getting to that magic 1000 yard mark is that not all scopes have enough internal adjustment to do that. If you are shooting at a range in the daylight and nobody is shooting back why not a Super Sniper in a 10x or 16x or 20x fixed power and only $299. Most guys like the 10x but the others are fun also I had a 20x and for benchrest daylight it was great.

I agree with Urimaginary here, I'd wait just a while for the 6500.
