I just got a new Leupold VX-R 3-9x50 CDS, and my dad has a Bushnell elite 6500 2.5-16x50, he really likes the Leupold i just got a-lot, and wants to trade me straight across, should i make the trade or not? If i did i would be putting it on a Tikka T3 300 WSM for hunting elk in eastern Oregon, either way that is the rifle that a new scope is going on, i like both scopes, in fact i think that the Bushnell is a better scope, but i would loose the CDS if i traded him, any thoughts would help. Thanks: Mick

I think you would be coming out ahead on value if you traded, but just choose the scope you would rather have.  If you want the Leupy, I am sure SWFA can deal a trade with your dad for the same scope.

With a little bit of homework the MOA turretts on the Bushnell will be more accurate with more loads than the CDS style.  And if you like the CDS style I believe you can have kenton industries make you some turrett caps that match your load and are very similar to the CDS.  I would trade personally.  Good luck.

Scope quality aside, it's your dad.  If it wasn't for him you wouldn't be here. If he wants the scope give it to him. Scopes come and go, an opportunity to do a kindness for your dad come along rarely. Besides that you can get it back when he's gone.  Big Grin

Speaking as a Dad, this is the right answer!  Excellent

I agree as a dad that this is the right answer.
