Well I ordered a bushnell 4200 4-16x50 and the elite rangefinder. However the rangefinder is no long available and my scope shipped. I will be getting the legend 1200 rangefinder instead. I talked to bushnell and they said I can ship the scope back unopened for exchange of a different scope as I was told the rangefinder was in stock and wanted to spend my alloted ammount. So now with the cheaper rangefinder I have more for the scope... looking at either the 2.5-16x50 with either the fine x or mil dot reticule or the 2.5-16x42 BDC style reticle. All scopes will be the 6500 series. So which reticle and why? I wanted the doa before but its 42mm instead of 50. They all also have 30mm tubes which means I have to change my rings as I was coming from standard 1" rings. So tell me which scope to get and why? It will be placwed on a 7mm-08 remmington model 7. Thanks in advance!

I would go with the 2.5-16x42 with a mil-dot reticle if it were me.  You can mount it lower to maintain the cheek weld on the rifle.  I like the mil-dot for ranging and can be used for holdover if you do your math and target practice.

Man I was looking at the mil dot and it seems like it would take me a considerable ammount of time to be able to use it even when I get used to it. so I'm leaning towards the multi-X since the DOA doesnt support my load...

  Hey Emin,WELCOME to OT!
 
  I guess the first thing we need to know is what brand of scopes do you have access to.

Well nevermind. Bushnell wopnt let me return the unopened scope and buy the 6500 series. I called ahead of time to make sure everthing was in stock and they said yes. So I bought the scope and rangefinder to find out the rangefinder had been discontinued quite a while ago. So now when I called they said sure ship the scope back and upgrade. And now because of how I ordered it(through work) they won't let me do that. So ill be keeping the 4-16x50 4200 series. Was really looking forward to the compactness of the 6500 like I guess I should have done before but live and learn I guess.

  What about this from their web site:
 
     "No Questions Asked" one- year replacement (U.S. only)
 
   I thought if you didn't like it you could return it.   Arizona still in the U.S.?  LOL

There are a bunch of states passing legeslation to stop the Fed. from imposing unfair burdens onto them, and IT IS ABOUT TIME.
 Like them or not this new governing body has absolutley no respect for the Constitution, they just do as they want and is time for the states and the people to put a STOP to it.
 I not going to get on my soap box but this sure isn't the place I grew up in anymore.

Ok here's the deal. Since I ordered it through work and directly from bushnell and not a dealer I get no refund, no return and possibly no warranty... Where the benifit for the way I ordered it. I think it will go up for sale new and un-opened. Just need to get 50 posts in first and get the scope.

i may be wrong but Bushnells warranty is lifetime so it should have warranty with it just FYI.  When you say you ordered it through work what do you mean, like a sporting goods store?

OK heres the scoop. I do maintain full repair warranty. I just dont get the refund/exchange option since I ordered it through a military/police/fire program. I spoke with the director and she was extremely nice and helpful. Basically they had to stop doing the refund/exchange on the program because they were having a ton of issues with people buying 3 or more scopes/optics and using them till they found the one they liked and returning the rest for full refund. I'd imagine you could do that if you were paying retail but since its through the M/P/F program it isnt allowed. I will likely put it on my other gun and order a 6500 for my current gun. we will see. I may not even open it as my brother who is also able to get the M/P/F program is interested... we will see...
