I am returning my Nikon Coyote Special (hate the reticle) and leaning towards a 6500. Anyone use this Elite in the field? Good alternative choice for a 22-250? Seems like it but I won't really know until I get it on the rifle at the range and of course, in the hills.Also, has anyone tried placing a sheer stocking over the scope to conceal it and prevent the inevitable glint off the glass from the sun? If the Coyote Special's glare reflector works, why wouldn't a sheer stocking...they're probably even available in a camo pattern and/or secured with a camo flexx wrap.Maybe something like this?

I have a several Bushnell Elites. Two 6500s. The 2.5x16x50 is perfect for Coyote hunting.I have one mounted on my AR-15. I can pick out yotes from sage brush with ease .

I just picked up a 4.5-30x50 for my Savage 223. I like the scope a lot, good clarity, easy to adjust. The ability to reset your turrets to a zero without tools is a nice feature. The 6x zoom range is really nice. I have a 4200 on another rifle which a l really like as well and is the reason I picked up the 6500 Amazon has a smoking deal on the 4.5-30x50 with the fine Multi-x reticle for $510 as of 7/21/09. This is about $150-$200 cheaper than any other price I could find on the net. They have this scope listed in about 5 different places with 5 different prices ranging from $510 to $949 so follow the link below to the cheapest price. The best price on the 2.5-16 is $650.Amazon 6500 DealGood LuckJim

Warning: Objects in scope may be further away then they appear! LOL Great scope, excellent field of vision and easily dialed in to guarantee a vitals shot.

I have one on my CZ527. It's the 2.5-16x42 model and it works excellent. Super bright and clear from edge to edge. It's performed flawlessly for over a year now. Get one and you won't be disappointed. I'm waiting for my new Mossy Oak Brush Nikon Camo Coyote scope in 4.5-14x40 to come in. It's going on my R15.
