I heard they were supposed to be around $899 and that SWFA will be the first to get them.

SWFA I think has a couple of price quotes? Oh I didn't know they were suppose to be first. Has any one ever bought a scope from the "Optic Zone" They have much better prices?

SWFA lists the following basic models.4.5-30x50 Elite 6500 30mm Rifle Scope2.5-16x50 Elite 6500 30mm Rifle Scope 2.5-16x42 Elite 6500 30mm Rifle ScopePretty pricey for a Bushnell scope. $$$ That's incredible for them to have a 6.4 X zoom on a variable rifle scope. :roflmao3[1]:

Oh yeah! A fellow shooter at the range today has the 4.5-30x50 on his Savage 22-250. Says it just came in this week and he just got it sighted in. Man, 300 yard shots with this scope are something else! With the power set at it's highest setting, you could even see the paper get punched out at 300 yards!!! Of course his rifle has a muzzle break on it to kill the barrel jumps and recoil but man, this is my next scope! You can look thru and see clearly from edge to edge and the eye relief is huge. Gotta be over 5". He says he paid $900 for it from Optics Planet. Looks good too and side focus is smooth.

Hey dude why did you post a reply? I'm reporting you to the top. I'm trying hard to pay off some bills. Hey don't even buy any thing off the optics planet. They under FBI surveillance for ties to the Junta in Burma.The "Optic zone" is where I bought my 2.5x16x50MM for $639.00. The scope you saw at range today is I believe under $800 at the "Optic Zone" in MI.............

One of my hunting partners went online to Optic Zone and purchased a 4.5-30x50 Bushnell 6500. Says he should have it in a couple of weeks because they were out but were receiving some soon. He paid $739 for it. I can't wait to see what it looks like on his heavy barrelled .223 Tikka T3. He said the price was too high on Optics Planet.
