OK, don't get too frustrated with me, but I'm still trying to decide on glass for my LR308. I screwed around too long and the Bushnell Elite 4200 I asked about before was sold out in a matter of a few days. So here is my next dilemma: Bushnell elite 6500 4.5-30 x 50mm and Sightron SIII 8-32x56. I have a friend with dealers accounts several places and he says he would get me either of these at his cost. Again, this is a bench/bipod gun, LR308 with 24" heavy SS barrel. I'm no great shot by any means, but I'd like to buy a scope that will last on this gun and one that I won't outgrow as my skills (hopefully) improve. One of the 3 ranges I go to has steel at 1000 yards, but I'm nowhere near being able to think about hitting that, but maybe someday with some practice and the right load.
