I am considering either of these scopes for my next purchase. I don't currently own a "premium" optic and want to get something that has good glass, durability, in addition to having a wide magnification range. I was considering the 3-18 leupold with the illuminated reticle for around $1100, or the 2.5-16 bushnell for about $700. I have looked through the vx6 and the glass is amazing, but I can't find anyone that has experience with bushnell 6500 series. They both receive good reviews online, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with either of these.
