I've put about 700 rounds down range with my 6500 in the last couple of months. It's my first Bushnell scope, and overall, I have no complaints. Everything works, and "Rainguard" actually does make a difference.
I compared this scope very closely with the Leupold VX3 and Zeiss Conquest. Of the three, the Conquest had the best glass, but if there was any difference between the VX3 and 6500, it was indistinguishable to my eye.
Of the three, the 6500 had the widest magnification range, most features, and lowest cost, so I decided to take a chance on it. So far, I'm pleased.
