Elite 6500 Riflescopes

Oct. 2008

Overland Park, KS - With a 6.5x magnification range (1:6.5 ratio from low to high power), the Elite 6500 riflescopes offer one of the widest zoom ranges in the industry. These scopes have proven their popularity with target shooters, hunters and tactical marksmen. 


Bushnell adds three new models for 2009. For those who hunt in brush country with lever-actions, compact rifles, shotguns or muzzleloaders, the new 1.25-8x32 with 5 inches of eye relief is a great choice.  The lower 1.25x magnification is perfect for quick, easy target acquisition in heavy cover, and the 8x top-end magnification provides versatility for longer range shots. The Multi-X reticle is also standard. 


The two new Elite 6500 tactical scopes include a 2.5-16x42 and a 4.5-30x50.  Bushnell has developed a new tactical matte finish to further reduce glare and reflection. Also new are tactical-style turrets for easy finger-tip adjustable windage and elevation controls. They are available with Mil-Dot reticles.
