I just bought a 6.5 Creedmoor in the Ruger Precision Rifle and needing a scope. I was thinking the Elliminator but having second thoughts. Any long range guys on here have any suggestions for me.

Thanks Wil

Nightforce shv, vortex viper hslr ffp, sightron si3, or leupold mark 4. NF holds value the best.

I would add to that list the Bushnell Elite Tactical. It's FFP with Mil/Mil as well.

Dangit! If forgot they have some within his budget. I have the Bushy ERS 3.5-21 and it has performed perfectly. It retails at SWFA for $2k, but can be found under $1500 elsewhere.

I've been thinking about that for my new rifle. I have a suspicion I will go back with the PST though

There's better options than the PST if you put just a tad more money on top of PST budget.

In that budget I'd look for a used gen 1 Razor.

They are really nice for the price. Solid scope too.

Seeing lots of good things about them. Burris sells to Fire, Police, and Military at a significant discount. The 3-15X is on my short list for the AR in .308, and pull double duty on the 7 Rem Mag. Night Force SHV F-1 is also on that list.
