Looks like I lined up the elite6500 instead but the specs are very similar. I would choose the 2.5x16 myself. 

I'm liking the Elite 6500 1.5x8 for the Whelen or 9.3 I'm looking at. More than I want to spend right now though.

What Happened?

What happened to the OP?

Here we had a nice little thread going, with back and forth discussion, and lo and behold nary a peep out of him for a spell?

Is he regretting his choice of a .300 Win Mag? How does it shoot? Or did he go hunting and git et by a bar?

I'm working up my second .300 Win Mag. Got Nosler Ballistic Tips shooting 0.7" and I'm looking to tweak that load a little. Also want to learn my sight of aim / point of impact changes from various field positions. Hence, I'll be shooting a lot.

Also, might have found a .35 Whelen to buy.
