As an ultra-high-performance caliber designed for long range hunting and competition shooting, the 6.5 creedmoor is a demanding rifle that requires a high quality scope. In this article, I’m going to look at some of the best scopes for 6.5 creedmoor to help you determine which one is right for you. First, it’s important to figure out what you intend to use the rifle for. Do you plan to hunt big game, compete, or just plink? This will help you determine which features are most important in a scope.
What distance should you sight in a 6.5 Creedmoor?
If you plan to shoot beyond 1,000 yards, you’ll want a scope with a lot of adjustment range. With a standard mount/rings, the 6.5 Creedmoor can be shot to 1,760 yards (over a mile). That will require a lot of adjustment on your part, so you’ll want to make sure the scope you get has enough adjustment to hit your target at that distance.
The Leupold VX-3i LRP is the perfect scope for a 6.5 creedmoor, as it has all the features you’ll need for long range shooting. It has a long magnification range, which is ideal for both hunting and competition shooting. It also has a sleek design that makes it a great choice for light rifles and carbines chambered in the 6.5 creedmoor. The VX-3i also comes with a set of high-profile Picatinny scope rings, a removable honeycomb filter sunshade, spring-loaded flip-up lens covers, a lint-free cleaning cloth, and a CR2032 battery.
