Looking for a scope in the $1200-1700 range to mount on a 6.5CM. Just getting into some longer range shooting and don’t see myself shooting over 1000 very soon or doing anything other than friendly competition (for now). Size and weight aren’t much of an issue as this will be a 90% range gun with an occasional trip to the box blind for deer on a bean field. Have looked at several options and major players are Burris xtr ii 5-25 with scr moa reticle, swfa hd 5-20, sig tango 6 4-24 scr moa milling, and saw a used Steiner t5xi 5-25 in my price range. If anyone could comment on these and any others that I haven’t mentioned, please let me know what you think.

I’ve had a Steiner T5xi and it’s a good scope and I liked it a lot but got that gun ADD and wanted to try something different so now I have a Athlon Cronus BTR and it’s great too (and worth looking into). I have a Sig Tango 6 4-24x50 in MILs with the Dev-l reticle new in box my wife thinks I should sell so if your interested send me a pm about it.

I would not hesitate to recommend a Cronus BTR! Turrets track accurately and glass quality punches above its price point.

It has been an excellent scope for me on a 6.5 Creedmoor RPR.

I think you mis-typed the reticle choice for the Sig scope. SCR is just on Burris and Steiner stuff.
All solid choices! I work for Burris/Steiner. We appreciate making your short list, and appreciate the support. Let me know if you've got any questions.

I run an XTR II on my 6.5 Creedmoor gas gun. It's an excellent optic choice.

I've used it as my long range drop gun at 3 Gun competitions, the PRS Gas Gun series, and as my whitetail rifle. It's always up to the task.
