I completely agree with the Russian on this one. I get questions like this daily, my answer is exactly as the Mad Russian says it unethical. Are you able to consistently make a 500 yard hit inside of a softball? If not i dont recommend taking the shot. IMHO our 3-9x42 MeoPro is the best suited scope for you it is also a hundred bucks cheaper. Most shots you will take will be +/- 70 yards, a 3-9 is more than enough power. If you have any questions feel free to PM me under this name or ASSAULTFUN i would be more than happy to discuss further and even demo the scope.Mad Russian said:Experienced hunters avoid shots at those ranges. As a matter of ethics: can you place the shot with enough accuracy to ensure a clean kill, or will the animal be wounded and suffer a slow death? As a matter of physics: will the bullet carry enough energy to effectively kill the animal?
500 yards shots on paper are not easy, and it doesn't get any easier in the woods.
