12X is plenty of scope to reach way past 500 yrds. I took a deer at 289 yrds with a 2 1/2 X soope. I shoot a fair amount of longer range, 500 to 700 yrds with a couple of different rifles. Any scope will work from the bench, but for hunting you will need target knobs on the scope. You will alos need to buy the best range finder you can afford and work up a drop chart. My 6-284 with 70 gr. bullets moveing at 3,700 fps will drop 12 1/2 in. between 400 and 500 yrds. Between 500 and 600 yrds. it drops 16 1/2 in. so you need to know your range and how much to dial up your scope.
