Scope for a flattop AR
I'm in the desert. Some brush, shots from 50 yards to 300 yards.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
If shooting at small varmints, I'd get something with magnification.
theres a reason the 3-9 power scope is so popular.
I just put a Redfield Revolution on mine, I like it.
I have a Nikon Coyote Special and it's it's nice. I also have a 1x4 counter sniper which I used on it before. Either is fine but if you want close to far then the 1x4 would be the best I think. That way close shots you are already zeroed for unless you want to guesstimate the range and adjust.
3x9 is a good compromise. I have a 1.5-4 Leupold on the gun I'm taking deer hunting this year. Shots can be anywhere from 25 yards to 300 where I hunt. We'll see how that works out.
IOR 2.5-10x42 FFP, running one on my Rem 700 and cant wait to get another for my 20" SDM rifle. Paid $700 on gunbroker.
I like the Nikon 3x9 mounted on a Burris PEPR.
Thanks guys. I ordered a Leupold 3X9X40 VX-R ballistic. Hope to have it mounted for this weekends coyote contest.
How did you do with the new scope and the dog hunt?
3-9x50 Leupold. I always recommend the 50mm because it gives you a big field of view. This can come in handy when acquiring a running target. Its not a real big price difference between the 40mm's and the 50's anyway. Plus the 50's look cooler
My coyote gun uses a Burris fulfield II 3-9 mounted in a LaRue
I also use this one Burris Tac 30 1-4 soon to get a LaRue mount
I have a couple Nightforce 2.5-10x24s I use and love em. Usually keep them at 2.5x.
I bet a Leupold MK4 SPR 1.5-5x24 would be good too.
