Scope: Vortex Viper HST 4-16X50
MSRP: $600
Gun you use it on: Sig 716 DMR
Style of Shooting: Target
Pros: Price is right. Holds its zero, turrets are solid and easy to read
Cons: This particular model of the Viper line is not illuminated, but I knew that when I purchased it so that is a con on my behalf.

Scope: Leupold Mark AR Mod 1 3-9X40
MSRP: $400.00
Gun you use it on: Custom built Remington 700 .308 16.5" barrel and lightweight chassis.
Style of Shooting:target and hunting
Pros: Great price for the quality of optics. Good strong, durable turrets that you can feel and know each click.
Cons: It does have an illuminated center dot but the illumination control takes a couple of times to get the hang of it. I really like this scope but wish it had come in a 30mm tube instead of the 1" tube it did come in.

SWFA Super Sniper Scope

Scope: SWFA Super Sniper Scope
MSRP: $300
Style of Shooting: Long Distance
Pros: Super Cheap! This scope was designed to be a budget scope for the U.S. military if I'm correct. It's Mil-Spec so its made for combat usage. VERY DURABLE! They had a military contract so you know its nice if it was made for military snipers. I would take this over a lot of scopes over $1000+
Cons: None!
I'll leave a link to where you can find it cheap.

Scope: Vortex Strikefire II red dot
MSRP: $240
Gun you use it on: DPMS .308 Recon Gen1
Style of Shooting: Plinking and paper punching inside 100yds. This is sort of my SHTF go-to rifle
Pros: Bright and clear, fast acquisition, I can shoot both eyes open. Seems to take abuse well. Very reasonably priced
Cons: The dot has a comma-ish shape to my eye. Apparently this is an issue for some people

Style of Shooting: paper-punching 100-500yds
Pros: Very clear and bright for the price. FFP. Side focus is pretty spot on for distance
Cons: Not illuminated, a little higher magnification would be nice. I've only done one range trip with it so far to check, break in, and sight in at 100 yds

MSRP: $719 (?) actual price $390
Gun you use it on: Savage 110 FCP HS Precision in .300 Win Mag

Wow!! That is a wide range of scopes and pricing. I believe that Nikon and Polaris are great brands. They both offer a wide range of pricing and options for the beginner hunter to the most experience.

Leapers

I will go out on the block to say this,but I have used Leapers optics’s on the majority of my
AR15 and AR10’s
6.5 Grendel 18” Black Hole Weaponary Black Stainless Polygonal Barrel
Geissele Super Semi-Automatic (SSA®) Trigger
Matching Set SunDevil Billet AR 15
UTG 16” Forearm M Loc
Magpul MOE Grip, Magpul ACS Stock
Leapers Rubber Armored Full Metal Bipod 6.0”to 8.5” Tall
Custom Cerakote Coyote Tan
This rifle at 100 yards will shoot one hole, basically it tears the X total out.

9MM Carbine With a Wilson Combat SS Barrel
Leapers UTG Compact Prismatic 4X32 T4 Scope T-DOT
Upper JD Machine Black
Lower Billet Spincraft 9MM Colt
Raise Trigger
KAK Shockwave Stock, Mag MOE Grip
Leapers 8” Forearm
This Carbine has no trouble being a 9 ring and better, we have had fun with steel out to a hundred yards.

5.56 16”Black Hole Weaponary Black Stainless Polygonal Barrel
Optics’s Leapers 6-24X56 30mm Scope Glass Mil-Dot
Geissele Super Semi-Automatic (SSA®) Trigger
This AR15 in built on A JD Machine Matching Bullet Set
Magpul ACS Stock and MOE Grip
MLoc 16” UTG Forearm
This rifle is another that can shoot under one each at 100yds. Very smooth shooter.

Subpar optics will break down at the worst possible time. Don’t cheap out. Having said that, use the right tool for the job!

Magnified optics over x3 have a place on long range caliber guns (.308/.300/.338 and anything that starts with.4 or.5).

An Ar15 platform is designed for close quarters. Nothing beats an Exps3 with a G33 – x3.5 magnified optic (shop around and it’s a $900 setup). There is no shot that can be made with a x6 magnifier that can’t be made with the G33!
Take your $1,200 in savings, get a tax stamp, and suppress your AR-15!

Can you use a Flat Head screwdriver to screw a Philips Screw? Yes, but why???

Use 5x25x56Tamgent Theta on PRS BOLT GUNS (2) and 5 NF from 15x to 7x35x56. Next-to Tangent Theta the NF 7x35x56 is Second most popular. Have several 5x25x56 S&B on older308 bolt guns...Prices run 2,000 to 5,000....

Went with lower price scope for years until I tried a S&B 5x25X56 and quickly learned in the long run I comeoutwayahead buy buying quality. Used NF in the 5x22x50 range can be found used and moved from gun to gun if the wallet is tight.
