My M6A3 16" 6.8 is enroute and I'm trying to figure out which optic to go with...

I'm pretty sure that I'm going with a Leupold Mark 4 MR/T w/ illuminated reticle. The big choice is either the 1.5-5x20 or 2.5-8x36 M1 mil-dot. It'll be mostly for fun at the range, but I'm hoping to go deer hunting in northern MN and possibly pig hunting at Vandenberg AFB.

I keep leaning towards the 2.5-8 for the better zoom, but I like the 1.5-5 for the ability to be used as a pseudo red dot.

Pics of the rifle will follow as soon as it's in my possession, and then when it's all dressed up! :)

Ideally if you have the coin... US Optics SN-3s 1.8-10x on a Larue SPR..
I have an ACOG TA33 on mine...I was thinking of getting the Nikon M223 as I also like Nikon and they are reasonably price and better clarity than the leupy MK4s

US Optics are nice, as are the Nikons, but I really want an IR. Not to mention I have a good connection for the Leupold optics.

I have aimpoint on my it work, but I am now looking at the Trijicon to replace it.

I actually came across a good deal on a Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x24 this weekend, and I'm getting an LT-104 to tie it all together. Once it all comes in, and I find my camera, I'll get pictures!
