Well now that I cancelled my order for the ACOG cause it was going to take forever, what scope should I put on the rifle now. Prefer maybe up to 14-16 power. It will be mounted on DPMS A3 flattop mini sass. I was going to spend 800 on the ACOG so anything up to that price range. Give me some suggestions...

Have you looked at the Nikon M-223?

The Rapid Action Turret allows you to dial in your elevation anywhere from 100 to 600 yards. You can also utilize the Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology with the BDC 600 reticle. If you are unfamiliar with the Spot On Technology, a tutorial can be found here:

They also make a 20 MOA mount that will fit on your DPMS:

outbrakeridah, what range do you plan to shoot? 600 yards plus or 3 Gun? Also What is your load and barrel length?

Anywhere from 1-600yds. Ranges will vary from the local gun ranges to BLM land. Planning to shoot 62-77gr depending on what the gun likes. The barrel is 18in.
It's a dpms mini sass. Got the pst 4-16 for now but not finish with the rifle yet so haven't taken it out yet.
