k guys. I just sold my eotech, and need to get a new setup. I have a a4 flattop upper, and a rear arms#40 buis. My goal is to get a quality scope for short range to midrange shooting, need excellent eye relief, and my budget is up to $700, but would like to spend less if I can. Note, most of my shooting will be midrange. I also need recommendations on the mount and rings which is included in the budget. i am considering the leupold 3-9x x 40mm ($500), and the Nikon Monarch Scope 3-9x 40mm BDC Reticle Matte which i think packs on hell of a punch especially for the price for $230. Anything else should I be looking at? Is the leupold worth the extra bucks?

First off, you have an a4 upper, not an a2.

Second, consider the Bushnell 10x40 tactical. Itís made in Japan, has pretty good glass, has mil-dots, and also has great turrets.

Darn it.. I don't recall seeing a EOTech for sale from you! Anyhow, I would go with a fixed 4X power scope from IOR Valdada like this one: http://www.swfa.com/pc-2802-292-ior-4x24-tactical-30mm-rifle-scope.aspx

I would match them with the IOR Heavy Duty Tactical rings. I have a set sitting on top of of my 308 700P.. they get the job done. Not the cheapest.. but worth it.

I just bought a version of the Leupold 3-9x x 40mm scope for 145.00 its a very nice scope.

But then there is always this scope from bushmaster. It's still in my purchase list from bushmaster YES Even if its made in china.

I don't care that it's made in China as much as it's a crappy copy of a sub-par scope. The rangefinding is confusing and the POI likes to shift around (on the real $800 USGI ones)...

Sorry for the interruption and the thread drift, but Xeno, what does the above statement mean?

Can you clarify?

Using the BDC and their funky ranging=wandering zero.
