Hey guys,

Im trying to keep everything with in $250-300. Would prefer a mil-dot type scope, so I can learn how to use it...but not necessary.

What are your suggestions...?

Thanks in advance! :)

Is that even possible? My scope base was $250.

The one that says "Special Ops" on it! Just save your $$ until you can afford better. Irons are your new friend.

bushnell elite 3200 fixed 10x is the best low price mil-dot scope. burris pepr,nikon,rra,or armalite scope mount is your best bet for good quality and lower price mount.

If you give up mil-dot and target turrets and settle for good quality optics and solid build quality you can scope your AR and stay in budget. For a non-illuminated CQB style scope I like the Weaver V3 1-3x20 (http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=WE849400). For more magnification look at a Weaver V10 2-10x38 (http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm?contentID=productDetail&brand=WE&prodID=WE849403). While it's true that the best mounts are $200+ you aren't going off to war and a Burris Q.D. P.E.P.R. mount (http://swfa.com/Burris-AR-PEPR-QD-1-Scope-Mount-P48181.aspx) will do you just fine. Get SWFA to price match and you'll save enough on shipping to just about pay for flip-up covers and still come in just over $260. More magnification (http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=WE800477) than that in a decent scope will blow your budget.

Nice, but I'd like a variable, instead of a fixed scope.

A mount is a mount - I dont know why they're so expensive. It's simply a piece of metal that holds scope and fit on your picitany rail. Anyways...:rolleyes:... So, let's say we take the mount out of picture (will set another budget for it). But I've got up to $300 to spend on a good scope (+/- $$). What's the best choice then...? I was thinking Nikon, Millet, Weaver, bushnelle...etc...something mid-range.

Thanks.

A mount is a mount when you're punching paper - as long as it holds zero, over and above that repeatabilty when you remove and put it back on is a huge plus. For your needs a Burris QD P.E.P.R. is just fine. On the other hand if you were going to be staking your life on it for a living then a LaRue makes good sense. With the LaRue you're paying for additional ruggedness (machined vs cast aluminum) and 1MOA repeatability.

I don't shoot at those distances but just make sure that whatever you buy has enough adjustment and enough quality to see the target clearly. At 600yds you're looking at roughly 50-60" of bullet drop.
