Default Looking for a ar scope.

Iím building a 20Ē ar for plinking and varmiting. I was wondering if any of you have a opinion on which is the better scope or if you have any suggestions on a better one then the two I have narrowed down.

First is

https://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-...iflescope.html

I like the reticle and pretty much everything about it.

Then there is this one

http://www.bushnell.com/all-products...ics/2-12x-40mm

Itís a little cheaper and has more magnification and also seems a little more compact. Any suggestions. Looking to order tonight.

Vortex Optics Viper HS Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 4-16x 44mm Side Focus Matte $339 with V-plex
https://www.midwayusa.com/product/24...de-focus-matte



Vortex Diamondback HP 4-16x42mm Riflescope I have two and like them side paralax is worth a few extra bucks. Shop around you might save a few bucks. My scopes have duplex reticle but would get dead hold if I had it to do over again.

Leupold's VX-1 and Vortex's Diamondback are good options for your price range. Also, watch the used market.
