We have quite a few options from Nightforce, Vortex, Burris and others all over that price range. Feel free to call us at 916-670-1103 and I'd be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each.

The Vortex Razor Gen II 1-6x24 is a nice scope. Check them out.

I don't have one, but the new Vortex Diamondback scopes in FFP have been really tempting for me...

As a general rule of thumb $ scope > $ rifle. A DD5 is a pretty great rifle with a retail value around $2900 new. You may want to re-assess your glass budget. Spend the money once, get it right as great glass will outlast what it is attached to - this goes for rifles and camera bodies alike.

The products referenced in this thread are all varying degrees of ďgoodĒ and would work on rifle length AR-15ís as a great compliment. But I donít see them as really the right mix for a DD5.

Trijicons acog 3.5x35, red chevron or red horseshoe dot, I like the glass, its tuff, and seems to complment anything it rides on. At 1,2 and out to 4 would almost be like cheating.

Depends on what you want to do. I really like the vortex strike eagle 1x8. It has a bdc that is set up to 600 for .308
