The optics on elcans are super clear. You will be happy with the scope but I'm not sure 6x is enough for a 700 yard shot (at least for me)

A Premier 3-15 or 5-25 is the best optic for that platform. I have an SRS with a 5-25 on it. I was running a vortex pst but made the upgrade to the Premier due to its one of a kind features that make it a PERFECT match to the DTA. If you EVER plan on running more than one caliber on that set up its worth spending the money on a Premier.

My goal was pure function but damned if it doesnt look sexy.
