Have you considered a 308 ACOG?

NightForce NXS 2.5-10X will do the trick. Use one on my SCAR 17s.

Depends on what you want to do with your rifle.

Other options for less money include the Vortex Razor 1-6X, the Leupold VX6 1-6X.

There are many options, but I don't care for fixed magnification on a rifle that can shoot 7.62X51 ammo. And I think magnifiers with a red-dot are about as useful as wings on a pig, especially for the 7.62 round.

If I had the money, I trade up my TA11 for the Vortex Razor Gen II ONLY IF they got a new reticle other than the miculek reticle. They really botched the release on that.....I mean come on, not everyone is a 3-gunner.

Until then, I'll keep my TA11, because it really is a great scope and I have no complaints other than I can't see as well at 3.5x vs the 6x on the vortex.

This is on a 308 AR....
