Ruger SR-556 AR-15

Postby DMan on Tue Nov 10, 2009 8:58 pm

OK. Admittedly, I am a newbie to all things AR-15. I just recently purchased a Ruger SR-556 and am searching for assistance as to what type of scope will work the best for this rifle. I am using it primarily for target, though hunting isn't out of the question. I am open to any and all advice for outfitting this rifle with a good quality scope. Thanks

On my flat top for most universal purposes I have a Leupold VX-III (now VX-3) 4.5-14x50 installed in Burris extra high XTR rings with a picatinny top, and on top of that I have a Burris Fast Fire. This set up works well for me from zero to hundreds of yards, and has a large enough exit pupil for evening hunts. Any quality scope of similar magnification will work. I like the Nikon Monarch series quite a lot.
