Can someone suggest a nice scope for a sig 556r. chambered in 7.62. I have a very limited budget.

You didn't mention what "very limited budget" means to you, nor what you'll be using the gun for. A good all around choice for not a lot of money is the Nikon 3-9x50 Prostaff. It's a solid and bright scope, and the 50mm objective lens just adds a bit of weight, but gives you a significantly larger exit pupil. The larger size is not a detriment because you have to use extra high rings anyway on your platform. Get the excellent BDC reticle and use the Nikon Spot On Technology website to dial in your exact load for any range.

Thanks . sorry that i didn't post that it would be small game and sport. 50 to 150 yards is about all we can hunt in this area. mostly heavy wooded areas. thinking maybe 300 dollar max. Thanks again.
