scope for ar 15

Postby rjoraw on Sun Dec 30, 2012 10:46 am

Got my son a AR 15 for christmas, trying to decide on scope. We live on a farm/ranch, so would be used for coyotes, badgers etc. Have three to four hundred to spend on scope. Have looked at FF 2 4.5-14x40, AR 536 A 5X, MTAC 1-4x24, FF TAC 30 4.5-14x42, 1-4x24 TAC 30 ILLUM 5.56. Tough to decide till you actually use them. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just a bit over your price (get a coupon from this forum), but try the excellent Nikon M-223 3-12x42 side focus with the BDC. I have lots of rounds through one and the BDC makes things simple from a trajectory point of view. From the choices you were looking at, it seems like it may fit the bill. Go to the amazing Nikon Spot on Technology website to download ballistic information that you can even print out and tape to your scope or gun. Great light transmission, tracks great, and has a superb reticle in a rugged product that will take all the abuse you can give it. With plenty of exit pupil at low magnification and at 12, lots of power for the long shots. Nice gift for your boy, enjoy!
