It looks as though Nikon is paying attention. Scopes specifically for the 308 AR. If they are priced right Nikon will have a winner here.


The new M-308 4-16x42 represents Nikon’s Precision AR Optic technology for heavier caliber rifles capable of long-range accuracy. Designed for extreme sighting speed and superior long-range accuracy with the popular 308 Win AR platform rifles, the new M-308 4-16x42 features a choice of either the new BDC 800 reticle, or Nikoplex reticle and precise Rapid Action Turrets, each calibrated for the trajectory of the .308 Win/7.62 NATO Match round with 168gr. HPBT bullet. The high magnification range zoom makes it the ideal optic for AR10 platforms as well as for long range bolt action rifle applications. Includes M-308 one-piece mount, with built-in 20 MOA slope.

How much range do you think one could get out of this setup brother Drew?

Hi Guys  I think that the nikon ar 308 scope is a bad buy. Ive bought 2 Monarch 8x32x50 scopes and they had the ed glass....they cost just bout the same price...but geez look at the better optics you get with the Monarch...and for 90 bucks more you can have a custom turret built by Nikon  for your specific ammo....just sayin :)  Wash

Wash, there are three (3) of those - which ones did you get? 

8-32x50ED SF (fine crosshair w/ dot)
8-32x50ED SF (Nikoplex)
8-32x50ED SF (BDC)

I can tell you that max internal adjustment on all three of those is 20MOA. 

On the M-308, you get the hash marks out to 800, and max internal adjustment is 40MOA.  Combine that with a 20MOA rail or scope mounts, and you've far out-distanced those Monarchs that are available, for this platform.  <thumbsup>

True Tom...

But if you jump to the Monarch Gold, you get a 30mm tube and double the M308's internal adjustment to 80MOA, with the 2.5-10x magnification.

2.5 is great for acquisition, 10 is plenty to focus in.

Hi 98  the Monarchs I have  are the 8-32x50ED SF (BDC)  they cost 545 bills where I found em.... farthest  we have shot em is 500 yds ...one has the custom turret ....it starts with a 200 yd zero can go down or up to 700 yds using the FGMM 168gr....the other one I have dunno how far out it will take me  but I think the glass would be superior to the ar308...well at least the magnification/glass and if needed to reach out and touch something I can always get a sloped moa scope mount for it
:)  Wash

Wash, you hit those scopes for some damn good prices, too!  <thumbsup>

When I was scope shopping, couldn't figure out why some Monarchs were twice as much as others, as dipwads on GB were just advertising them as "Nikon Monarchs".

Once I realized there were 1" tube Monarchs and 30mm tube Monarch Golds, I shopped a bit more.

That will probably be my choice when I replace the Redfield on the Freedom Machine.

Wonder if anyone will trade me a 30mm Nikon 223 mount for a 1"...

So which one is better? I was going to get the M-308 with BDC-800 reticle. I found this one onine for $519.00, I think it includes the Nikon 1-pc mount too (with rebate). The mount has a 20 MOA slope built in, what does that do?

OK, I just bought the Nikon M-308 with mount. Any advice on zeroing it? Is it different with the 20moa slope mount?

Zero it just like any other optic.  The 20MOA mount just gives you more capability to dial in drop at greater distances.  You'll initially be cranking your elevation wheel alot more during the zero process.
