Recommendations for a 308 tactical scope. $500-750?

Recommended Posts

I'm setting up a dedicated DMR-style .308/7.62 rifle, and I want a compact, relatively low-power scope in the 4x-8x range. One of the Bushnell AR optics would be perfect, but they don't make them for the .308 any more, seemingly.  I plan to be shooting this at no more than 200-250yd and I don't need a lot of bells and whistles, although an illuminated reticle would be nice.

 

Tips and suggestions gratefully appreciated...

Love my Bushnell Tactical Elite 1x6. The BTR-2 reticle has mil graduations so ranging and holdover are simple. If you watch you can find these well under the msrp, got my last one for $400.

IOR Valdada M1 or M2 with either the MP9 nato or Dragunov Reticle. There is also a CQB reticle available but I have no experience with that one.  Ran both of the others on my M1A and never had any problems. 4x24mm/30mm tube, superb glass, Illuminated reticle, built like a tank. Only downside for me was they have eye relief on the order of an ACOG. Pretty short but would not be a problem on a AR like it was on my M1A. They run about 700-800 or so new, used ones go for about 350-500. Cannot say enough about the Dragunov reticle. Zero the rifle/scope, reticle does all the work from there on out. Range finder is spot on also.

Burris XTR II 1-8. They can be found on the used market in the upper end of your price range. I just bought one lightly used for $780 shipped.

Primary arms has a good selection in that magnification range brother

So they do.  I scored a lightly used Primary Arms 1-8x24 ACSS scope, and even got a discount deal on a Burris PEPR mount. Perfect!  Exactly what I wanted.

 

The gun is a DPMS LR-308 APU4 with a Ballistic Advantage 16" barrel, Aero Precision M5 Atlas handguard and a Matador Arms Hammerhead compensator. CMC straight 3.5# trigger...pretty good trigger for the money.
