I have spent a lot of time on here and talking to some professionals I know, and this set up makes a lot of sense, even if it was twice as much as the ACOG. My buddy's point is with this setup I don't really have to buy another scope ever again. I can put it on whatever rifle I get, zero it, record the changes I made, and be good to go back to the other rifle very quickly and easily.
The 3.5-15 made sense to me too. Why limit myself to a fixed 4 power? You guys were right.
The ACOG makes sense to me on my Sig 556R chambered in 7.62x39(I have the 3x32 on that one, with the x39 reticle) because that is a 200 yard gun at best, and is truly only minute of man with that round. This is why I was leaning towards the ACOG in the first place.
Thanks guys for setting me straight.

Your going to love the scope. I had one on my savage 10fcp-sr but the wife claimed it and my scope.

I detest larue mounts. Im CONSTANTLY removing and replacing my acog on my bcm carbine and i found the poi shifts over time due to the cam lever digging a small trench under the rail...

I switched tonadm mounts and havent looked back. Ive found that repeated on many many repititions the larues do not hold zero. The adm mounts have not shifted after a year of use and tons of mount dismount cycles.

Yes i think larue is mostly hype. Heresy but thats my opinion.

I'm sorry you have had a bad experience with Larue. I personally I have one Larue mount for my Aimpoint, so far it has performed as advertised, but I have only removed it and re-installed it a handful of times. I don't think I will be taking this scope off of this rifle all that often, it is just nice knowing that I can, at least a handful of times. That I have proven to myself.
Thank you, as always for your input.

I have a Bushy 308 with a with a 4x12 VXR in a BoBro, not sure about it holding zero after removal but it doesn't skin up the rifle.
