I prefer the ACOG. but they are pricey.
Leupold, Nikon, Nightforce all make good units.
Personally, I would avoid anything made by Tasco, Bushnell, Simmons or anything else in their category. Good glass isn't cheap, but it's well worth the time and effort of saving up your money for a few months.
And for a 5.56X45, the 1.5-4X20 is near ideal. 2-7 and 1.5-6 are good. But you don't need 4-12 or even 3-9 on a .223.
For .308, 2-7 and even 3-9 are okay, but again, anything over 9x, IMHO isn't needed.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost
