Default Best 10-40x50 scope for AR15 CR6724 at 200 yards

I am looking for a 10-40x50 scope to add to a accurized AR15 CR6724 shooting at 200 yards.


I am familiar with the March 10-80x56 scope but at $4000 too pricey for me. The next most powerful that I know is 10-40x50 with several companies offering models, none of which really stand out to me. I would like to not go over $400 by much.


Am interested in feedback from anyone who has experience with these scopes. I am shooting for accuracy.



Thanks in advance,

Wizzzard

OK? What are you looking at, at 200 yards that needs a 40 power? I think that would make a mouse the size of a moose.
I was thinking you was going for loooonnng distances, say 1000yards.

For the money, this scope is about as good as it gets

$400 isn't going to buy much of a scope if you're wanting high magnification. You dont need much magnification to shoot 200 yards.

On my long distance rifles, i have Nightforce 5.5-22x56, Bushnell Elite 4.5-30x50, Burris Black Diamond 8-32x50, Leupold Mark 4 4.5 14x50, but you're not going to get a Top of the line scope for $400.

Your best bet for a good scope in the $400 range is gonna be a Nikon Buckmaster in 6-18 or 6-24x?

To get one in the power range and variable magnification you want, will cost $3,000 and up. You start going above 20 power, you NEED great glass to keep things from blurring due to how all the glass inside scope is designed and stacked to work. Most scopes have upwards of 7 different sets of glass to make work. The more glass you have to get the magnification, the more problems you run into on higher powers and the larger the scope needs to be to house what's inside that scope to make it work.

I know you could get a fixed power scope for less than $500 in the Weaver T-36. Good reviews, but very limited in its usage due to the power. Weaver does make a T-24 which could be better for all-around 200yd shots, but again still limited in its usage.

I would look at Camera Land who is a sponsor here, or SWFA to possibly find what you want as they have scopes w/prices you might be able to live with.
