Looking to purchase an optic
 
I can't make up my mind. From a scope or rds w/ a magnifier for my .223/5.56. I have some help along the way might be leaning towards a scope. Price range is bout $200. Don't have much to spend. Was looking at 1-4x24 for $115. I'll put up the page soon. Any more suggestion could me helpful while I'm still shopping around.

Range. Atleast 200 -300yds

Here's one of them. Couldn't find the 1-4x24 but it was an UTG

One would be hard pressed to do any better than the Nikon P223 carbine scope in 3x. It can be had for around 150 dollars including shipping. Nikon has a ballistic program that will match the scope cross hair marks to any load one may wish to shoot.

I have been using mine for several months and am extremely pleased. Nikon is a well made scope at a reasonable price.

Have you shoot anything else than 55gr with the scope n does it hold up

I have shot loads from 50 grains to 64 grains and have experienced zero problems. I am using the Nikon mounts which I also find to be excellent. Optical quality is excellent.

Here's the same scope at SWFA. You will be hard-pressed to find a bigger selection and good prices.

Cool. What was pricing for the mounts

You can do both in one unit. I have a Bushnell Trophy XLT 1-4X24 30mm tube Illuminated dot in a 4A reticle.

Shop the price. You still have a scope if your battery fails.

Another possibility but I dont know how good they are.
