Default 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

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.

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.

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.
