Boy, Aught 6 is kind of a punishing round, I would really hesitiate to put something like BSA on there thinking you were done. They don't have the best track record as others have stated.
That would depend on the configuration of your AR. If you have a longer barrel ( 18" or 20" ) then I could see going with a 3x9, or a 4.5 x 14 which I actually like on a mid range gun. Good field of view, limited magnification where you need it, gives you the ability to look across the frist few hundred yards with great clarity. If you aren't planning on lobbing rounds out to 600 or 700 yards, I think the 3 x 9 / 4.5 x 14 is a real good choice.JD, since we are on the topic of scopes, what would be your suggestion to put on a M4. I want some magnafication so I am not looking at red dots or eotechs. I was thinking like a 3x9 as well. Maybe I might just save up some more money and put a bigger badder Leup. on the 7 mag and move the Nikon over to the AR. What are your suggestions.
Well, you can't start a post like this and just leave it half filled out. Spill it all out there brother - what specifically are you fielding and when did it start going downhill? Who made your upper, your lower, your barrel - how many rounds do you have downrange? The whole nine yards. Let's examine this just like you walked into the shop with the same complaint, but I won't be charging you by the hour.My AR has a 16" barrel, I love hunting pigs, and I want to start taking head shots on them. I don't know, I just got frustrated last week when I was shooting and the best group I could get from the iron sights was 3"s. I got pissed off and decided to scope it. That was why I made the other post about ammo. I am just trying to get everything right, so I can make head shots at 100-150 yrds at night.
