    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.

    No circles, dots or balloons. Just regular cross hairs with range marks for the distance. The Nikon ballistic program works it all out for you. I bought mine from Optics Planet and had good service, the mounts were out of stock for a couple days but no big deal. The free shipping works well for me. If you look at the Nikon site it shows the cross hairs and has the "Spoton" ballistic program as well.
