can anyone recommend a good scope for DPMS LR-308? nothing to over the top like trijicon.
Stick with well known, major manufacturers, preferably US manufacturers, and you should be ok. It depends on what you want to use the rifle for, hunting, target, defense......? I tend to like Leupold scopes because I used to work for them and know 1st hand the quality that goes into their products. Plus they have a dyn-o-mite warranty. The down side is they tend to cost more, but then you get what you pay for. In my opinion, it makes no sense to put cheap optics on a quality firearm.
What are you wanting one for . Close up tactical ar ? Or for hunting that can cover all bases well from 50 yards to 400. Redfield ,leupold ,burris ,regular 2-7 up to a 3-12 plane jane Plex retical . Price can run from 150 bucks to 600. And all do the same thing well.
want one for up to 700-800 yards.
If your really planning on shooting at those ranges,you'll need a quality scope in order to see what your wanting to hit.
Of course not everyone can afford or wants to spend the big $$$$ on scopes from S&B,Premier,March,Zeiss Hensoldt,IOR Valdada,or Nightforce.
If you want a high quality scope that will do the job day in/out,and will keep you around the $1k mark,take a look at Sightron SIII and Vortex Viper PST scopes.
Leupold,Nikon,Burris,Bushnell,and Weaver also make some nice scopes,but I would still choose the Sightron SIII or the Viper PST over any of them for the money.
I personally like the Sightron SIII scopes and have 4 of them in 6-24x50,as well as Weaver's Super Slam and Classic Extreme scopes.The Weaver's clarity is right up there close to the Sightrons,but they don't have anywhere near the adjustment range for shooting really long ranges.But the weapons that they are mounted on are for shorter range calibers,223's and 458 SOCOM.
yea I figured the cost was high. but i wasn't sure in a brand. you guys helped alot and I really appreciate it thank you.
I have several of the Bushnell Elite 3200 Tactical 5-15X models mounted on 2 .308's, 2 .300 Win. Mags., and I like them so much I mounted one on my Bushmaster BA-50 .50 BMG rifle. They have sharpness and clarity that are as good, and in some cases better than many of my Leupolds. With 15X and using the Mil-Dot system, shots to 1,000 yards are obtainable if the shooter does his part. They run around $400.00.
thanks for the heads up I will Definetly look into those.
