That 1.5-6 scope would be ideal.
Set it at 1.5X and it will take care of 90% of your shots.
If it's too far to use 1.5X chances are you'll have time to crank it up to 6X.
Around here only place where we shoot beyond about 100 yards is out in the farm fields and there it could be 400 yards or more.

maybe it just needs a good eotech with magnifier in the future. this reticle seems promissing for hunting. backed with a good magnifier and backup flip up sights should be good to go out to 300 yards which is plenty since i plant to stay inside 200.

1t- will do def sticking with the 1.5, just seems more practicle.

For hunting use (like in combat) I like to keep everything as simple as possible. Also for optics with magnification, I like the traditional low power scopes as they are much brighter than holographic or red dot sights with magnifier behind it.

True i was just comparing the two and was thinking similar facts not to mention batterys and the fact that my 1.5x6 has enough power to shoot much more accurately, i tested the rifle with my friends eotech and its nice but wasnt crazy about it, my groups were way better with the 1.5x6, even better with the 10x but its overkill. back in ww2 snipers shot to 600 yards on a norm basis with fixed low powered scopes, iam confident in the 1.5x6, looking into a 1.5x10 with mils or holdoffs, if anyone has seen anything decent please point it out.someone with a dual purpose role.

I use a 3-9x40 it could use a lower power scope. They are common and easy to find, generally less expensive. I have a modified red spotlight that clips to the scope.
