Scope for AR10

Would someone mind suggesting a fixed power scope for my new .308 AR-10? I would like to be at or under 200 dollars. Not going for fancy or tactical, just practical.

Probably one of the best fixed scopes on the market

Fantastic, thank you.

Just curious. What would be a good zero for that scope? Thanks!

It depends some people prefer a 200 yd zero especially if used for hunting so that way you can pretty much hold the + dead on without worrying about "holdover" out to about 250-275yds because with a 308 you shouldn't be above or below the line of sight more than about 6" out to 275yds, but for target shooting and for me I prefer a 100yd zero and I get to know what my "Dial ups" need to be for what ever range I am shooting at. With target shooting you can either "Dial Up" for further ranges or you can "Holdover" to me dialing in my ranges is more accurate......Hope this helps!

Actually this one is a little better because it has the MIL/MIL setup and its only $199.99 hope you didn't order the other one yet.

+1000

The fixed 10X is great for ranging and having mil/mil makes knob turning very easy.

Just ordered one with a Burris PEPR QD mount from Graf's; I'm looking forward to putting it on my FNAR.

I was just in the middle of buying this with my uncle over. He said with out a doubt dont waste my money and get a 6x Trijicon acog. I was looking at them, and to the tune of almost 2k vs 200 I dont think its worth the difference!!!

What does anyone else think right before I hit purchase on this Nikon 3200 tatical?
