Recomendations for a Scope for M1A

I am looking for recommendations for a scope for an M1A, I already have a midrange stock; went with the Arch Angel. I am looking for ranges out to 500m. Any Help would be great. Also if you have a recommendation for a bi-pod that would be helpful. Looking to keep the price below 750...if possible.

The Leupold is a good recommendation.

I went with a Night Force 2.5x-10, Night Force Light Weight rings and a ARMS #18 SWAN mount. It seems well matched to the gun.

In the price range you've specified I would take a look at the Vortex Viper PST 2.5x-10 .

You'll want a good quality scope as the M1A beats them up pretty good. Another option would be the SWFA Super Sniper 3-9x FFP.

Harris makes a great bi pod... Atlas Bi pods are awsome
