AR scope under 1K

I am repurposing one of my AR platforms and need a scope for 200 yard steel and coyote busting.


Any recommendations?

+1 on the Strike Eagle. I bought my 1-6 from MidwayUSA for $300 and got a free cantilever mount with my purchase. Can’t beat that

Leupold had some good scopes for around 300.

Burris RT6 is a great choice for an AR. Great glass, really nice 1x eyebox.

I bet it is...even my RT3 prism I'm pretty sure I'd have no problem hitting a target at 200 yds--maybe not print tiny groups but still hit them. I love them things on AR's.
