Optic mount for AR in 450

Looking for suggestions on an optic mount for an AR15 am finishing building in 450 Bushmaster. I'll be running a Vortex Viper PST 1-6. Not needing anything with OD mounts but not opposed either.
Was looking at mounts from Aero precision.

Thoughts suggestions...Thanks...Eric

I like your choice.

After trying one, I now have Aero mounts (their "extended" version) on all my ARs with scopes. Solid but light weight, they work great for me.

Light and budget friendly: aero.

Good qd: adm or larue

Good non qd: badger or nightforce

Baller: sphur, maybe gdi and aadmount (I haven't used the last 2)

That aero is my favorite AR mount. Most AR dudes and dudetes look for the heaviest piece of crap they can find for a scope or a mount. The Aero is a rare class act in a world of massive multi screw junk.

It is a little tricky to tighten up because the scope will rotate as you tighten the screws. It is worth the effort, many seem unable to cope. Be warned.
