Hey Folks:

Looking for a cheapo, and the best bang for the buck. YES, I know all about the high quality scopes, and I am actually lucky to have a couple, but I just don't have the funds to spend $2000 right now. I would rather shoot now and save for the one I want as I go. Then I can have the one I want and a decent spare in the closet.

So, I am looking for a scope for an AR10 in .308 and I thought these two were in the current budget for now. I am hoping to get a few responses from some folks who might have some experience with these. Both have interesting aspects, but I thought I'd leave it to the experts.

Thanks for your input.

    I plan to use this scope primarily just for shooting. The rifle would be used for hunting as well, but primarily for just shooting. I had planned to spend $200 to $300.

    So am I correct in assuming these are both a straight 10x scope?? If so IMHO I see no use for a straight 10x scope. Your needs may vary. If not take a look at the Leatherwood ( Hi-Lux ) series of scopes. I've started using them a few years back and like them a lot. There are some models that fit in your price range and a few that would cost about $50 more. Nice bright scopes that get good ratings.
