    I use Bushmaster or Yankee Hill Machine Mini Risers and QRW Leupold Rings. Lots of recommendations for Larue Tactical these days. Thats a one piece mount that puts the scope farther forward so you can get right up on your rifle.

    I put a Rock River Arms scope mount on my AR-10.........Heavy but solid as a rock.

    Burris AR-PEPR (P.E.P.R.) mount, currently on sale at Midway for $70, or Warne extra-high AR15 height rings with quick detach, $50 or so at Midway and elsewhere.

    Most deer hunters don't shoot over 400m, and most actual shots are less than 200m. A good quality red dot will do. The 3x9 variable is overkill.

    Even at three power, if you don't practice at finding the target under 150 yards, you can miss it. The narrow field of view sometimes gives you a sight picture of nothing but fur. A red dot won't - and works better under a lot of conditions. Been using one since the first Aimpoint (which I still have,) and I consider them superior.

    If you consistently shoot longer ranges, then a 2x or 3x multiplier is available. In typical woodland or edge, it's often left off.

    For hunting, consider a Burris PEPR with a Falcon Menace 1.5-5x30.. nice glass for $200 and a nice low magnification range. Also has an illuminated reticle. That's what I have on my AR-10. (The Magpul PRS is heavy for hauling around though, so I'd stick with a lightweight stock on a pure hunting rig)
