    Got a good price on a DPMS panther bull LR-308. Looking for an optic. Shooting at medium range, (say 600 m max) paper, not competition. Planning to shoot inexpensive ammo.

    1. Price less than $900 or there abouts, looking for mil-dot, MRAD or BDC type reticles
    2. Looking at the Trijicon 2.5-10x 56 mm acupoint - Pros: would seem to be good low light. No batteries. Lighter weight at 20.7 oz.Can be had for under $650.
    3. Also looking at Vortex Viper PST FFp Gen II 2-10x32. Pros: Lots of nice features but subtle. Price for the Vortex is under $850 and weight is just under 27 oz.

    Now, I can easily see using the Trij and keeping it at 10x using the SFP for range estimation. That would mitigate the FFP of the Vortex, or would it ?

    Thoughts ?

    Other scopes to look at ?

    I ended up getting an Athlon Optics Midas BTR Gen2 4.5-27x50 with an MRAD reticle (which is what I'm used to)
    for $550 or so plus tax with free S&H (the subtensions are accurate at 15x which is likely where I'll leave it most of the time):
