I'm tryng to decide what optic to put on an upcoming Noveske Recon upper purchase. I was seriously considering the Burris XTR 1-4 when the 7.62 1.5-6 XTR. I thought, wow, that would be perfect for me because my eyes aren't great. Although I'm looking at a max of 300 -400 yds, the 1.5-6 magnification would be a big help for me past 100 yds. The 1.5 would allow me to use for CQB drills if I wanted. I've read that the 7.62 reticle is actually pretty well suited for the 68/69 gr. bullets in 5.56. The 1.5-6, as compared to the 1-4 XTR is only .9" longer and two ounces heavier. Yes, it has a 40mm objective as compared to a 24mm, but it doesn't look like it'd be cumbersome. What do you think? Anyone tried this?
