I am looking at scopes for an AR that will be used at typical hunting ranges (up to 250 yds say).  I have been reading quite a bit and think I have it narrowed down.  I have been looking at 2-7, 2-8, and 3-9 variables.  Scopes of interest in my price range include the Vortex Viper 2-7, Nikon Monarch 2-8, and the Bushnell Elite 4200 3-9.  I am not opposed to others, but this is the general price range.  I was interested in a 2-7 or 2-8 in order to keep the size and weight down and for the low-end magnification.  However, I live in a climate where a lot of hunting is in cool weather with a high chance of wet.  This is pushing me toward the Bushnell 4200 with Rainguard.

What do you think?

Elites raingaurd feature is great!  Don't count out the SS 3x9 as it is perfect for the AR platform

Thanks.  The SS looks outstanding, but a little more than I want to spend for this one.  The SS scopes will get a hard look for the .308 bolt gun that I want to get next Big Smile...
