Been looking around and researching some scopes.  I am a newb so I need all the help I can get.

Looking at Trijicon 3-9x40 Accu-Point and Nikon 3-9x40 Buckmaster or
Nikon 2.5-10x42 Monarch.

Will be used on a S&W/Sun Devil AR15 for shooting paper targets at 100 - 500 yards.  Possibly used at longer ranges plinking.

Price range $600 range.

Thanks!

Out of those scopes I would go with the Trijicon for sure I love those Accupoints great reticles very fast. Just my .02 If you are shooting close range you may consider something other than a 3-9 scope though. Eotech's, Aimpoint, or just a lower power scope. It all just depends on what you will be using it for.

I second the Trijicon.  I just put a 3x9x40 on my RRA Predator Pursuit.  Nice glass.  Should do nicely for you are looking for.

Cyborg do you think the Burris has enough magnification for 500 yards?

Most of my shooting will be at 100-300 but the rifle is supposed to be a tackdriver  and I want to be able to maximize the use.

Thanks!

Well, The best that I can answer that question is this way. How well can you see at 125 yards? I ask this because if you are a good shot with iron sights at that range then using a 4x scope out to 500 should yield very good results. Remeber that there are any number of snipers that shoot out to 1000 yards with only a 10X. The reticle is tensioned for your caliber which is a nice thing to minimize the knob twisting. Very good glass also will help quite a bit.
