Im looking for a scope for my 16" target/varmit AR

I use this rifle at the range punching paper 100- 200 yards max ( the range is 200 yards max)

I dont shoot competetively, just for fun, but I want an accurate scope none the less

Im considering the Burris FFII 3x-9x, but am open to other suggestions in the $200 market, maybe im asking fot too much in this range?

At these ranges (100-200yrds) would I need or want an Adjustable Obj?

or would that only be a benifit for less than 100yards (I wont be shooting at less than 100yrds)

also what about parallax, I dont fully understand this yet but what do I need to know about Parallax when choosing a scope given the distances I will be shooting?


Thanks for taking the time to read this and offer any help

You do not need an AO scope for you use.

For that price range, the Burris is hard to beat.

i have the SS10X42 oin my RRA 18" varmint, and i love it. i have a topic in the anything goes section, i beleave its titled "my guns". it can be seen there. i love that scope, and i shoot at 500 yards with it, without a problem. and its mounted in leupold high PRW rings, and the gun sits on a harris S-BRM bipod, both from SWFA.
