Hello All!
 
I am a newb to all this. I just recently purchased my first rifle. I wanted an AR carbine platform cuz my friend has one and I loved his. So, now I am researching some glass. I will mainly be hunting with this rifle and doing some plinking/target long range shooting. After a couple weeks of reading on glass and mounting rings. I have come to this conclusion...let me know what you think!
 
I am liking the Leupold Mark AR 3x9x40 with mil-dot recticle. I am also going to contact Leupold to have them put a .308 BDC in it for 168gr ammo. As far as mounting, I am liking the Burris AR-P.E.P.R
 
What are your opinions??
 
Thank you!

Welcome to the OT tcoche!

Do you have a budget? There are alot of great scopes on sale & also very good buys on the SWFA sample list.Super Sniper in either 6x or 10x are the best bang for the buck just under $300,& will fit your bill!

When I had  mine, I put a Bushnell Elite 4200 1.25-4 in a LT-104 and it worked well.

I have tried a number of different scopes and my favorite is the Trijicon ACOG and compact ACOG scopes however depending on us I also like a 6x Super Sniper and even better the 3-9 Super Sniper.  I do prefer La Rue mounts  however the BOBRO and GG&G mounts that SWFA sells are also quite good.  I started off buying Armalite mounts similar to what the Burris ones are and I ultimately did not like them as well as the La Rue.  I had some Badger Ordnance Max 50s for a while too and think they are too heavy but definately sturdy.
