The ELCAN scopes are built like tanks.  Made in Canada and used by Canadian forces.  Brighter and more durable than an ACOG, plus more magnification.

The tritium reticle lights up at night with no batteries.  The mount allows you to adjust for bullet drop at different yardages by turning the dial.

Would not be my first pick on a bolt gun.  They were designed and built for a very specific application (fast target acquisition in any light on multiple moving targets at mid to long ranges).  Would make a good hog huntin' scope.
