Im looking for midrange 400-750 tactical scope that is illuminated.  Im want to hopefully want to get a NV rig in the future and Im just getting ready for that.  Im looking for a 2.5-10 or something around that power range.  If it would be FFP & mil/mil that would be just better.
This would be going on a Larue Tactical 20" ar upper reaching out to 500 yds.
I know illumination is kinda not popular on lower end scopes, if the illum ends up bein a deal breaker, Ill probably get the 3X9 SS or falcon 4X14.

I'd get the 3-9SS.

Illumination is useful but usually not necessarily - and the good illuminated scopes are more than your budget will allow.

The 3-9 would  be a nice fit for your rifle.  And LaRue does indeed make good stuff.

Well said at that price point you get one or the other either a good tactical scope - Super Sniper  3-9x42 or Super Sniper 10xHD or you get illumination Aimpoint Comp M4s.  Forget night vision its too expensive for words when it comes to the good stuff.  Actualy as far as good tactical and illumination Nightforce is the low end of the Good Better Best with a healthy argument about which one is top of the food chain Premier, S&B, U.S. Optics, Henisoldt all of which you could buy a used truck for less than the scope.
