Just wanted to thank everyone for all the help on this sight, every scope was purchased from the advice I received on this site and many from SWFA, special thanks to Koshkin, Rifledude and Tahque. I have been very pleased with them all. I always promised to post photo’s but never did so here they are a partial list.

Left to right.

Marlin 22 mag Minox, Browning 325wsm Zeiss Diavari FL Illuminated 2.5x10x50, Browning 243 Trijicon 3x9x40, Kimber Montana 270wsm Zeiss conquest 3.5x10x44, Kimber 308 Leica 4.5x14x42, M & P AK 223 Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x50.

Looks like a nice rifle collection, and some great scope. 

Just a suggestion, as it seems a lot of people do this with ARs.  Move your mount forward a bit.  If you look at your AR compared to your other rifles, look how much farther back the scope is.  It will be a lot easier to get into and more comfortable if you move it forward a bit. 

Optically the edge of the eye piece closest to you, should be right over the charging handle.  That would put it right inline with your other scopes.

Stephanie,

I am not comfortable with mil dots or hashes, I have Astigmatism and am left eye dominate and shoot right handed. All my scopes are #4 or German 1 or plain cross hairs. I have tried them. I shoot a lot just for practice. I am a hunter.

I use this one, it's much more comfortable for me.
