Greetings, first post.
I am new to .308 (been on the .223 platform for a while) and am looking for a scope that will serve me well from 100 to an optimistic 1000 yards.
My rifle is a DPMS R.E.P.R. with an 18" barrel: http://dpmsinc.com/NATO-REPR_ep_94-1.html. Note: the description says 20" barrel but I believe it's actually an 18" barrel.
I've been learning about scopes and I'm leaning towards a MIL/MIL variable Front Focal Plane scope. At this point I'm thinking about the Vortex Viper PST: http://swfa.com/Vortex-4-16x50-Viper-PST-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P44561.aspx
I'm interested in feedback related to the value of this scope and its magnification for its price point, all based on the rifle I'm going to be putting it on. My goal is target shooting anywhere from 100 to 1000 yards (I'm hoping to get good enough to hit 1000 at some point--realistically I am expecting to be able to group in the 300-400 yard range now). The rifle was $2100, the scope looks to be $1080 with a QD mount. I am not ready to spend $2100 on a scope to keep it 1:1 at this point...
Thanks everyone for your feedback!
