I will soon to have a 18 in. Rock River varmintor Quad rail free float tube.  This gun is a dule purpose rifle that will be used for long rang out to 600 yd. or so and can have a red dot or other type site for CQB drills and the such.  Mostly long rang target using 68 to 77gr. ammo for groups and 55gr. PMC for fun.  Long with 64gr. for varmints and deer. 


The problem.


I need glass.  But what kind? 


I do not want to go over board on a scope for the gun.  $400 rang is max.  I have Have heard all good things about Super Snipers.  But I love a variable scope.  Afraid 10 power too little some times and 16 or 20 to much for the occational under 100yd. criters.

No Leupold.  Burris I like and less than Leupold and same class.

I like Simmons and thinking about moving my Whitetail Classic 6.5 x 20 that is on my 7mm. to my AR.

and May try a swift but I heard light transmissions to be about 85%.

Nikon Buck Master good but not enough light with 40mm.

I like Weaver and a V24 Mil Dot maybe a way too go.


I would like a scope that I can put a BDC from and Target Turrents would be a plus and maybe Mil dots.

Gettintg a lower end scope that a BDC will work on may be a way too go tell I find what I want.


I sure wish there was a 6.5 x 20 Super sniper I would buy it in a heart beat and be done.


Please send me lots of advice I shure do need it.    THANKS

I have something you may be interested in for sale. I have a IOR 10X56mm with MP8 reticle.
It has a 30mm tube that is all steel with optical glass made in Germany by Schott Glasswerk. IOR-Valdada is a very old scope company that's history goes back for many years.

I bought the scope for a 10FLP .308 and ended up selling the rifles this week. If your, interested I will take $375.00 + a little shipping. Email me for pictures and more info.

I don't know if this is a valid solicatation, but I spend all my extra money with SWFA.
It's a sickness, this opticitics.
