Ahh... I have been straining my brain over this for days now. I don't see myself ever hunting with the FN as don't you have to have less than so many rounds capable weapon to hunt elk? If not I would definitely take it on a hunt when I finally get my Elk tags. I live in Illinois and we can't hunt anything with a rifle except coyotes. I also have a bolt 30-06 that I thought would be my hunting rifle (also needs a scope). Here is my lowdown for scope needs.
FN AR (.308) set up for long range but shorter capabilities, possibly a laser on it for that.
4200 or Monarch possibly in the 4-16 magnification for top end
Howa 30-06 bolt for hunting up to possibly 500yrd or so
6500 2.5-16x42 mildot ??? is this overkill? I would like to keep the cost down if possible but I want a mildot or BDC type reticle.
DPMS AR .223 with flip up sights, I want to use them at times and would like something for longer ranges that I can get out of the way if I want to use them. I am thinking an Eotech??? But that isn't really very accurate at any kind of distance if I were to use it for coyote hunting. We have nothing but flat 1/4-1/2 mile plowed fields here to shoot over for coyotes.
