New to this board.  Great wealth of information here.


I have ordered a DPMS .308LR w/ 18" barrel.  This rifle has a great reputation for accuracy.  I am a full time LEO and I want this weapon set up as a tactical/counter sniper weapon.  I am pretty well set up with everything except the scope.


Being a personally owned weapon I need to keep the glass at a reasonable price,  $400.00 or less is much prefered.  The weapon will be used for target shooting out to 600 yrds., LEO sniper training, and possibly deer hunting.  The rifle will also be used for 3-gun competition but I will be using iron sights in the He-Man catagory.  I will need a set up that will maintain zero when the scope is removed and then put back on.


I am primarily a handgun hunter with my stands being in the deep woods.  I do have a nice stand that overlooks an open field allowing shots from 150 - 500 yrds.  This rifle would be used in that stand if I use if for hunting.


I really like the reputation, looks, price of the SS 10x42 and this is my number one choice at this time.  My question is this.  Is there something else I should be looking at in the price range mentioned.  I want Mil-dot reticle, target/tactical knobs.  I do not need side focus (like the SS 10x42M has).


Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

I have the 24" DPMS LR-308.  I originally had it set up as more of a varmint rig with a 6-24x Bushnell 4200 Elite.  I now have a 10x42 SS on it.


Are they finally shipping them with the steel magazines?


Sounds like you have your different uses planned for it.  I found it to heavy of a turd for anything other than bench shooting.  Off-hand shooting would be very difficult.  I wish i would have opted for the one with the lighter barrel profile.


For <$400, I think the SS is your best choice.  Your hunting application does'nt sound like using a fixed 10x will be a huge crutch.
