Priest,
It's been less than a year. The thread is still kickin' and apropos to many.
:lol:
:cool:
I stand by my sentiment. :lol:

Personally, I have the Burris 1x6: https://www.burrisoptics.com/scopes/rt- ... e-1-6x24mm and like it a lot.

The Trijicon is very tempting though, but I would get the Open horseshoe .308 ballistic reticle. This one: https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products ... -C-1600005
I got Burris’s “budget” Tac30 1-4x24mm scope for my AR and am very happy with it and with Burris’s customer service. I used and abused it at a 10K Run n Gun biathlon last month. In the process, it got scratched and banged up while climbing obstacles and crawling through two muddy steel culverts. The lenses got mud smeared while crawling through the mud, but I was still able to hit a 500 yard gong twice during the distance stage. In the end, I managed to lose a turret cap on the course, probably while I was crawling in the mud. When I asked Burris to sell me a spare cap, they offered instead to mail me a free one. Needless to say I was impressed!

The Vortex Strike Eagle looks really nice, but that's a bit more that I wanted to spend, and I would have had to get another mount for it. The Nikon has a 1" tube, same as my current scope, so I can reuse the existing mount. Ordered the Nikon from Midway, should arrive Tuesday.
I was looking at that one as well.

Which VX-2 do you have? The 1-4x20mm? I just ordered that one for my 16” AR15 and am anxious to see how it works for me at 200 yds.
