Hey there. I'm new to the AR world but I'm waiting to get my 20'' A2 rifle kit soon and plan to make it a good long range gun. I've been researching trying to find what scope I should get but don't know how far I should expect my rifle to reach. I've heard around 900 yards but don't know how true that is. Anyone got some good advice to throw my way?

I'd say 600 yds should be your goal for 5.56mm.
