I have two S.P.O.T. Red Dot sights (1x) and simply love them. Now I'm looking for something magnified but only have $250 to spend.
Please advise on how much magnification (2x, 3x, 4x, ?) I can get or need for an M4 shooting at 200-300 yards or less; also how about clarity, sharpness, and of course, brands and places to go look.
I've never had a magnified scope before and most I've looked through in stores look distorted and move a lot.
Is $250 going to get me something respectable? If not, how much more do I have to spend?
All depends on your shooting style...and what you'll be shooting @.
I stuck a 3-9x32 simmons on mine, using it for varmints, mostly offhand.
Alot of people like the supersniper 10x scopes...I think those would be around your price range, and I heard they are excellant scopes.
