I am picking mine up this Thursday or Friday. I have an extra 1-4 accupoint in a Larue mount, but was thinking about something with a little more magnification.

What do you think?

Tagascribe. Picked mine up the other day, and it needs some glass. Haven't had time to do much looking into it.

I just shot my new MA-TEN today for the first time. I borrowed a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9x40 from my Bushmaster Varminter. I can tell already that I want more magnification for this rifle. I'd say at least 16x but I'd prefer a 20x.

I'm happy with my swfa ss 3-9

I am thinking of upgrading to a vortex pst 6-24. If you are thinking of getting a higher magnification, do it.

I'm working on a 308 build & have been considering what to top mine with. Have have been running a Nikon 4-12X40 & I want more magnification for range work. After reading reviews and looking at cost; I am going to go with the Mueller tactical 8.5-25X44 mildot; it gets great reviews on Midway & for $ 165 - it's a no brainer for me.

You didn't state your budget, so price must not be a factor.

I am partial to my USO, SN3 TPAL, 1.8-10 with the EREK knob....

Mounted on my LMT MWS, a great combination, not a light set up, but well balanced...IMO, you cannot get a better set up...



Since this picture was taken, I move the scope forward 4 T-Slots on the upper. Feels much better...

I have a 10X 3200 Elite on mine. It works so far at least out to 400 yards on clay pigeons.

Still haven't decided, but I know I am not putting a tasco on my 2k+ rifle!!! I may be going in around 1k - 1200 bucks.

Too bad they are so expensive, but the 6x Acog that the Brits are running is awesome. I always discounted them as an overweight/oversized pig, but after using one recently my opinion has changed.

I'm eying an MWS and it well get a 6X Acog. It is a spendy bastard.

On my MWS i run a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x40mm LR/T Mil-Dot and I love it

Works great for me

Thats my input

I use a TA11G with horseshoe reticle. But I don't have anywhere to shoot past 350 yards. For that distance this scope works just fine.

Check out the new made in America Busnell elite HDMR with the 34 mm main tube . There is a group buy on it at the Hide ,and it gets great reviews .I'm waiting for mine to come in as we speak. this scope may be a world beater at the price.

I have the IOR 2 x 12 Spartan scope on my..bulit like a russian tank, but its very very clear. I am not that experianced with Long Range shooting, This scope has 168gr Cammed turrets out to 800yds

For the .308 version I use the Accupoint 1-4x24 with the post and triangle. I can hit an 8" plate all day long at 400 yds. To me that optic is the perfect mix of accuracy and speed. Buy hey thats just my opinion. If I want a higher powered optic, I'll use a bolt gun.


Now on my MWS in .260 Rem I use a 2.5-8x32 Leupold Mk4. It fits that gun and round very well.

I've got the same scope and I'm really pleased with the clarity.

I have run a T1, 1-4x, 2.5-10x, and 3.2-17x on my MWS. I prefer my 2.5-10x24 NF over the others.

I have a Leupold MK4 4.5-14 on mine. Good for steel out to 600, if I had it to do over I think I would go Nightforce with hollow Mil dots and zero stops.

I'm a Vortex fan boy. My LMT well be getting a Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x44. This should be enough magnification for ranges past 600yds. If you want to shoot longer range then the Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 would be a good choice. I have a earlier model Vortex Viper 6.5-20X50 on my 21" NoveskaLite AR10.

The quality of today's scopes and the great prices have never been better. You have dozens to choose from.
