I keep reading how everyone loves the scopes that are 3-9, 4-12, 6.5-20, you get the point. I just bought a scope the other day that is a fixed 10 (going on a Fal by the way), and find it much nicer than variable's. What is everyone's preference and why? For me, I don't want to have to worry about adjusting the damn things every five minutes. Same reason I ditched the CompM for the Reflex.

I prefer a scope matched to the effective range of the rifle. I can't ever see myself taking a shot much longer than 200 yards with .223, so maybe a fixed 4X or 6X would do the trick. My 24" bull barrel AR came with a 4.5 X 14 Leupold, but I really think it's too much scope for that gun. I am going to put it on my new hbar .308 Ruger, and buy a 6X or 8X for the bull barrel. I'll be putting a 4X on my 16" Hbar AR.

On my 16" Bushy I have a 1.5-4.5 Bushnell cheapy. I leave it on 1.5x for fast aquisition at home, and turn it op to 4.5 when I'm at the range for groups.

I like a variable.Ecspacially anything over 10x.If mirage becomes a problem you can dial it back.
