Re: Which SPR scope for yotes and SHTF?

Several years back I deployed with a Leupold MR/T 2.5-8x36 mounted on an M14, good matchup of optic power and range. Even though I have never used the Vortex version in this range, I would be willing to give it a shot.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

I have never owned a Nightforce, and don't know if it is worth over double the cost of the Vortex. Plus, I have the 6-24x50 ffp mrad on my 300 win mag and I really like it.
I like this option but I guess I would like a larger objective lens like a 44mm like on the other 2.5-10 model. Its still a tossup now between the sfp 4-16 pst and the ffp 2.5-10. Thanks for the responses so far.

Any other options you guys might have?

Look into Trijicon Accupoint. No batteries, great glass, point and click dot . I have the 1-4 on an AR. Next step up is 2-10 which could be a great fit for you. Good luck
