Viper Vortex HS 2.5-10x44 BDC on an AR-15

I'm looking to mount one of these on my RRA ATH Carbine. I was just wondering if anyone has done this before and how it worked out for them?

    Bobro, Larue, or American defence machine all make a mount that will work for your rifle. I would suggest the Bobro extended SPR mount I have used all the others but Bobro is the best there is, zero shift after removal and instalation.

    Thanks, but I have a Burris P.E.P.R mount already. I'm going to mount a small red dot on top later on.

    I have a Viper 6.5-20X44 PA BDC on my RRA Varminter, do not have a bunch of time behind it but it is a great scope (although too much for a .223, but the price was right)

    So why did you ask the question?

    I think if you re-read the OP you will see he is asking about the scope/rifle combo. He never asked for mount advice.

    I have the Vortex Diamondabck 4-12x44 with BDC reticle. Absolutely love it....

    The reticle matches my 75 gr BTHP handloads at 2700 fps from my 16" RRA to 500 yds perfectly. I think the reticle may have been changed now, but mine is as follows.

    + = Zero
    dot 1 = 1.5 MOA
    dot 2 = 4.5 MOA
    dot 3 = 7.5 MOOA
    dot 4 = 11 MOA

    The turrets dial spot on as well to get me to 750, and the box test I did when I first got it was spot on. In all honesty though, I do not dial my turrets often on that scope, so I cannot speak to the hardiness of the mechanical parts. It mostly doesn't go past 500.

    IMO, You cannot go wrong spending money on Vortex Optics. I have a bolt gun at the smith now, and when it gets home she will get a Vortex of some flavor.
