    I just purchased a Kimber Advanced Tactical 308. I am trying to decide what scope to purchase. I was looking at the Leupold Mark 4 3.5 10 x 40 illuminated TMR.

    Would this be a wise choice or is there something else I should consider???

    Thanks

    I guess that would depend on the rifles inteded purpose(s). Is weight an issue? Need more info.

    I have used one of those scopes on the Army .308 semi-auto platform and it worked great.

    A couple more options would be the nightforce 2.5-10x32 with zero stop/illum and a reticle you are familiar with or a Vortex Viper 2.5-10x44, also with zerostop/illum. I have used the nightforce and like it but I have not used the vortex. Of all the scopes the vortex is the cheapest but I have heard that it doesn't give up anything in quality.

    The weight between all these scopes is small enough not to notice once you strap it on your Kimber tactical.


    Report back if you end up getting the vortex please?
