    Any suggestions for a scope for a new DPMS 6.5 creedmoor I'm planing on getting? DPMS: AR-15 Rifles, Parts and Accessories.

    Use would be 50 to 600yd hunting and target. Need something that can mount low to the bore and has enough room to mount a halo sight or other close quarters optic.

    Would like to keep the price around or under $750. The counter sniper 1X8 is just the type of thing I'm looking for but that company has such a line of BS and not so good reputation. Counter Sniper Optics [Online Catalog - 1/8-30 Weapon Mountable Optical Gunsights]

    Any suggestions?

    Look at the new Weaver Tactical 4-20X50. It has a 30mm tube with a FFP Mildot and I can't imagine a better deal for the price (about $720). Glass is clear. I just picked one up for my DPMS 260 Remington.

    That Weaver looks real nice. I'm looking for something with a smaller objective lens like 32 to 38mm that will mount lower to the bore and keep a little better balance.
