The SWFA 10X is outstanding and the 10X HD is on par with $2500 glass,SWFA is a great deal. i rocked a 10x on my 700P for several years. it was a great scope for $300 as i was not making much money at the time. fast forward a few years and few more pay raises and i was able to trade it in for $150 toward a 3-15x when they were having a bundle sale. so the 3-15x came with a sun shade, scope covers and maybe a mil-dot master booklet and only cost me around $200 after the trade-in credit.
i'm a big fan of the 1-6 or 1-8's on AR platforms. it's like having a red dot and a scope. i'm not shooting 1000 yards with a 16" .308 gas gun but it would be more than enough magnification to get out to 600-700 yards for plinking as long as you buy a decent scope.
