i am the very proud new owner of a SCAR 17s. Just can't believe what a sweet shooting .308 it is. I popped off 2 boxes of 20 rounds and hardly felt it. Try that with a bolt .308!
Anyway- it's optics time! I was just at the West Palm gun show and saw the Leopold VX•R Patrol 1.25-4x20mm (30mm) for the first time.
I was impressed. Loved the Firedot reticle.
My needs are simple- I want something that i can shoot hogs in Florida with, punch paper at the 100 yard range, some plinking out in the swamps, and if I need to, have a real battle rifle for home protection.
Given those specs, it seems a 1-4 or 1-6 would be ideal. So, if you have a LEUPOLD scope on a SCAR 17- please post your experiences with them. Thanks.
