Yes, here. Nikon Force XR 2.5-8x28, mounted with Medium Leupold QRW rings on an m14.ca Scout Hand Guard. I love the setup, scope seems very robust, and reticle works well. Repost of how the reticle and setup look:



Note also that Nikon provides an app that calculates matching distances for the circles, depending on the ammo.

Roland.

Thanks from im1livewire and Medved11

Already have a Nikon Prostaff 4-12 x 40 scope on my .308 AR platform rifle and have shot it on a 600 yd range. Purchased it at the BAFB BX for $209, and they are now $220. Planning on getting one for my M1A (which I also bought at the BAFB BX "Gun Store")

Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcomed!

It's called spot-on, it uses the top and bottom of the circles as reference points to distance. They aren't first focal plane scopes. That means if you change the magnification the reticle also changes which intern means the reference points are different for each magnification setting. That being said if you carried all info with you it could be very useful, slow but useful.

Just my 2 cents

Just a suggestion before mounting a scope on the forward rail.

The forward mount is clamped to the barrel.

After several frustrating trips to the range I finally figured out the forward rail was not positioned properly.

You should verify that the mount is parallel with the bore, mine wasn't.

There are six hex head screws on the clamp part and two hex head set screws top dead center that I believe are for leveling the mount.

Leupold: Made in America, lifetime warranty. I support buying American made products whenever possible. Not that the other suggestions here are not quality products but the job you save may be your own.

So far I like my Burris 2-7 variable scout scope. 7x works great off the bench to see bullet holes at 100 yds, 2x for offhand both eyes open. The Ballistic plex reticle could be useful if you know your loads trajectory for hold over out to intermediate ranges. Why put a cheap scope on an expensive rifle?

So far I am very happy With my Burris 2x7. Only problem I have had is the same problem I have always had with variables. Forgetting to turn them back down after using them from bench or prone. They have slow and difficult target acquisition at 7 compared to 2 for quick offhand use.
