Hey guys and gals. I just have a quick question for you all. I just recently purchased an AR for hunting and I am wanting to get a scope (something like a 3-9x40) for it. I had purchased a UTC scope for it, but had to send it back as it wasn't holding consistent grouping. My question is if you all could point me towards a good scope manufacturer, or even a good model. I have about a $200 (maybe $250) budget for the scope. I found two "Bushnell AR Optics Drop Zone-223 BDC Reticle Riflescope with Target Turrets and Side Parallax, 3-12x 40mm" and the "Nikon P-223 3x32 Matte BDC Carbine" but I wonder if those are good scopes for what I will be using them for. Do you guys have any personal preferences? I just have no idea at all when it comes to scopes lol. My preference would be to have a scope that I could still use my iron sights with, but that isn't a deal breaker if it can't be done.
