I am looking for a scope for an 18" 6.8 build. It will mostly be used for range plinking but occasionally for hunting hog as well. I'd imagine hunting ranges will be within 200 yards but the local range is 1000 yards so it may get stretched out to 600-800 yards there. I am thinking I'd be better off with a variable power given the distances. I also have a budget of around $400 for the scope alone. One option that has caught my eye is the Vortex Viper 2.5-10x44 BDC. I am open to opinions of the Viper and any other recommendations you guys have https://www.primaryarms.com/Vortex_Rifle_Scopes_s/929.htm. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
