    Default Best budget scope for a 223 wylde upper?

    I got a 223 wylde upper from PSA almost a year ago and I have yet to put a scope on it, what do you guys recommend as far as a scope goes in the $200 maybe $250 range.

    Thanks,

    Porter

    Nikon, or Pentax for 223's. Quality obtained cheaply!

    IMO this is the best deal for under $1000. It was made under contract in the Phillipines for BSA.

    I got a 18" rifle .223 Wylde upper and managed to find a Vortex Strike Eagle for $300. Very happy with it. Another $60 for the mount and I still consider it reasonable.

    I don't have one but I have read many positive reports on the Weaver Tactical Grand Slam 3-10x 40mm with 1/10 Mil Adjustments Mil-Dot Reticle. It's only sold by Midway and is frequently on sale for $299.




    Here's a review: http://www.snipercentral.com/weaver-...cal-3-10x40mm/

    For a scope that is around $400* (2010 USD) this is a nice option. The optics are very strong for the money and the scope is light, fairly compact, and simple to use with very nice knobs. An adjustable AO is nice to have but not necessary and I would like to see some more accessories available from Weaver such as readily available sun shades. I do feel that the scope is a very good offering in this price range and worked well in our tests and for the more budget minded shooter it is a good step up from the low end scopes especially if you are looking for MIL knobs to match the mildot reticle. This scope does find a nice niche in the market for the price range combined with variable power, MIL/MIL setup, good quality glass, all from a quality Japanese scope maker.
    *As mentioned above this scope is frequently on sale for $299.

    cabelas has a similar type, much cheaper,
    and a good scope (have one with a low round count, good so far)
