2-6x28 or 3-9x26? I spend most of my time shooting around 100m. I would like to shoot out to around 500m one of these days if it is possible with this optic. Ullie, feel free to chime in (please).

...PFC FNG...what type of shooting...benchrest/range only or ? ...what is the primany use of the weapon...will it be used for defensive purposes...will the scope be dedicated to the weapon...presumably a 556?...what kind of accuracy do you expect/desire...and at what ranges...

...price range ???

I will be doing all kinds of shooting but want the optic primarily for hunting, and price isn't an issue because I am trading an extra red dot I have lying around, I just have to choose which one. This optic will be dedicated to the 556. I would like to be able to hit within 6in at 500yds provided the ammo is up to the task. If it is needed for defensive work, I would be using the backup sights. Hopefully that will not be necessary.

...PFC...everything in a scope is a tradeoff...to gain in one area you must give up something in another...

...if i were to mount a dedicated scope on a 556..."for all around use"...i would be looking really hard at the Leupold 1.5 X 5 X 20 Mark 4 MR/T M2 with the special purpose illuminated reticle...mounted in a larue tactical SPR QD mount...

...for long range precision shooting you need good glass and magnification...something in the 4.5 X 14 range in a variable...and a reticle that let's you see the target...not cover it...

...this may seem a little optamistic...to some...to be able to shoot ~1 moa out to about 500 yards with a 556...but i believe that it can be done with the proper ammo, a good scope, the right shooter and a dash of luck...
