Rifle is a .270 Win with a 24” barrel, purpose is generally reaching farther or putting more assets on target than I’m able to with a 5.56 AR, which is about 300 yards. I’m having a bit of trouble deciding between a medium power scope like a 2-10 or 3-12, or doing something with more magnification like 4-16 or a 3-15. I do know that I want one of those Christmas tree style reticles like the Vortex EBR or the Leupold CCH. I prefer MOA over mils and want the knobs and reticle to match. Budget is anything under $1000 out the door. I recall being able to shoot just fine at 500 yards with iron sights, which only became easier after being allowed to use a 4 power ACOG. So I know that I likely wouldn’t use the upper end of the magnification range on something that went all the way to 16 or 18 power very often. Is it worth the weight penalty? What say you gentlemen and ladies?
