Is there another scope with similar or the same features around that $350 price?

I held one today and its pretty slick. Looking for something for a .223 .

I'm not into twisting turrets, but I love to look at optics. I found this not too long ago:

I'm not sure that "regular price" isn't full-blown MSRP, but half off MSRP isn't a bad deal price-wise. I'm not at all sure about the quality of Weaver optics, either, since the last one I owned was made in El Paso and had a steel tube. You'd think a scope with a $663.99 MSRP would be pretty decent, though.

I have one of the Burris 1-4 scopes with the bdc type reticle. It's a great scope for a 223. I have run mine out to 800 yards. Once you know your holds (which will not line up on the reticle exactly), I can easily engage targets to 500 yards with ease. You will like it.

Seems like the trendiest scope of this variety and price range is the Vortex Strike Eagle. I have no idea how this compares to the Burris in terms of clarity and what not but it certainly pffers more features, namely more zoom.

My favorite scope for an AR. I haven't been impressed with Vortex.

I have one and a pst viper 1-4. The mtac is a better value. I can be more precise with the vortex, but not worth the additional $150-200

I've had the MTAC and currently have the Vortex 1-6 Strike Eagle and PST 1-4. The MTAC is a great scope with my only gripe being the reticle as the dots are too large for my taste. I much prefer the Vortex, Bushnell and SWFA reticles but you can't go wrong with the MTAC if the reticle suits you.

Every scope mentioned in this post is nice! I settled for the Vortex viper due to reticle and clear glass with a true 1x. You cant go wrong with any of the scopes mentioned in this post. Flip a coin and get what you can afford.

Got the MTac here. Bought as a scope to hold me over until the Strike Eagle came out, but after using it and learning how fast it is to get in target, I won't be switching it out. Love it on my 223. Like Chad said, the holds aren't perfect, but if I sling 62gr ammo it's close enough to hit 3/4 human targets at 100 200 300 400 yards.

Thanks for the replies. Managed to win an auction paying $289 for it. Thought that was good.

Good choice and great price. Slap it in a Burris PEPR mount and rock on
