Looking for a scope for my AR. Basically will be hunting and range shooting 200yds or less. Also what height of rings do I need?

I prefer 1-4, 1-6, 1-8, 2.5-10 something smaller and more compact for an AR. Rather than rings id get a mount lower end but descent would be like the burris or SWFA and better quality would be Bobro, larue, or something like that.
If you have IG or FB go give me a follow at TexasKillingFields

I had a 1-4x in a Larue mount on an AR and sold it when I moved to Colorado as I'm usually taking longer shots. Now my AR optic used on both my 5.56 and 6.5 creed ARs is a Burris XTR II 3-15x, in a Badger Unimount. I looked at Bobro mounts but wanted something lighter since the XTR II is heavy already. The Unimount fit the bill (about half the weight of a comparable Bobro mount) and returns to zero with proper torque.

I have a VX-R 2-7 on my AR that I really like.
