Just picked up a 6.8 SPC. Anyone have any recommendations on what power scope to get? I’m a vortex guy so I was wanting to stay in that family.

Is a tactical scope on an AR necessary?

You could just get 3-9 or 1-4, 1-6, 1-8 etc.. Don't need high magnification for a 6.8. My 6.8 AR is just wearing a 3x Prism scope right now.

Yeah you’re probably right. Looking for something for pig hunting. No more than 100 yard shots. Maybe 200 at the very most. I was thinking the Vortex Optics Viper HS 2.5-10×44. Read good things but would like some opinions if anyone has this scope

I put a Bushnell 1-6.5 BTR on my 6.8.

My 6.8 wears a Burris FF E1 3-9x40 with the illuminated reticle, and I like it. For some reason I've also been enamored with this one from Burris: https://www.burrisoptics.com/scopes/mtac-riflescopes-series/mtac-riflescope-1.5-6x42mm

Since you are in that price and power range, I would highly recommend the Trijicon 3-9. I have 3 and they are great. Not a Vortex but Trijicon makes great optics.
