Hey everyone! I've been researching for a while now, trying to find the best scope for the AR-10. After about two hours of browsing through the web, I'm leaning towards the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50mm BDC. 

What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

That sorta depends on what your intended use for this AR-10 is and how much money you are looking to spend.

Thank you for mentioning that, Ilya. I definitely did forget to include the use of the rifle. 

I plan on using it for big game hunting. I came across this blog that reviews the best scopes for ar-10 rifles and it recommended the Leupold VX-2 4-12x40mm Compact Riflescope. 

What are your thoughts, Ilya?

Like Iila said,It depends on your budget.If money is not an issue the TT 315M is as good as it gets.Vortev AMG is also another option if you got the cash.If your low on funds and want good dependable glass get the swfa ss 6X mil-quad or 10X mil-quad.

I am not a big fan of the VX-2.  With Leupold, the good stuff starts with VX-R, skips VX-3i and jumps  on to VX-5 and above.


Assuming you are shopping in the $400-$500 range and since your plan is to use it for hunting, your best bet is something in the 2-10x or 3-15x or similar range.

I have seen really good deals on Vortex Razor HD LH recently.  If you can snag one of those in the $500 range you should:
