    I have a well built AR in 556 that needs glass. I'd like to be able to shoot out to 600 yds with that rifle and have no problems identifying my target. It is a heavy rifle so I'm not concerned about weight. I have a Vortex Razor I considered putting on but that seemed like overkill and that is now going on my 6.5 I'm building.

    The Trijicon 4-16x50 AccuPower looks nice. Really would like to have a precision scope with their fiber optic/tritium system, that be a nice setup.

    I've had an trijicon in 1-4. Green triangle on a post. Absolutely brilliantly clear glass and its built like a tank. The illumination is bada$$. Full sun or in the dark.

    The turrets have sharp positive clicks. Field of view is top notch.

    It's a bit heavy.

    What power Vortex Razor? You could always put a QD mount on it.

    It's in a QD but it's really overkill for that rifle. 4-20x56 I believe. Sure it'll work but seems a little much. It should be great on the Creedmoor though.

    Looking more at the 3-9x40 Trijicons though.

    Get more maximum then that. 3-9 is dated. A 30mm lens is incredibly bright as is. This is top level stuff that breaks rules.

    I just don't know about the 50mm objective. It really does seem a little big for 600yds. I have some 40s and a 56, I think I'll swap them on and see how they look in proportion to the rifle.

    What is your anticipated target?

    You will need that Razor if you are shooting groundhogs or other small targets.

    You can use a red dot if the target is a Buick.

    If it's just paper or steel then you just have to decide how much zoom you want.

    Your budget is also a deciding factor.

    If you are looking at a dollar a yard the Gen 1 Vortex PST/ HSTs are hard to beat. The 50mm Objective models run about that. The smaller models are a little cheaper.

    Mrad, Fixed power so you are not doing weird math, clear clean glass, built like a tank, tracks true.

    Works great at 6x just using the reticle for hold over. Also have one on my 300 blackout.

    Or if you have money grab a Trijicon.
