Need some advice to finish my rifle...
 
I've shot the wooden rifle matches (M1, Springfield, Vintage, M1A) for the last 6 years with my dad and I am finally getting into AR world (as far as competitive shooting that is). Tried to convince my dad to do the same as well but he isn't going for it....

I picked up a CMP RRA 20 inch complete upper at the matches last year, put a NM RRA trigger in an AERO lower, and have a UBR Gen 2 stock. The last piece is the optic. What are the recommendations? here is what I've seen....

White Oak Scope $900

March Optics 1-4.5 MTR-D3 Reticle $2k

LEUPOLD FX-4.5HD HPR-1 SERVICE RIFLE SCOPE $1.5k

NIGHTFORCE COMPETITION™ SR 1/2 FIXED 4.5X24 $2k

No idea at what level or venue you expect to shoot..... when scopes first became legal, I watched a military team member win an EIC at the Oklahoma CMP Games using an old Weaver K scope. I suggest broadening your list of possible optics and assessing your needs. Keeping in mind that while more is generally better; once you have 4x magnification and more or less reliable adjustments, more won't help you much unless you are winning matches. Good Shooting. ...

We are doing very good with the WOA with their lens reducer mounted in a PRI mount. Having the mount low enough and the lens reducer helps with consistent head position. It won’t be holding you back. The only complaint is the dot is too small for many shooters. I use the dot for standing and the ring for 600.

If I had the money, it would be a Night Force in the Geisselle mount. It is a small scope compared to the WOA. I have three times the cost of equipment and ammo with my kids and myself.

I legged out and won countless stuff, even at a National level using a custom Leupold VXR and a Leupold WOA FXII. In the end neither was truly robust in tracking and zeroes always drifted a bit and adjustments weren’t always precise. In 2018 I went to NF with the SR2 and haven’t had those issues since. I don’t exactly love the reticle but I have gotten used to it. The FXII w/ .88 moa dot was by far my favorite.

Appreciate the comments. I plan on shooting in the President's 100 and getting into some EIC matches. I know some of the top end stuff is pricey but I figure buy once, cry once....

I run the nightforce Sr2, but if I was getting into it now I would be using the white oak scope. I even bought one this summer! Might switch to it next year.

Don't knock the Vortex Viper. For the money saved, you can buy a lot of ammo or components and get to the level where you then might better appreciate the difference.

I like the small dot in the middle of the reticle for making easy, immediate Kentucky adjustments instead of clicking over sometimes.

Won't go wrong with any of the choices you mentioned

Not to add to the dilemma but why such high priced optics? For a few hundred ledd the HiLux is a more than capable option for your needs. Brass internals and the reticle works pretty good for XTC. Just my 2 cents.

The HI-Lux will not hold up to the constant use of the erector. They replaced one for me because it was everywhere on elevation changes. Other have the same issue. The new one they sent back was put on my winter practice 22 upper where it is stays set at a 50ft zero in no wind. There is also the horseshoe reticle of the Hi-Lux. If you use it like a globe sight, you will fight seeing the proper elevation.
