AR-15 Scope and rings

Recommended Posts

Hey looking for some advice on setting up my AR-15...(Rock River Predator Pursuit) Looking for a scope for predator/p-dog hunting and wondering if a 3-9x would cover it or should I go for more scope. Also was wondering what everyone is using for ring height. I have a friend with a AR and a nikkon model..? scope and the eye relief is terrible. I am new to AR's but as popular as they are I can't believe this is normal. I want mine set up right.

Thanks

I need to get new rings, I went with high and I need extra high. Burris tactical extreme extra rings is what I am going with next. I have the 3-9x40 burris fullfield 2 scope, will upgrade to the 4-12 pretty soon.....there are other one piece mounts out there as well. if you are going with rings, you will need extra high.

I would reccomend at least a 4.5-14x scope. I have a loupold mark 4 with the mil-dot reticle on my AR-15, and i was happy with it shooting prairie dogs.

I was also shooting another rifle with a 3-9x scope. the 3-9x wasn't as nice for ranges out past 250 yards. It also had a thicker crosshair though. If you go with the 3-9x, you might look for a finer crosshair...

If you are near a Cabela's you might shop in the bargain cave for a good scope, that's where i found mine. i saved a ton of money...

good luck

I'm going to assume the Predator Pursuit is a flat-top reciever,I run an Armalite 1" mount on mine and it has plenty of adjustment to move the scope forward and back to adjust for eye relief and has plenty of clearance for a 50mm objective scope (mine is a Leupold 4x12x50 Vari-X 2} They look a bunch better than the high rise mounts also. However,I am looking for a 1/4" riser to dial it in perfectly since when wearing a heavy winter face mask the scope is just a tad low and have only been able to find 1/2" so far. I have a padded Acer stock on mine which may make a bit of difference and everyone plants their face differently on a gun.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
