    recommend compact scope for 7.5" 300 ACC

    With eye Astigmatism my red/green dots just are a no-go. Read somewhere that green DOT for people with red DOT astigmatism, works in many cases, not mine. Still see spider webs and or multiple dots.

    Had cataract surgery about 7-8 years ago, that worked until just recently, the golden years aren't the golden years.

    The curtain is closing, therefore I don't need an expensive scope for cutting paper. So I am looking for a compact scope for my 7.5" 300 ACC Blackout upper, maybe something in 4 power.


    Any words of wisdom?

    We just changed out a RD for a 1-6X P. A. on my buds shorty pistol.
    Not sure if it’s “compact” enough, but price is good and it has held up well.

    That is longer than what I am looking for.

    Thanks

    It’s a short 300 bo so I would try and keep the magnification lower. Have you tried a 1.5x acog? Also a red dot magnifier combo with diopter will clear up your dot for more precise applications.

    platoonDaddy, I have the same condition and sold my Aimpoint PRO due blooming clusters. I went with the Vortex Spitfire 3x Prism Scope on my 6920. I'm fine with 3x out to 200 yds. I have a choice of either green or red illuminated BDC reticle or turn it off and have a traditional non illuminated scope. There are times when the background color and lighting seems to favor green and sometimes it favors red or plain black. Can't explain why but it works for me. Having the adjustable diopter was the main reason for my purchase. With the sharper image and reticle I'm shooting much tighter groups from 200 yds on in. The $350 "street price" made it affordable and I'm sure "Black Friday" and Holiday sale prices will bring it down even more. Some may complain about the weight but at less than a pound it's just fine with me. I ain't humping it around all day long!

    I agree with Furbyballer. The 1.5 ACOG would be one of my top choices. A 1-6 or 4x is a lot of magnification unless your only shooting supers. A 1.5x ACOG is compact, lightweight and you have some reticle options. I think the 1.5x16 is under 5 oz and the 1.5-24 has quite a few reticle options. Other than that Iíve read and heard that most prism type optics work well with astigmatism folks. I suppose you could go with a lightweight 1-4, but that doesnít gain you anything but weight and length you donít need with a 7.5Ē 300bo shorty

    If you dont want to spend a ton of money look into Primary Arms Cyclops or Vortex Spitfire for 1x. They are prism scopes and astigmatism wont matter

    If you want a little magnification PA has a 2.5x they run on sale under $200 frequently. Burris and vortex have prism scopes as well

    I agree with the above posters on the Trijicon Acog 1.5 as a very good option

    An ACOG or Prism scope is about as compact as you will find.
