    Scope recommended for .223 Wylde 20

    Im on the fence on a 3x12 FFP or a 3x15FFP.

    I have an opportunity to get a 3x12 at a huge price break. Just dont want to settle if it wont get the job done. Im in my 40s and my eyes arent perfect anymore

    I would be interested in knowing your scope mount options as well

    If the 3-12 is much cheaper, buy it. hard to notice that extra mag.

    I run a 4-16 FFP on my “precision” 5.56. I doubt you’ll notice much difference between the 3-12 vs 3-15- if the 12x is that much cheaper I’d buy it if the reticle suited me.

    500-600 yds tops for this rifle.

    The 6.5 Creedmoor is a whole different mess

    What brand scopes are we discussing? Is there a big quality gap, same brand?

    Also what type of shooting and distances

    I was happy with a fixed 10x out to 1000 when I started. 3-12x is plenty.

    I ended up picking up a Bushnell Elite Tactical LRTS 3-12 44mm G3 reticle. Seems like it will take care of things nicely
