Why are MRAD scopes so hard to find?
« on: June 10, 2020, 11:17:57 PM »
Is it just me or are MRAD scopes very hard to find? All I see are MOA.

I recently picked up a Ruger American Predator in .308, and I thought it might be fun to purchase a MRAD scope and get more familiar with Mils since all my other rifles are MOA. I am not sure why the scope selection is so limited given that MRAD is widely used by LEO/Military.

I was hoping for under $300

They aren’t, for $300 you will have to get onto some forums and maybe find a used one. Maybe Snipershide or Long-range hunting. Here’s a Vortex Diamondback https://www.eurooptic.com/Vortex-Diamondback-Tactical-FFP-Riflescope-6-24x50-MRAD-DBK-10029.aspx#Write

Seriously look at this one, their HD glass and tracking are on par with Nightforce, Schmidt & Bender etc.  Huge selection and fantastic customer service.  Optics Planet is also a good place to look.  Go to http://www.opticstalk.com/ for reviews and research.
