Remington 700 SPS Tactical .223 (Scope?)

8415 Views 7 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  AKpredator
Just put a deposit on a Remington 700 SPS Tactical in .223 yesterday. I am having a hard time deciding on a scope for it though and seeking some advice from more experienced shooters. I am looking to spend about $500-$600 (Canadian), as that is all I have a budget for at this time. Looking for a tactical type scope with a BDU reticle. Any suggestions or advice?

Any preference to power?

I have used this scope before and it has been great quality, low light is still bright and crisp. My buddy has a few on FALs and we beat the crap out of them , but they still keep going. Only thing is they only have an affordable 4x, the rest are all well over 1000 bucks

I have heard great things about these from people I trust but have not used one myself

I have the fixed 10x from SWFA,...

They make very good, affordable, scopes. The 'Super Sniper' (SS models) were created for a military contract and are built very stout.

The 10x fixed ( has not found a permanent home on any of my guns however it is working well on a variety of platforms. Very bright, mil dot reticle and stout.

Im going to have to say I think you will be more than happy with the Super Sniper line. They are good quality that wont break the bank. I cant justify buying a scope that costs twice what the rifle cost... unless its a .50 cal :)

A friend and I bought a couple of Minox scopes just to test them and have been shocked by the quality. I own Zeiss and Swarovskis that cost twice or three times as much, and I put the Minox in the same quality class. Last time I checked, Doug at Cameraland has these in stock.

Here is a couple photos of mine on a gun.

Buy a SWFA like has been discussed above.

Take the leftover $$ and get yourself a new stock ... like a B&C or H-S Precision.

You will thank me later.

If you choose to live with the Hogue stock ... again, which I definitely do not recommend ... for that budget, I would go with a Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x40mm with Mil-Dot reticle. Should set you back around $390 - $400.

Happy shooting!
I would try to get the Trijicon Accupoint 3x9 with mil-dot reticle. It's just a few dollars more but you have dual illumination, no batteries and the toughest optic available.
