At close range, it’s important to be able to shoot with both eyes open. Look up “Bindon aiming concept”. I’ve used a couple ACOGs, 3 ˝ and 4X. At 25 yards and out, they’re great. At room clearing distances, I found them less than optimal. I would prefer a RDS or low power variable that can be cranked down to 2X or below.
