Praire Dog hunting

Now the happy owner of a RRA M-16 with the built in handle on the receiver. I want to shoot praire dogs with this rifle using manufactured rounds in the .223 or 5.56 range around 3-500yrd range.

What would be the best scope for a guy after having lens implants?

You are a man with a challenge ahead of him. First your RRA depending on barrel length and twist is probably a 2 min gun at best with factory ammo.
So at 500 yds that's a 10 inch group when fired out of a rest with no wind trying to hit a 10-12 inch target at that range is challenge and that's if you can get the booger to stand still. First you need to get some handloads developed for your rifles, barrel length/twist combo that will give you consistent performance. Second you are going to find the scope mounting on top of the built in handle a strain on your neck especially when trying to shoot such a small target from such a distance. You may want to look at cheek pads to get a good stock weld and eye relief on your scope. You will need a standard crosshair scope with a very fine reticle. To wide a reticle and you will not see the target past 200M Red dots and Holographic sights will be to large for your needs. Many fine manufacturers make standard scopes with narrow crosshairs in many different price points shop around
