A decent store will let you hold the scope and look across the store with it. A better store will even take you outside and look at something far away. I suggest you go to a big box store that has lots of different priced range for you scopes, and look through them. All scopes look good on paper, but how do they look when looked through

I do prefer scopes that have 1/4 MOA clicks though for adjusting the reticle.

Good advice, I've got a good rest where I shoot, and am just planning on swapping out my vfg for a cheap bi-pod when hunting.

I am not promoting bushnell over any other scope, but for your price range, here is a 4x12x40 on sale for 159 dollars. See if your local store has any of these to look through.

Well guys I found one. I actually bought it for $75 from a guy on craigslist. It's a Bushnell Elite 3200 3x9x40.

It's just like this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bushnell-Eli...item3cce827423

They retail new for around $275 and this one is in perfect shape with hardly any scope ring marks.

So my next problem is, how in the world do I mount it? I've got a set of rings that raise the scope maybe .75 inches up but they don't come close to clearing the gun.

What is a decent mount that will fit and work well on my AR?

These guys are a bit pricey, but they hold their zero when removed and then put back on

It's is what I have on mine, and wouldn't hesitate to get it again if I had to do it all over again

What do you mean by clearing the gun? Do you have a standard AR front A-frame type front sight post?

The scope will look right 'through' the post if that is what you are referring to.

Have a couple of Burris Fullfield's that have provided years of dependable service. On sits atop my old Ruger .243 and another on my Thompson Encore in .308. Both seem to be well designed and hold their zero even after a few hundred rounds fired. No fogging issues and they let in enough light for early dawn late dusk shots.

Good luck with your Bushnell Elite. The one I owned was okay for a short while and they started to lose zero after a few rounds of .308 from my Thompson. Outwardly it was a great scope, but I may have gotten a bad copy. A friend bought it from me knowing the issue. It seems to work well topping his AR. It just did not agree with me.

One piece ar-15 mounts are the best way to go. Laure Tactical is the best and the price reflects that, but for your budget I'd look at:

http://www.burristactical.com/arpepr.html

It is offered in two different types one of which is a quick release tool-less. The other is a bolt on version that is less expensive.
