Suggestions for a scope on a 458 Socom. The only catch is it needs to come from Bass Pro or Cabela's. I have a ton of points that I want to use. I had a Nikon shotgun scope on order but it's been back ordered for over a month and they have no estimations on shipping date.

Can't go wrong with a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6 or 1-8. Dis you snatching up one of the AR Stoner uppers from midway too?

Nope. Been a work in progress. Got every part on sale except the Tromix barrel. Just been getting it a piece at a time. Optics are the last thing left.

I have a Redfield Revolution 3-9X40 on my 450 Bushmaster AR. Like it a lot, but then I have several of these scopes.

I have a Vortex Strikefire on my 450 Bush( have a few of the Redfiled Revs also on other guns) and thinking about the scope that Mike D above suggested. Just not the firedot or the VX6 line. The VX Freedom series in the same magnification with the pig plex is a $200 scope now with holiday sales and it is a Leupold. Low power and magnification will fit the big bore AR's well. The Strikefire moa is too large for my liking.

Good looking scope but I don't have that many points.
