Default My New DPMS LR308

Just picked one up today. Was shopping for an AR15, but I came across this and it was too good of a deal to pass up. LR308B, 18" bull barrel, free float tube, came with 2 mags and a cleaning kit, all new out the door for under $800. Can't wait to shoot it this weekend, but I need optics. Gonna take my Nikon ProStaff off the -06 and mount it to the 308 while I research scopes. Anyone have any suggestions on a decent scope for coyote and deer hunting? Probably want to stay under $300 for now. Thanks for any ideas....

Nikon, Redfield, Bushnell Elite Series are all descent scopes.

Under $800 out the door? Dang! Did he have any more like that. Nice piece of hardware. Great Find! For $300, you can't go wrong with a Nikon.

No kidding,

I am looking to buy that exact rifle very soon. I can't find it anywhere near that price.

Did you order it online for that price or locally?

Im really wanting one in any configuration, kinda like the regular handguards over the free float, thats a good price!
