I think I've decided to throw down for a serious scope and get the Kahles k16i 1-6x. It seems to be the total package, and a 6x mag will allow the .308 to stretch out sufficiently far. I'm completely torn when it comes to mounts though...I'm looking for something around 7oz, qd optional. I've looked at Geissele, Larue, Bobro, ADM...for every good review it seems like there's always an accompanying bad one talking about shredded pic rails, loose qd levers, scopes 'walking' fore and aft, etc. It's maddening!

What have you guys been using, how has it been working out, and what would you recommend?

I just bought an Atibal XP 8 scope for my KM Arms
M17s 308. Really nice optic, got an Anderson mount
for it also. The height of the mount is perfect for where
I put my cheek to the upper. From what I gather this
scope was made with 3 gun shooters in mind. I like the
post that changes the power, really quick to go from
1x to 8x. Gonna take it up to the gun club on Wednesday
To sight it in and shoot some groups and steel out to 300
Yards.

I took my KM Arms M17s 308 up to the gun club today.
Had the place to myself all day, nobody else shooting,
sweet. It took about 10 shots to get the point of impact
to the center of the target. Took a few shots at the 300 yard steel, hit every time. Shot a few groups at 100 yards,
not as small as with the 6-18 x 40 Nikon that I used for load development but minute of end of beer can anyway.
The Atibal 1-8x scope seems to be a pretty good optic for the price. I might get another for my 5.56 M17s.

I wish this website was compatible with mobile phones pictures. I am a member of another
firearm forum and it doesn't rotate pictures I post there. Maybe Jon or Sgt. P could do something about it.  Please....
