We received a Swift SRP678M scope to mount to our Remington 700 Varmint Synthetic 22-250 to replace a scope that has failed to perform acceptably. We haven't as of yet decided If we are keeping the old Leupold dovetail mounts or are moving to a 1 piece base for a more tactical approach.

The Nikon M-223 2-8x32 rifle scope was put through a vigorous test by a Field & Stream panel of judges and awarded "Best of the Best" for 2010. The staff of testers agreed the M-223 is innovative and the absolute best in optics.

Recognizing the popularity of AR rifles, Nikon has developed a new line of rifle scopes built to deliver extreme speed, accuracy and shooting confidence. The M-223 line offers five new rifles scopes, all engineered for the .223 Rem./5.56mm NATO round with 55-grain polymer tipped bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3240fps.
