Hey guys new to the forums! Just got a dpms oracle as I'm a college kid and don't wanna break the bank but was wondering if a vortex crossfire 24 power would hold up on the 223/556? Looking just to coyote hunt and try to make some mmooneeyy!! Wanna be able to see out there a ways and maybe pull of some 300 yard shots! Thanks guys!!!

Would it hold up? Probably but why on earth would you need that big an optic for shooting out to 300 yards?

You'd be better suited with a 2x7 or 3x9. That scope would be shaky as all get out in the field unless you were set up just right. And good luck keeping a running yote in the recticle with it maxed. Keep it light you dont need that much magnification!

I run a vortex pst 2.5-10 and its usually on about 6-7 power when yote hunting.

Just got done building an AR. Basically It looks just like an Anderson Optic-ready/ DPMS Oracle > Got a nice Swift 4x32 668M (ebay) and will be mounting it on this rifle. Just need to find a nice pair of scope rings/mount.
