I've got a Scar 17s that is my DMR/short to midrange hunting rifle. I'm trying to figure out if there is a good and inexpensive optic available. I'm thinking a 1-6 or 4-14 zoom range. The issue at hand is that the rumour mill claims that SCAR's are rather effective at murdering optics, however I have yet to find anyone who has actually found this to be the case with any quality optic. So I'm looking for firsthand ish experience here, not uncle bob heard from his friend etc. Anyway thanks in advance everyone.

Given that the reticles in both scopes are something I can work with, which one between the PA GL 4-16x50 RGrid2 and the Arken EP4 4-16x50 gets the nod? I understand the PA has a little more elevation available, and the Arken is a 34mm tube. I understand that the glass on both is surprisingly good for the price point of the scope, and the Arken has very good tracking. I would primarily be using this as a LR plinker out in the pasture out to 890 yards (farthest I can safely). Thanks for your time and input.
