I'm trying to decide between a 1-8x or 2-10x scope for my AR-15
The furthest I'll be going is 300 yards so I like the option of 1.1x magnification
 
I'm currently thinking about the Steiner GS3 Scope 2-10x42 or something like a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8x24mm 
 
Definitely looking for an illuminated reticle though

I have one scope with an illuminated reticle, and In my honest opinion it's not needed, although I recognize some situations may be different than others especially if your planning on using it for home or property defense. 

The Nikons and Vortex have some really good light gathering capabilities. 

Perhaps if you let us know what the intended purpose is for the rifle/scope combo, we can offer more opinions.

No complaints on my strike eagle 1-6 and everyone I know with a 1-8 loves them.
