Not Saints, but...

My main-use AR (Colt 6920) wears a Aimpoint CompM4 in a Larue mount; my 10.5” 556 pistol has a Aimpoint PRO, and my 12” 6.8 pistol has a Leupold Mk4 1-4.

Precision 556 AR wears a Strike Eagle 1-6; .308 AR has a SS 10x50 in a AD Recon mount.

On my Saint pistol I'm using a red dot from AT3. It is a great sight with a sturdy mount, clear glass and very easy to zero. My Saint Victor has a Freedom RDS. Very well made, life time warranty. I would recommend both.
I just got a Sig Tango4 1-4x24 with the 5.56/7.62 reticle for my Victor .308. The glass is great but my mount doesn't get here until Tuesday so I can't give it a solid review yet.

For the .308 rifle I recommend the Hi-Lux ART M1200 6X24

https://hi-luxoptics.com/products/hi-lux-leatherwood-art-m1200-6x-24x-riflescope


Thanks to a larger and completely re-engineered CAMputer system, the M1200 ART-XLR can now be calibrated to the majority of today’s center-fire rifles – chambered for cartridges from as small as the .223 Remington up to the hard-hitting .50 BMG. As long as the shooter knows the bullet ballistic coefficient and the muzzle velocity, this scope can be calibrated for more than 75-percent of today’s most widely used calibers and rifles to automatically keep hits in the center of mass from 300 to 1,200 meters – or within the capability of the bullet and load.

To operate this scope, all the shooter has to do is zoom in on a target of known size until it fits inside the brackets of the ranging reticle…steady the aim…and take the shot. The CAMputer system automatically compensates for bullet trajectory as the shooter frames the known size target in the reticle.

The Automatic Ranging Trajectory (ART) System was invented and designed by Jim Leatherwood for military snipers in Vietnam during the late 1960s. By using the incrementally adjustable trajectory cam, the new Leatherwood ART scopes can be calibrated for virtually any center fire cartridge from .223 to .50BMG.

LONG RANGE SIMPLIFIED
Shooting long distances requires compensating for trajectory, windage, Coriolis effect, atmospheric conditions, spin drift, among several others factors.

Using the ART scope eliminates trajectory from the equation when shooting long distance.

• The XLR reticle is a second focal plane mRad reticle.
• The center dot is 1/2 MOA.
• Every whole mil and half mil are indicated by tick marks on the axes.
• The opening at the center of the reticle can be used to frame and range a known 1/2 meter sized target.
• Additionally, there are ranging scales that can be used to frame known sized targets by adjusting the magnification.
• The XLR reticle is true at 20X.

For the .223 rifle I recommend the Hi-Lux ART M1000-PRO 2X-10X RIFLESCOPE

https://hi-luxoptics.com/products/m1000-pro


For the 50th anniversary of Jim Leatherwood’s legendary Automatic Ranging Trajectory (ART) scope, Hi-Lux introduces the redesigned ART M1000-PRO. The original Auto-Ranging Telescope (ARTel) was issued to US Army and Marine Corp servicemen over 40 years ago. Since then, Hi-Lux has refined and improved the ART system’s general cam to compensate the bullet drop of virtually any caliber.

The ART scope’s integrated mount provides external adjustment through the Trajectory cam. Selecting the proper cam setting will effectively match your rifle’s trajectory curve to the curve of the trajectory cam.

There are two ways to automatically compensate for trajectory when using the ART scope:

1) Framing known sized targets within the HR1 reticle

2) Dialing the Cam to a known distance

Once the known size target is framed, the ART scope will automatically compensate for bullet trajectory from 200 out to 1000 yards. This means no holdover or guesswork.

The M1000-PRO Trajectory cam has been designed to be modular and interchangeable. Caliber specific cams will be introduced in the future.

HR1 RETICLE
• The center of the HR1 reticle has a 2 MOA by 2 MOA cross.
• The opening in the center of the HR1 can be used to frame known size targets that are 18" or 36".
• Every hashmark on the vertical and horizontal scales indicate a whole MOA subtension.
• There are 2 MOA tick-marks that indicates multiples of 5 MOA on both the horizontal and vertical scales.
• The ends of the horizontal and vertical axes are indicated by a 4 MOA tick-mark.
• The ranging scale in the lower right quadrant can be used to frame and range known sized targets from 9"-72" in length or height.
• Available in Red or Green Illumination.
• This reticle is true at 10X.
