+1 I used to own a nikon buckmaster 6-18 fine plex and sold it with a rifle. It was used out to 1000 yards with the help of a 20MOA rail.
Last friday afternoon I was at the range using my 4.5-14x nikon buckmaster mil-dot and shot out to 1000 yards with it.
I can't complain about the nikon buckmasters I've had at all. $300 isn't cheap, and it isn't expensive. I also took my 4.5-14x buckmaster hunting last year and ended up getting a little "turned around" in the woods. I took some nasty spills stepping into knee and hip deep holes that couldn't be seen and the rifle & scope got slammed hard several times. Never fired a shot on that hunting trip, but when I got home I took it to the range it held it's zero after some real world abuse. It's a good solid scope and I feel like I can trust my life with it.
