First focal plane scope advice needed

I need to get a new scope for my remington 700 30-06. Have been thinking of trying a first focal plane scope. Would like to stay under $500 if possible. Any advice on brands and reticle style would be appreciated. I want this gun to be versatile for close in or long range shots on a variety of game. Thanks.

I think you need to either adjust your budget, or adjust your needs. Quality ffp scopes do not sell for 500 even used

Hay there is a Horus vision raptor in the for sale section right now for 500$ It fits the bill and its 50% off retail. I need you to buy it so I don't have to look at it anymore cause I ant got no cash to buy it.

I've had a FFP Falcon for several years. It was on a 7mm Mag for several hundred rounds, a .308 AR for several hundred rounds, and is now on my son's .308 bolt gun. I have dialed the turrets up and down hundreds of times with no issues. So far I've got my $400 worth out of it.

Primary Arms, Falcon Menace, and MidwayUSA special BSA 4-14 FFP are your only choices that I know of.
