Rem 700 sps tactical 308...what scope?

Ok im pretty set on the 700 sps tactical in .308...Now im just wondering what scope to buy...rings and base... I would like to use this rifle to hunt possibly 300-350 (depending on how comfortable/ and good i get with it) yards on white tail sized game and a little bigger....and i would also like to take it out and be able to blow some milk jugs up at 500 yards... I am a college student so money is tight...(maybe spend $400 on a scope) and would i want mil dot or what? New to trying to shooting ranges that far...so any help would be great...Thanks Logo

Check out the Nikon Buckmasters line. they are really good scopes and should fit your budget nicely

The weaver are also really good scopes. as to which reticle, it depends on what you want to do. but regular Duplex would work for your uses, or a BDC reticle. for shooting out to 550 at targets, a 4.5-14 or 6-18 should work just fine. I'm pretty new to shooting too, and I'm going off of what I have used. I had a Buckmasters 4.5-14, and really liked it...only sold it when I was upgrading

So there is no need for mildot? Because you have elevation/windage turrets?? and there is a nice price difference
