As much as I like FFP, I'll take better glass over features. 20MOA bases will solve the adjustment issue. If low light performance isn't important, Viper PST is a decent choice, otherwise I would not recommend it. 6-24x50, even if better than 4-16x50, isn't going to be that much better.
In that price range you will need to make compromises, there's no way around it.
