variable power 4-12 would be good
mill dots
target turrets would be nice but not a deal breaker

I had a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14 on my .308 before I upgraded to my PST. The Buckmasters was a great scope.

Third for the Buckmaster. I have three 4.5-14 and they work. I am upgrading, but I will keep them for other rifles. Mine are mil-dot, they adjust easily and repeat. I found mine for $2-250 used. The 6-18 are only 1/8in adjustments so stay away from them. I got lucky with my long range gun and the scope give me about 30min elevation so I don't need a canted rail.
I think, therefore I am, conservative.

Kids are great, beer is good, and people are stupid.
