    I'd have to say the Nikon Buckmasters with side focus and target turrets would probably fit the bill.

    +1 on the Buckmaster, dang fine glass for the price.

    Check out the Bushnell Elite 3200 #325145T

    5-15x40mm
    mildot
    target turrets
    4.3" eye relief (wow!)
    1/4MOA clicks
    50 MOA adjustment.

    Right at the $300 mark. I just bought one for $282.

    We sell both the buckmaster and the elite, both of them dang good scopes and a steal on the prices!! i sell alot more of the Nikon so i have more experince with them. With either scope you will not make a bad choice but i would point ya towards the nikon, great glass for the money

    Exactly what I put on my Rem700P .308 and love it.

    Took a moose in the last minutes of sunlight and didn't have any problem seeing it.
