define "longer range"

i had a mueller on my 700P that tracked pretty good out to 300 yards or so, cost around $150 IIRC. but any further than that and i noticed it would give me issues sometimes.

I like my Nikon P223. $200 range, and the reticle is specifically calibrated for the .223 round in 100 to 600 yard increments.

After a lot of looking for the past 2 months i settled on the Nikon p223. I still have yet to find even 1 bad review and for the price can't really be beat. I got mine with the mounts shipped for $189.
I will be doing a report after i get it mounted. Nikon also sells an app to help with the reticle adjustment.

I've had the Nikon 223 12x for a while. It's excellent tho I've only used it out to 300 yd targets.

I have a Bushnell banner 6-24x40 I caught on amazon for $99 . They usually sell for $169. Its been a fabulous scope for the money and helped me make a tack driver .223 bolt gun. Now you will have to get used to how the mil-dots work but a little practice and keeping notes the dots will come natural after a while. I do wish it had a side focus but for the money I can live with the front focus. If you have the focus set at 100 and your target is 300 it will appear out of focus until you hit around 300 on the focus etc. This does help in knowing about how far away your target is and will get u pretty close
