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 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
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
