I haven't had a chance to sight it in yet, but I recently picked up a Nikon P223. It's a 3X9 x40. The reticle in it is specifically calibrated for the 5.56 round, and has marks for 100-600 yard targets. I'll try to post pics of the reticle in a minute. Should run about $200

I have an ncstar 3x9x42 on mine and it's been spot on at 250yds. I haven't had a chance to shoot at anything further out

the scope you list will do just fine at 200yds.
