I have several scopes in this price range, The Helix is by far the best of the bunch, hands down. The glass is better than average for the price , the turrets are way above average for the price, and the reticle is the perfect thickness.
Element Helix FFP 30mm 6-24x50 APR-2D-MRADElement Optics
The Element Optics Helix 6-24x50 FFP MRAD scope gives you the options you need at a surprisingly affordable price considering what you get. Built for fast shooting in intense situations, it gives you the cutting edge technology you expect from Element, including durable turrets, fully multicoated glass for a clear sight picture, and a reticle packed with useful features.
The APR MRAD reticle was designed for all purpose shooting by Matt Dubber, and it gives you plenty of features intended for distance shooting and fast focusing. It's an FFP reticle (first focal plane), so you get accurate readings at any magnification, and it has 1/10, .2, .5, and 1 mil dots and lines, and a Christmas tree holdover portion at the bottom to increase your long range accuracy, with plenty of markings for when you don't have time to dial an adjustment.
This scope gives you side focus without parallax from 10 yards to infinity, a removable magnification throw lever, and 3.7" to 4" of eye relief. The lenses give you a crisp picture under different weather and light conditions because they're waterproof, nitrogen purged, fogproof, and shockproof.
The turrets hold up to repeated adjustments better than competing scopes because they use stainless steel components on the inside, so they won't wear down after long use like those made with more fragile metals. You can adjust them without tools, they have a hard mechanical zero stop, are resettable, and have a windage range of 11.6 MRAD and an elevation range of 18.9 MRAD, and they adjust 6 MRAD per turn, in 0.1 MIL clicks.
If you want a scope with a sophisticated reticle designed to take your shooting to the next level.
