nikon 6-18-40 comes with turrets. lifetime warranty and it should be around your ballpark price. ive picked on of them up for under 300 on ebay new in package.

You should define a "long shot". With a proper zero and a mil-dot or ballistic reticle you can get to 400yds with a .223 without spinning turrets.

Spinning turrets is out dated, go MIL-DOT, go with Buck master 4 1/2 - 14 with 3 Turrets, # 1 side focus #2 & #3 Elevation and Windage. I Click and use the Mil- dot On my .223 Space Gun with 80 Grain Bullets. Mil-dot set up to 450 Yards, then I can click up to zero at 450 then Mil-dot to 900 Yards that's all Folks for the .223. With the Big Fifty's Snipers click up as many as "5" times from 500 to 2500 yards and beyond. This will not happen with any other "Outdated Reticle."

Spinning Turrets isn't out dated! You cannot be nearly as precise with MIL-DOT as you can by dialing turrets. Everyone I know that shoots competition uses turrets and no one I know uses MIL-DOT. They each have there own discipline, and every shooter has his own preference

if you are looking for inexpensive but very useable natchezss has wohali 6x24x44 with ao for 44.95 and 8x32x44 for 49.95. they are not great glass, but they are not bad either and on a 223 would work perfect. they have almost 4 inches of eye relief and are pretty clear. i own 4 of them, 2 of each.
