This will be for a FNH Patrol XP in .308.

-Magnification range of about 4-16x variable power

-30mm tube

-Subdued/"Tactical" looks, no gloss finishes, silver finishes etc.

-Mil-Dot or decent ballistic drop reticle

-Side focus/parallax

-Would prefer knobs that are not too tall (won't fit in my safe), they do not need to be finger adjustable even really.

-About $600 or so

-And of course from a good manufacturer. Just say no to Barska

Please and thanks!

Nikon Monarch will just about fill all you have listed there, and IMO good glass for the money.

Anyone have or use a Bushnell Elite 6500?

I love Burris but I'm dead set on side focus.

I have a Bushnell 3-9 mildot without turrets. The quality is excellent, the clarity is very nice and the price was cheap!

Another guy I shoot with has a Bushnell too. He is also happy with it.

Not about your choice exactly, more of an overall quality assessment of the manufacturer.
