Nikon ProStaff is a great 3x9x40 scope for about $170. Clear optics, 1/4 MOA distinct clicks, and quite durable. Their Buckmark is about $250 plus, and is even better.
I have a ProStaff with the BDC reticle on a .25-06 that I can clearly see the bullet holes in a target, out beyond 200 yards. I use Leupold rings.
