Are you getting ready for hunting season – you are then you need a top Riflescope to help you out in the field. You can look at different optics available, but Nikon has proven if you own a .308 or larger caliber it does not have to be expensive.

The Nikon P-308 Made for the .308 Win
The Nikon P-308 is specifically set-up for the .308 WIN 168-grain HBT Match bullets at 2,680 fps with the BDC-800 reticle. It also features an uncovered, “Zero-Reset” spring loaded turret. With the turret, you can set it easily back to zero and it is shockproof, waterproof, and fog proof, although there is no mention of it being nitrogen-purged.
The lens is fully multicoated for a clear view and as mentioned features the famous BDC800 reticle. The Zero-Reset turret has an easy-grip course knurling that helps with infield adjustments. So setting it back to zero is quick after you have sighted it in.
They have optimized it so you can use it with the Spot On™ Ballistic Match Technology and helps with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle. This is a free online app available at NikonSportsOptics. Moreover, as with many of their other products, it’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
