Of course, any capable optic can bridge the two disciplines. But some riflescopes--such as Nikon's new M-308, with a holdover reticle tuned to .308-class ballistics--are designed to fill a specific, albeit robust, niche occupied by target shooters. Other scopes with attributes that lean toward tactical shooting include Konus' disappointing Konuspro; the 1/8-inch-click Targetmaster from newcomer NikkoStirling; the 34mm, 2-pound Triple Duty behemoth from Sightmark; and Vortex's tight, bright 1-6x Razor HD, a 30mm gem that would pair well with any AR. The most remarkable of what I'll call these entry-level tactical scopes is Redfield's $250 Battlezone. Although it's optically hideous, this 1-inch scope won our favor because it ships with not one but two ballistic turrets: one tuned to the drop profile of the 55-grain .223, and the other configured for the 168-grain .308 match load.
