I want a mil-dot or ballistic plex, an AO to focus down to at least 25 yards, 10 to 16 top power, target turrets would be nice but not a must, a scope that could handle a centerfire in the future, matte finish, preferably in a less than 50MM objective all in the low $300 or less range.  Any thoughts?  I have a list, but I want your opinions first.  This is going on a custom 10/22 and will be used for hunting and target.

Fixed power scopes are not ideal for hunting, but for target shootings 10x42 Super Sniper by SWFA is hard to beat.

With the variable scopes, it is difficult to find something decent that will fit you requirements perfectly.  Nkon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 with the MilDot gets pretty close, but I am not sure if the side-focus on it gets all the way down to 25 yards.
Sightorn S2 4-16x42 is not in your price range, but satisfies your other requirements.
Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40 with AO will probably get you there.  I have not used their Ballistic reticle yet, but I am sure it is the same things as most other holdover reticles.
Bushnel Legend 5-15x40 satisfies your requirements, but I think that is a pretty significant step down in quality over the scopes I mentioned above, as is Burris Fullfield II.
Swift Premier 4.5-14x44 with AO and Mil-Dot is probably your best bet if you must stay satisfy all of your requirements.
