What other scope manufacturers produce a quality scope line that utilize elevation turrets graduated in yards for a particular round/bullet weight that are  functionally equivalent to the Nikon Rapid Action Turrets of the M-223 line?
 
Looking for multiple  scopes to fit:
 
.308
.270
7mm/08
6.8 SPC
.223
 
Would prefer not to resort to replacement turrets if a standard scope line is available.
Bullet weight and velocity can be chosen in each caliber to fit the optic trajectory.
 
Right now I am only aware of the Nikon M-308 and M-223 line. Is there a better option?
 
Thanks.

It would be cheaper to get Kenton knobs for your existing scopes. Just Crony your loads. Of course any knob will only work for one bullet, load, altitude, Temperature. OK maybe it's not that easy. The Burris Eliminator may be a better option.

Thanks for the suggestions... but the Nitrex TR1 and TR2 scopes I have been using do not have an elevation knob supported by Kenton. I have a SS 10x42M  but  I am trying to avoid adding an additional $100 for an elevation knob if a quality scope manufacturer offers such knobs as a portion of their standard product. I have been waiting to order the new SS 12x42 but it appears delivery will not occur till summer.
 
I just ordered a Nikon M223 with Rapid Action Turrets for $270 delivered. In my mind that was a better option than adding a $100 turret to a $170 scope.
 
It appears the Nikon M-308 is not yet readily available so I was looking for some alternatives.
 
I am well aware of the desire to  match one turret to one load at one temp and elevation for maximum precision. However I hunt only on our 300 acre farm and shoot no further than  600 yds on steel on our shooting range.
 
For my needs, where the elevation is constant and temp is not critical compared to wind...I can tailor the magnification or zero distance to compensate for minor changes in bullet weight, BC or velocity and still remain well within the dimensions of a steel gong or deer/hog/coyote vital area.
 
I was just looking for suggestions of other possible scope models that offer a similar elevation turret graduated in yards... without going to a cheap Chinese optic.
