The only scope I can come up with, and the least expensive, will be the excellent Leupold VX2 6-18x40 with the CDS dial. The CDS dial is custom built for you in their custom shop with ballistic information you provide. Cartridge, velocity, bullet type, weight, ballistic coefficient, elevation, and temperature. It will be a single turn with the maximum distance depending on your cartridge. The dial will have a positive stop at where you want your zero to be. It is called a zero stop.
I used one on this hunt in Wyoming:

I am brand new to long range shooting but bought a .300 wsm today. I know what specs I am looking for in a scope but cant seem to find exactly what I am looking for. What is the technical term for the scopes with the adjustable turrets especially on the elevation turret where it has hash marks and a "0" to take the scope back to your 100 or 200 yard zero. I can find what I am looking for in the $1,000 plus range but I am looking in the $400 to $500 range. Adjustable turrets with the hashmarks and zero function. Parallax adjustment, and at least up to around 20x magnification. If I were to search up a scope with the turret style I am looking for what is the term I call it?
