Jon - Try and have a play with the Bushnell before buying. Some people get on with them and some struggle with ranging above 45 yards.
I would try a big Nikko (Diamond) if you are worried about spending too much or if your heart is set on a Bushnell then the 8-32x40 Elite (not a sidewheel but still excellent and used by a few shooters)
Best advice is try as many as you can before spending cash.
