Not too sure about vertical travel, but there are plenty of nice optics in that price range.
I personally own 2 Athalon scopes
I have an Athalon Ares BTR Gen 2 4.5~27x50 and I would say for the money it would be hard to do much better.
Big Jim Fisher did a review here.

That seems like the standard for the higher end scopes. Should take you out really far.

Anyone have any first or even second hand experience with this particular Bushnell scope?

It is a very good scope. Everything about it, especially for the price.

Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25 has a lot of travel and can be found for around $500 if you have military/leo qualifications. It's been getting good reviews on Snipershide. I would think this would be a great candidate for a .22!

says it has 31 mil or 110 moa.

Bushnell is releasing a new scope that will be center-fire rated, but has 10-yd parallax ability and a decent price. Only 18 MILS internal, but how far are you going with a .22, and you can put it on a 30MOA base if necessary.

Gonna need all that travel to get a .22lr to 400 yards. And, that's 3 revs on the turret. I wouldn't trust that with a Vortex.
