I recently purchased a Browning Micro chambered in .243.  My setup would primarily be used for stand hunting early am and late pm. I have narrowed my scope choices to the below scopes but have concerns that of these scopes, which one would likely be the best fit for a short action 39.5" rifle?
 
Zeiss 2.5-8x32
Sightron Big Sky 3-9x42
Bushnell Elite 4200 3-9x40
Vortex Viper 2-7x32
 
I currently own a Sightron Big Sky 1.25-5x20 which I have mounted on my BLR .270 and I really like the glass and FOV for jump shooting in CRP, but on stand it quickly starts to fail near at first light and just before dark.  Also, the 5x magnification is a tad weak when glassing deer at 500+ yards.

Of your mentioned choices, I'd pick the Zeiss Conquest. The Viper's are pretty decxent too. Pony up a bit and look at the Swaro AV (old) 3-9 X 36 or the Z-3 (new) series.

Zeiss Conquest all the way.  2nd choice would be the 4200.

If your happy with your existing sightron, why not buy another.  These scopes are closely matched both optically and power wise, I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.

One of my primary concerns is in mounting a 12+ inch scope on a rifle of this size.  Is there concerns due to the closer ring spacing and my desire to have the scope set "balanced" between the rings.  Is there potential issues with having to set a longer scope set too far forward/rearward when addressing eye relief and balance between the rings?
