With your budget, you would do very well with either the Kahles or the S&B you referenced, that is for sure.  I think you're decision would come down to which focal plane, recticle preference, weight, etc.

Gregester -

 

Optically, they are nice.  I've always found them to feel very heavy, however.

They are heavy, they are clear, they are great.  They are very tactical in nature (overbuilt.)

Since you like the S&B, I'd say take that route.  Kahles makes good glass, either would be a fine choice.   I would avoid a FFP on a short-range scope, if - as ND said, that is an option.

Get the S&B be done!
