I want a 1-4 ish optic for my 6.8. The rifle will be used for hunting so low light and clarity is a plus. Where I currently hunt I am looking at a max 100-yard shot but want to get an optic that will allow me to fully use the effective range of the 6.8 on deer, so out to 300 yards. I have a budget of $500.

I have been looking at the following:

1. SWFA SS 1-4x24 Tactical 
2. Burris 1-4x24 MTAC
3. Vortex 1-6x24 Strike Eagle

Are there any others I should be looking at in this price range? Which would be the best optic for my money?

SWFA SS would be the better option of these three.

You should also be looking at HiLux CMR4 1-4x24 and Vortex PST 1-4x24

Recently took a hog using a 300 Blackout AR and an SWFA 1-6X scope at about 80 yards.  Other hunters in the group were running Primary Arms 1-6x and Leupold's hog hunter VX-R.  No comparison in the glass quality with the SWFA clearly the better scope.  I had no issues putting a round through his ear 30 minutes before sunset while he was rooting around under a large oak tree.  Magnification was sitting at 4x and didn't need the illumination.  Latter helped latter as it was getting closer to sunset.

Both the SWFA 1-4X and 1-6X are currently priced higher than your $500 budget but who knows what Black Friday will bring.

The HiLux CMR that Koshkin recommended is an excellent budget scope and great value for its money.  I used it on a S&W M&P 15-22 as a trainer and my son used that setup on a jack rabbit hunt with very good success.

That is their Classic line.  Think you will appreciate their HD glass for the objectives you have but comes at a price.
