I am new to rifles, been shooting handguns for some time now, and I'd like to get everyones opinion on the above listed scope. It will be going on a .308 rifle which will primarily be used at the range between 100-600 yds. I would eventually like to move up to 1000yds as my skill level increases (hopefully). 
It's likely that I will be doing some hunting with this rifle from time to time also, therefore a variable power scope is what I'm leaning towards. 

I can have this scope for $350.00 shipped. I have searched everywhere online (countless articles and forums) trying to find the best scope to suit my needs for under $400. 
If you do not have any experience with this scope feel free to suggest another brand, model, magnification within the budget. Anything you feel is the best bang for my buck will be greatly appreciated.

The monarch has a limited MOA adjustment (40 according to their site) so you may be limited to closer ranges and have to upgrade to a different scope to go farther out.  To learn to shoot and get good at close ranges less than 500 it may work.  I am by no means an expert but there are several that will chime in and get more technicall.  Welcome to the OT and good luck and enjoy your new hobby.  Are you looking at doing mainly target shooting?  The SS 10X is hard to beat for what your describing you want.
