i am a new member and coincidentally i am posting my first post by originating this thread
. i searched internet thoroughly and finally decided to join this forum as i find it more generous 
and courteous as well
Actually i am going to take part in a rifle shooting competition to be held in last of February
or inception of March . i have to shoot at the target 400 yards down range and i would 
be using a custom made parker hale 308 rifle . I can not decide which scope to use .However,
i have short listed the following scopes 
1. Bushnell Elite
 2.burris fulfield
3. vortex diamondback
4 redfield revenge  

the order i put the scope names do not show my preferences 

i would be grateful to the collective wisdom of this forum if you all knowledgeable 
and respected members   help me decide which one be most suitable for the above competition

You don't detail much on what style of competition or if 400 yds is the only distance you will be shooting but I might suggest that you also look at some of the sightrons on sale right now. There is a 12x with target turrents and AO that should be a pretty decent target scope.

zain. I am going to assume this rifle is a custom target rifle that you will be using mainly as a range rifle and not a hunting gun as well. For my target guns I prefer a simple fine crosshairs with dot reticle and 1/8 moa clicks to make fine adjustments. Just my preference but it works well for me. The fixed 12x Sightron would be a good choice. I just put a 24x on my 17hmr range queen. Haven't had a chance to use it yet but I have other Sightron scopes and they are the best scopes I have. I also have a 4-20x50 Weaver Super slam on a 223 that is used out to 600yds and for the occasional varmint hunt. Based on your selections I have a general idea of your budget. I would also look at the following scope http://swfa.com/Nikon-6-18x40-Buckmaster-Riflescope-P42212.aspx A friend of mine has that scope on a 22-250 that I have used and it would suit your application well.

biggreen747 , thanks for input . well, the immediate purpose of acquisition of this rifle 
is to participate in the competition where i have to fire fire at target/ bull with nine rings
as it happens in any target shooting competition, but a cant rule out of using that rifle in occasional 
hunts .though you are right in general idea about   my budget yet i am tempted on a 24x that 
u have mentioned, would love to hear some thing abut it , after all i am still an optics grasshopper
