I think I'd go with the 3200 also.  Just MHO.

The prostaff won't fit very well.  The other two should be fine.

ive got low rings on all of my guns, the issue i ran into was on my .375H&H, i had the 4200 elite on it and the front scope cap couldnt clear the barrel the scope could though. i havent ever used talley rings either so their heights may be different than what im accustomed to. i generally use leupold rings and bases, cause they are fairly reasonable to buy price wise.

Glass may be slightly better on the Team Primos but think the 3200 is a better scope.
