If you could get a meopta meostar 3-10x50 for $599 or a kahles helia cl 4-12x52 for $699 which would you get?  Also do both of these have etched glass reticles?  Thanks

Tough call, I own both Meopta and Kahles products and am very satisfied with both. What kind of rifle and caliber is this intended for?

I haven't made up my mind for sure but I'm leaning to a Tikka T3 in 308.

I have a CL 3-10X50 and really like it!  I haven't looked thru that Meopta, so can't compare the two, but it seems like the Meopta has a little shorter eye relief.

I have a Kahles CL 4-12x52 Multi-Zero and in my opinion it would make an awesome hunting scope on a lightweight Tikka T3. Mine is currently mounted on a Rem 700 5R Milspec and is pre-set for ranges between 200 and 600 yards.  
 
Seems like you need to decide if the Kahles' slightly lighter weight, extra 10mm of eye relief, and somewhat higher top end magnification are worth the extra $100 over the price of the Meopta. Honestly, I think both are optical standouts and either choice will provide much enjoyment and satisfaction. Good luck to you!
