I am looking for a decent long range optic that has an illuminated mil-hash reticle in the sub 1K range to mount on a .308 bolt rifle.  I have seemingly narrowed it down to the following but each of them has various issues I an concerned about.  Any experience or opinions is welcome.  I would love an SWFA optic but none of them match my criteria.

Weaver 3-15x50 Tactical:  Good reviews.  Good price point.  Not thrilled about reticle.

Bushnell 3-12x44 Elite:  Good reviews.  Good price point.  Good reticle.  Questionable QC.

Vortex: 4-16x50 PST:  Decent reviews.  Good price point.  Ok reticle.  Questionable glass.

Any other options I am missing or should consider ?  Thanks.

The referenced optic does not meet the criteria of an illuminated reticle.

Why do you need illuminated reticle?

I enjoy shooting at dusk and low light conditions.

How about the Vortex 6-24 PST?  It's not the same power range you mention, but the one I have looked through had very good glass.  I have a Vortex 4-16x44 HSLR and the glass is ok, not great. The 6-24 PST glass was much better.
