Hey there, new to forum and was looking for input.  I am picking up a 700LTR in 308 in approx 2 weeks and want to give her really good glass with no more than 10-12 power, (I know 9 is the norm but the couple extra don't hurt).  I would be able to spend around 600.00 but wouldn't mind keeping it to 400.00.  These are some of the ones I am interested in:

 

Leupold VXIII 3.5-10 40mm

Pride and Fowler 3-9 42mm 660RR I think it is called

Burris Euro diamond 3-10x

or the Leupold 3-9x VXII with the custom shop upgrades of my choice from competitor.com

 

Remember the LTR is short and I want the scope to not over power the compactness of the gun.  It will be used for informal 300-400 yard target and deer hunting from 50-200 yrds.  Thanks guys

The Leu VXIII would be my first choice but in a 4.5-14 with a 30mm tube and the B&C reticle. Once you have spent the money to get to the VXIII in a 3.5-10 you might as well go to the 4.5-14 as it will allow you to evaluate the rack on deer at distance much better and you are not really adding a lot in size.

 

Stay away from the P&F,  The Burris Euro scopes should work well also.

Check out the Burris Signature Select and/or Black Diamond.

I wasleaning towards the 30mm 4.5-14 but they are all SF models and I really don't want to be fidling around with parallax while trying to shoot a moving animal
