Save up a few more pennies and get you a Nightforce NXS.

I wanted to keep weight lower on my packer and went with Leupold,TMR cost was not a issue, and in a mil mil it was as much as NF,I had one of the first ones, love the reticle-open center

Save up for a Nightforce if possible if not i would definitely go with a Mark 4, it wouldn't be that much more money to get a Nightforce though, I guess it depends on what your really wanting to get, I am absolutely happy I choose Nightforce over Vortex or Leupold.
