Re: what scope to get?
Welcome to LRH. I am an avid Vortex Viper fan. That would the route to go. But the older Bushnell 4200 Elite is the way to go or better yet a used Tactical model. I am also a huge fan of the Nikon Buckmaster series. I have the 4.5x14x40 and have owned and used the 6-18x40. Both are very nice scopes and good glass. Don't know anything about the other scope you asked about. Might be able to get into a Nikon Monarch also for the $500 mark. Falcon Menace would be a good scope to look into. Check out SWFA.com. They are good to work with and offer a huge selection in scopes. I've been told the Millets are a lot better now than when they started out. May want to look into the LRS. It's been getting good reviews. Again though, I prefer the Vortex.
