$325 to spend on a scope

It's store credit at my local gun store. Here are some options.

Nikon Prostaff 5 3-9x40 $350
Nikon Buckmaster BDC 3-9x40 $170
Leupold VX1 3-9x40 $230
Leupold VX2 3-9x40 $299

Or a used VX3 2.5-8x36 for $325, like new in box, 2013 model

Also there are some Nikon M223 and Leupold Mark AR with turrets that I like better but they're only for 223 right?

This is going on a Savage Weather Warrior in 243. For Deer, Coyote, etc inside of 400 yards. Maybe some plinking at a range up to 600 yards.

Went with the used VX3, wished it had a little more magnification but it looked the brightest and clearest.

That's the one I would have chosen.

Great scope.
