Best optic for a .308 for $200 or less?

I'm planning on getting a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308 as a long range hunting rifle (up to 800 yards), and I was wondering what the best optic would be for $200 or less. I might be willing to go a little higher, bit I'm on a bit of a budget. Also, I would definitely like something with a Mil Dot reticle, to make longer range shots a bit easier. Also, I'm really only getting a cheaper scope for now as a starter scope, and then as my budget allows I'll advance to something a bit better. I've been considering getting the Center Point 4-16X40mm with the illuminated mil dot reticle (a $70 scope from Wal-Mart), but I usually don't buy from Wal-Mart since they don't really treat their stuff all that well usually. Anyways, if anyone has any scopes that they like or would recommend, you help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely- Ace762.

    Keep saving your $ until you have enough to buy a decent scope, $200 won't get you much and you have a good rifle, just my opinion.

    +1 for the bushnell at $200, if you get up to about $300 you have the swfa ss 10x42 with parallax adjustment. other than those two fixed power scopes keep saving and waiting.

    Cruise the 'for sale' ads on here.... Seems as though everyone is selling their stuff. Today, 200 bucks won't buy a bag of groceries, let alone something with decent glass.

    You can buy a BURRIS E1 3X9X40 for $200.00 I have beat the crap out of them and they have
    stayed dead on. Take a good look at them also.
    Every Bushnell Banner I have had or my friends have owned they died at the wrong place and time. They are good on a .22MAG.
