Personally for the money I think it is very hard to beat the vortex scopes. Vortex viper 6-24x50 with a 30mm tube in the $450 range I feel is a very nice scope and you can have the turret cut for your load as well. I love the vortex optics and their warrenty program is very hard to beat. I own 3 vortex vipers with the bdc retical which is kind of nice, 1 viper hs. I also have a 5-20x50 huskemaw
and I really like it also.
