For my 300 WSM Win Featherweight rifle weight was a major factor when it came to the scope. I settled with the Burris 4.5-14X32mm Short mag scope with Ballistic Plex reticle. At 15 oz and $332 at SWFA it a great scope. It's 11.3 inches long has great optics, very good light transmission.
I liked mine enough that I put one on my sons Fetherweight .243 and we'll be putting another on my other son's .243 featherweight.
Optics are as good as Leupold.
Hope it helps
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
