Considering its a 308 the 12x is probly ok lol. I would ASSume OP wants less than 1500 yd capability(I hope). Sightron is good, vortex, weaver tactical($700+), bushnell tactical($700+) all would be good ones to look thru.
Also dont discount bushy 3200 and 4200.
Remember the advice you are giving that you got off of the internet and don't REALLY KNOW works might cause a miss or a wounded animal or a dead hunter. Please for the sports sake be 100% sure when you post something.
Per the NRA "long range STARTS at 600".
If your gun kicks get a brake....and some muffs. Unless your a masochist then its ok. Except you won't shoot as well.
