J300UM, don't overlook the Bushnell Elite 4200 6x - 24x Tactical. I got it and Burris XTR 30mm rings for $609 shipped, and have ocasionally seen the scope cheaper since. I've been using Elites since they were Bausch and Lomb and I have had only positive experiences with the 4000 series. Lots of scope for the money. Range of adjustment is a little weak, but I can squeeze 1200 yards out of mine on my 338/ 300 Ultra when it is mounted on a 20 moa rail.
