Hi all, I have the opportunity to get a Burris Black Diamond 6-24 power from a friend, slightly used, for $400, and that's all the money I have. I don't think I'll ever have more money than this for a scope so don't even mention saving for a US Optics SN-9 or the like! He will be buying a Vortex Viper PST FFP for his .308 once he sells the Burris.
My question is, is there something better for the price (for me)? Should I look somewhere else, to another brand possibly to get the best bang for my buck(s)?
Here's a link to the Burris:

I will be banging long-range gongs and punching paper with a 30-06 that will become a 6.5x284 soon at which point will be used for long-range deer and below game.
Thanks for your help,
