I've had a 20 and a 24 on my .308's, and while the 20 was a 1K tack-driver, the 24 is also nice with the added velocity and stabilizing bigger heavier bullets.
So, I'd have to say that from now on my .308's will be 24-26" barrels.
The scope was a cheap-o with good mounts, but it's help zero no problems, and it's even holding a good zero on my big 7mm STW. While it's not the nicest scope in the world, and as long as you realize that going into it, you'll be ok.
I used a Konus M-30 8.5-32x52 scope. With an EGW HD (aluminum) 0-MOA base. And TPS TSR (aluminum) 30mm Low-height rings.
Here's a pic with it all set up.
