I personally use a 6.5-20x50 Vortex Viper on my 270wsm and will be using a 6-24x50 FFP PST on one of my 338s this season.

Both guns used can shoot to 1000 plus with those scopes.

I have a 4-16 Leupold on my long range rig. I think that is a wise choice. 4x is not to much if they show up closer than you expected and 16x has been plenty for me.
