Well, I put a Vortex 4-16 x 50 PST on my 11 Lightweight Hunter in 308 for mulies this November. I actually had it on my 338 but it wasn't enough so it came off and a 6.5-24 went on the 338 and the 308 got the 338 cast off.
I can see a speck of fly dung at 1000 yards with the 6.5-24 x 50 and I can see the deatails clearly (texture) too......
Seven and a quarter will get you the Vortex in 4-16 from Doug or Neil at Cameraland....
Thats plenty for the 308.
Admittedly, the Vortex isn't a Nightforce or a Swaro but it's on par with a Leupy for a lot less, has a good as guarantee and has quality Japanese glass.
