    Id go Zeiss Conquest mate. Very good value and some go for cheap as on here at times but 3-9.
    Next I'd go 2-7 leupold on a 308. Not what your after I know. Ive had both on 308's and both excellent combinations imo.
    Kahles sell for cheap too. Within your budget...That's what's on my 260 and 308's. (2.5-10x50's).
