Burris Fullfield II is one you might want to consider in that price range or less if you shop around? Seem to be brighter optics in my opinion?

For that price I would buy a Bushnell Elite 3200 first! I have looked at the scopes you mentioned and am not overly impressed.

I have the nikon omega scope w/ the bdc very nice scope for $200.
Good in low light.
Have not used the bdc range finding system not sure if it worth the money but it may be , I just do not have an opinion on that aspect yet.
