Default Need Advice On Buying A New Scope

I bought a Remington 700 .308. I need a scope for it. I'm new to the illuminated scope arena. I'm planning on buying an illuminated scope with a budget of around 300.00 ish. I feel I should be able to get a good for around that price range. I've read some reviews about poor illumination during daylight hours. Does that mean middle of the day? Surely I should be able to find a scope with illumination during the early morning hours after sunrise (7-10)???

Good glass is important. I'm asking for suggestions on brands, how the illumination works, etc.
Your input will be appreciated.

Thanks.

It is hard to go wrong with a Vortex product. Out of curiosity, why an illuminated scope (I'm presuming you're talking about the reticle being illuminated)?

I'm a fan of Vortex scopes too. Always had good experiences with them. The Vortex Diamondback is also right in your price range ($200-$250ish).
