Go to Leupold's website - then click on their custom shop. You can build an awesome scope with your name engraved on the turret and a BDC matched to your favorite load. You can do it all for under $500.
Second choice - Zeiss Conquest, I can only speak to the older version of the conquest, not the Terra. I have the exact same rig you are building, but in .300 win mag and it has a Zeiss on it and I have been extremely pleased, from Texas to Alaska it has worked great.

I would go with Redfield or Leupold in that range. Have both and they work great. Have been impressed with Redfield scopes and mounts over the years. In one particular situation, I dropped my rifle several feet while climbing a ridge in Colorado. The scope took it hard against a rock and it was almost like looking through a coke bottle. I walked another 1/4 mile to find a place to shoot my gun. I spotted a coke-can-size rock about 100 yards away across a small draw. I squeezed the trigger and the rock exploded as the bullet hit it. Just then, a mule deer buck jumped out of the draw and the next shot went right through his lungs. That made me a believer in Redfield and have never had any issues.
