Default M&P AR-10 Scope recommendations?

Have a new M&P AR-10 in camo. Will use primarily for deer & pig hunting. Would like feedback on a scope for up to 200 yd. shooting. Have had good results with Nikon P-233 on my AR 10. Any experience out there with Nikon M-308 w/BDC? Other recommendations in the $500 range? Thanks!

I have a Vortex Viper PST and mount sitting on the shelf waiting for my M&P10 to come back from the gunsmith. I'm planning on a similar use for mine.

Thanks Veeper. Researching Vortex Viper PST. Seem to be a lot of fans out there though I know no one personally with the scope. Appreciate any feedback once your MP 10 is back and you've sent a few rounds down range.

The Leupold vx3 1.5-6x20 is mine, and I love it. There is a 2-8x32 at the same price point ($400) as well as CDS dial for another $50. I can tell you this- clarity is superb, rapid sight aquisition on 1.5 is easy, and 6 is more than enough to put rounds on a 6" pie plate at 200yrds. The eye relief is tight at 6x due to the 20mm objective, but incredibly forgiving 1.5-4. The scope is light, and perfect for this weapon.
