.22 & (eventually) .308 Scope under $500 or $1500

Brands: Nikkon, Leupold, Nightforce, Leica, S&B, ?

Use: Current - paper punching @ 100 yds with "my" ultimate 10/22. Later - paper punching with .308 @ 600, 800 yds.

Desire: Seeing the .22 bullet holes @ 100 yds. Quality, Functionality. Ruggedness - in that order.

Question: Which scope around $1.5k for this purpose? & Which scope around $.5k for thise purpose? I'm really curious what I'm going to get for the extra $1k.

Extra info: I don't want to buy a super cheap scope for my 10/22. Period. I hate crappy optics. I want to buy more optics than I need, and be done with it. Like I said, eventually I hope to put these on a different gun, then maybe I'll get something less expensive for the 10/22.

BTW: I have a few models for consideration, I just don't know enough (even with reading quite a bit) to know which way to spend my dough.

Thanks in advance,

S&B and Leupold are the only 2 names I would trust for what you want. The extra grand between a 500 scope and a 1500 scope usually get you a more ruggard housing, better resistance to water more minutes of angle of adjustment and a better warrenty. Also dont forget the Base and rings are just as important as a quality scope. Both the companies I named made a variety of reticle paterns. Magnification options and features but I have used both for years without fail. Even if they did both companies stand behind their products with good customer service and warrenties.

just in case anyone else is in the same boat.

Found everything I needed for $399.99 + mounts. Leupold VX-ii 3-9 EFR. All the goodies (coatings, weatherproof) and EFR so you can focus up close for the .22, and far away for the .308.

And I'm putting the extra dough (~1000) towards a spotting scope, as was suggested by other individuals I shoot with and I can't agrue with their reasons for now.
