Scopes - Medium Range Target Shooting

Planning on buying another target rifle sometime soon, not sure on caliber yet, but i'm trying to narrow down a scope for the rifle. Now, I'm not a competition shooter and won't be, this is just another fun range toy for medium distances with max range probably never exceeding 500yds with 200-300yds being the norm.

Calibers i'm considering are:
.223, .22-250, .243, 6.5, 7mm-08

I've used quite a few different brands of scopes over the years,
and some I'm sure I'm not remembering. Was thinking of trying one that I haven't used before. Looking to stay under $400.

Any of you have or have used any of the following brands/models of scopes?
What did you like or dislike about them?
Any other brands/models I should look at that I haven't already had/tried?

Millet: TRS or LRS
Hawke Sport Optics: Not sure on Model, just wondering how the quality and clarity are.
Konus: Which Models?

TIA for any help or insight.
