I don't know how much difference 2 more inches of barrel makes, but my 18" Ruger Predator is about 50-60 fps slower than my 22" rifles.

I can do anything I need to do with a 308 with 6X to 9X on the upper end. I don't see the need for 12X unless you are shooting very small varmints at long range with an extremely accurate rifle. I'd think a 1-6X scope would do fine well past 400 yards, and a 16" barrel will get you well past 400 yards.
