If you are going for small targets at extended distances, yes, a good scope is valuable. (I'd even say most people would suggest a step up from the scopes you listed, if you plan to do a lot of work past 500yds.)

Usually, .308 is considered about an 800yd cartridge, for precision shooting. Most loadings will drop subsonic in that neighborhood, which with many bullets means a reduction in accuracy. Using a longer barrel (to a point), will give you more velocity, which will keep the bullet supersonic to a longer distance. That is why you see a lot of 6 or 6.5mm chambered guns for long-range shooting these days.
