well, it is really al dependent upon the purpose of the rifle. .308 is not that great for long distances, i do not know if you will shoot it much beyond 300yds - you may, of course, but, it depends.Exactly. Overall I'm happy with the scope and the rifle! It was freezing and windy out today so we didn't stay long. I'm eyeing 5-25x for my AR-10. I want to see what more magnification is like.
the scope i see fits very well a .308 gas is this primary arms - it has no zero stop, but, realistically it is not needed as you can operate it by reticle alone.

there is also a 'hera' option there for MOA based reticle, but, it is a same thing.
other options, of course, would be vortex scopes in 3-15x or 5-25x, for that i gave before eurooptic discounts page. 5-25x is not great for hunting, if you ever want that .308 to hunt with, a 3-15x or 18x would be better there.
25x is really a thing on rifles that are 1/2moa or better accurate, there it may matter to be capable to plant bullets into the same holes over and over - otherwise it is not going to be giving you much. but if you get a good pst2 5-25x vortex you can always put it later on a precision bolt rig, good scopes always find a spot to be on, bad scopes - not so much.
