If you aren't going to be shooting groups extensively, I would think a little less magnification would be good, especially if you are using a reticle for holdovers, as they will typically be subtended at or near the maximum magnification.

A Zeiss Conquest 3-9X40 or 3.5-10X44 with the Rapid Z 600 or 800 reticle would be an excellent all-around choice.

The Swarovski Z3 3-10X42 or 4-12X50 w/ BRH reticle would also be a great combo w/ your cartridge.

I like Husky's VX-6 recommendation, but I am not a big fan of the tapered windage bars on the B&C reticle. The CDS dial and duplex reticle would be the way I would go with that scope.

Keep us posted on how it works out.
