Luckily within that budget, you have several options. However the distance is the concerning factor for me. For game, you hard pressed to obtain accurate ranging out to 800. Large inanimate objects out to 900, but reflective target out to a little over 1000.
Personally I am using Leupold's 1200i, and I really like it. I haven't spent a lot of time ranging with it, but it does get some use, I have been so busy, I haven't been able to hunt much this year.
Are you wanting this to hunt with? Or are you using this to get into shooting longer ranges?
