i have about a 500 dollar budget and need something that will perform to 800 meters. I may also have the action rechambered to .308 and sell everything but the action and build a custom rifle from there.

For shots to 800meters i would rechamber to either 308 or 30-06.
Buy the weaver KT-15, great 15x fixed scope.
Also Mueller makes a 25 power scope that I really really love.

you can get a 4-12x or a 4.5-14x might be a bit more than $500 ahh crap sry

is your mauser modified any? im not sure if a stock mauser 98k is your best selection for 800m shooting

Yes my mauser does have modifications. Its action has been squared and lapped and i have a custom shilen barrel i sent in to match the action and the contour of the original barrel minus the sights.

Yes it is still 8mm, but i have heard this is a suitable sniping cartridge. What are your opinions on this. And to tell you the truth about the optics, if I cant find any I like in the is price range, I am going to save and buy an Unertl 10x with a 2inch objective and 2ft length. Thanx,
