Tikka T3x lite in 7mm-08 ($579).

For glass I'd go with something along the lines of one of these:

Zeiss V4 3-12x44 ($849)
Swaro Z3 4-12x50 ($829)
Leupold VX5HD 2-10x42 ($749)

All prices...

I have the RT and it works great at night. Seeing 150-200 yards is not a problem with the built-in IR illuminator. Day time is pretty crappy, but I only got it for night time use.
