For me it would be far larger than necessary and to put it on a scout/carbine type firearm which is intended to be "handy" kind of defeats that purpose plus a lot of extra weight.
Military operators and LE folks rarely use optics more than 10X and usually fixed, not variables and shots at the ranges you mention are not uncommon. The 1-8x seems more fitting for the Scout platform, but it's your money and your rifle. Just a suggestion.
