This is a GOOD one. Around your price range.

Konuspot 80

I have a spotting scope for sale...cheap, never used it as my Leupold scope is better.
I do not remember the brand. I got it at BIG5 (was priced $200). I will sell it for $75

Wrong forum.

For your price point the Konus is worth looking at. IMO you might want to try and save up and get a second hand Kowa with a LER eyepiece, you won't ever need to buy another scope.

Any input on the Burris ones? They seem to be priced slightly higher than the konuspot and has the burris name.

The Konuspot 80 is the only choice in that price range.

Barska makes a decent scope for the range. I wouldn't use it for hunting but it does the job.

In your price range, you shouldn't expect to spot 22 cal holes much beyond 150 yards. If it is a low light day or there is mirage, then even 150 yards can be a tall order for spotting 22 cal holes.

Save your money, get a better scope. That is, unless you only shoot at 100 yards (which many people do).

The Konuspot 80 is great for that price range.
