I'd have to agree with the above.. Anything not $200+ is going to be a waste.. I rented a spotting scope at Sac Valley. I didn't look but it was probably a Barska or something it was green and my old 4x12 40mm Bushnell banner scope was better than the spotting scope LOL. I think ya really have to go and stick an eye on a scope in a store to find anything for cheap. Let me know if ya find something under $250 that can see a bullet hole on paper at 200 yards.
