Default Help me choose a good spotting scope 20x60

Saturday broke mine so now need new 20x60 for abouf $100 bucks. I shoot mostly 200yds. with my AK . I like Ak imports but prefer domestic spotting scope. Wanted to go out today and shoot with the other Vets. But now can't. Lookin for some good feed back for the 20x60 spotting scope.

You cant shoot without a spotting scope?
Any spotter for $100 is going to be a POS and sure as heck wont be Domestic

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.

Based on my wasted $60, I will definitely look through it before I bone out.
