Default Spotting scope

Any good spotting scopes for under $100 that you guys can recommend? Looking for something for up to 200 yards. It will only be used at the shooting range.

You are going to have a hard time seeing .223 holes at 200 yards with that scope. For $60 more, I have used the OPMOD out to 200 yards.

Seen a 20x60x80 on Amazon for about 160 bucks and think that one will do it. Same model going for $230 elsewhere. Optima 80 ?

With my eyes I have had better luck using a cheaper rifle scope that cost under $100.00 and use it as a spotting scope THAN a spotting scope that cost less than $100.00

Big 5 had a Barska scope for $100 that is halfway decent.
