    Honestly, just go buy a Tasco or a Bushnell. It doesn't have to deal with recoil or anything like that so either should be just fine.

    Supposedly there is a new Bushnell that is completely tits.

    Check out SnipersHide, as I know there was recently a write-up on it.

    check your area for a bushnell outlet store. we have one in overland park kansas and the prices are so crazy cheap in comparison to the stores for minor blemishes etc.

    I use a cheap-ass Konus 30-90 and for what I paid, it's pretty decent

    Yeah, I guess I've missed this thread for a while....

    Regardless, I hope they accidentally purge your optic with hydrogen, it catches fire, and kills you in a Hindenburg-esque fire.

    Find me one of the new Bushnell spotters cheap, buy it, and sell it to me. :naughty:

    I don't know much about spoting scopes but from my experience you need a pretty decent one if you hope to see 223 hits on paper out to 300. I'm lazy. I do my short range zero (25 yards for me with 223) and then figure out my hold overs (zero at 25, zero at 270.) Then I just 10" steel plates to confirm my dope. That's a lot less hiking.
