    why get a scope for that distance? why not get good at the irons before moving up?

    simmons aetec is cheap and they have a vari-magnification model that extends to 12x. under 200.

    i am just starting out. i figured i shouldn't spend that much until i know what i am doing.

    you mean 12x would be good enough for that range? i also need another scope to verify the shots. should i get a better one for that? thx

    Use the irons; no need for a scope :)

    simmons is cheap enough and not too bad.

    i cant see my hits at 100 w/ a 9x magnification scope, might want a spotting scope or a good set of binoculars or something for that.

    They mean use the iron sights on the rifle and get good at shooting with them before upgrading to a scope.
