    Anyone have a good spotting scope for under $200 they recommend??

    After shooting some distance over the weekend and trying to use my Padre's cheap Winchester spotting scope, I have decided it's time to upgrade the spotting scope, but dont want to spend a "gun" for one, so looking to find a decent optic under $200. Most likely the bulk of use would be in the 300-600yd range, with an occasional 600-800yd day. I am not too fussy about fancy features, just want something that is clear.

    That's a tall order. My first spotting scope was $70 Barska 20-60x60. The clarity was so bad I could get a better look through my 15x max magnification rifle scope. Let me know if you find a good one in that range. It seems like the next tier starts around $500-$600

    I ended up going with the Redfield Rampage and it fits the criteria above and is a decent scope!
    Here is my review.
