Re: 200dollar scope
Nikon prostaff series are the best bang for the buck. I have three and none have failed me. The can take bumps, water proof, fog proof, clear glass, and repeatable adjustments, although, very limited by the 1 inch tube. The mildot versions will put them past the $200.00 mark though. You can leave the caps off of them and they have finger adjustable turrets. You have some options now though...SWFA 10x, Bushnell 10x, Nikon Prostaff, and then the redfields which I believe are made in the USA by leupold (dont qoute me on that though).
