I was looking at the cheaper scopes out there (tasco, Bausch & lomb), and I decided to take a step up to the Burris Landmark 20-60x80. [url=natchezss.com]Natchez[/url] has it for $173, and it's very nice. I can see .223 bullet holes very easily at 100 yards, and have no doubt that I could see them at 200. Probably could see .308 well beyond that. The optics are very clear. My one advice would be to get a very solid tripod. At 60x, a little wind vibration makes for a very shaky image!

Does nobody else shoot at the range and use a spotting scope???

[bounce]I do, I do![bounce] It beats waiting for the oldtimers to finish their string of fire, before you can check groupings. I found a used Champion's Choice on the EE here, for $250 w/ stand, 22x and 40x eyepieces

I 've got an inexpensive,(nice word for cheap), Bushnell spotting scope. I don't know how I ever got along without it. You can easily see .223 holes at 100yrds with it.
