He is asking about a scope around $150. You are talking about Leupold Zeiss and Swarorski. This never makes any since to me he is asking about a low cost scope and you are telling him to go out and spend $1000+ on a scope.
For low cost scopes I would look at Mueller optics
I know many guys that demand performance from there firearms and they have Mueller scopes on top of them.
Not everyone can drop $1000+ on a scope. Not everyone needs to spend that much money on a scope. If you are going to shoot the rifle 5 to 10 times a year with 70% of them on the range why do you need a Leupold scope?
