It is not just 1 person. I have seen plenty of people who shoot cheaper scopes and they can out shoot plenty of people. I am not even sure why you are sticking your nose in to this really. From your posts only about 2% are gun related.
It all goes to budget. My budget allows me to buy custom built guns using only the best actions, barrels, scopes and ammo. This man's allows for him to only spare $200 for a good scope. You can get a good scope for $200. No matter what you or any other optic snobs here say.
As for Barska and NCStar I didn't recommend one nor did anyone else really.
Same goes for calibers. Many here jump right to long belted mags with talking long range. 7mm mag, 300 win mag, 338 laupa (Yes I know this is not belted). I seen people shooting 243, 6mmxc, 6 dasher's at 1k yards and winning. In fact if you ask some of the guys on the US F-class team they would rather shoot a 6mm cartridge over a 308. I know this because I have shot with them.
