    Nikon and Bushnell are going to be the best bang for the buck in that price range I think. Might also check out Mueller Optics as well.

    If your intention is hunting, you can probably get a Leupold 2-7 or 3-9 for about $200.

    $200 should get you several decent scopes for hunting.

    These days, you can get many good scopes for a rifle at the $200 price. I'd start with the Nikkon. I don't own any, but I've looked thru several in that price range and for what you need. They are clear and best of all, usable. Jmho!

    I have a Nikon Buckmasters 3-9 and a Swift 4-16. Both are about $200. I like the Swift better, but the price was right on the Nikon as well.

    Nikon Prostaff 3x-9x-40mm, and Weaver 2x-10x-38mm are both available for $150-$160 range and both are decent scopes. The optical quality & tracking/adjustments are both good on them. I can recommend either 1.

    I have become a fan of the Mueller scope. Good scope for the money.

    With $200 you'll have some good choices
    IMO, I'll start with Nikkon :)

    Take a look at opticzone.com or Bruno Shooters Supply. Some of the best prices on the web. For that price point, another good option is the Bushnell 3200 3-9X40. It is priced at $189 at Optic Zone. Good value with the Rainguard coating.

    Nikon Buckmaster 3x9x40 is a tough all around scope for about $175.00 new.

    My vote goes to either the Nikon Prostaff or Buckmaster.

    There's Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40($200), Burris FullfieldII 3-9x40($200), Redfield Revolution 2-7x33($160) or Redfield 3-9x40($200), Leupold Rifleman 3-9x40($225), Bushnell Elite 3-9x40($250), Weaver 3-9x40($200), Center Point Adventure 3-9x40($60)--they say this scope is tested for up to Rigby 416, Sightron II 3-9x40($200) older used Japanese Tascos 3-9x40($25), and you can/could get any newer scope, USED, for lots less than new, but warranty possibly won't follow, but really, how many times will a good, well made scope go for repairs---probably never? I've bought a couple used scopes, and if you know what you're looking at, along with seeing how abused that scope looks, you'll probably be just fine with a used scope. I'm also talking about actually holding/checking over used scope in hands and NOT purchased over the Internet.

    Burris Timberline 2x7 compact scopes are pretty slick. Have a couple on carbines. Like them enough thinking I have my larger hunting rifles over scoped. Pretty rare for me to shoot a critter over 200 yards. These little scopes don't add much weight, don't get hung up or bang around, and are very clear. Sometimes less is more. But not a good choice for long range paper pluggin.
