Looking for a reasonably priced spotting scope. I would like to be able to see my groups at 300yds. Mostly .223, some .308. Trying to keep it around $300 would go to $500 if necesarry.

Thanks. 45x is good enough to see .223 at 300yds?

That is enough magnification, if the atmosphere is cooperating.  I would be confident in saying you could see a reactive target at that range (Shoot-N-C and the like).

I'm sure you've probably bought a spotter by now, but in case you haven't...I have a Theron Saker, I used it at the range last week and was able to see the holes in my targets at 200 yards easily(shooting a 7mm RM, so .284 dia.)  Haven't tried to see if I can resolve holes in the targets at 300 yet, but if I get to the range this weekend I'll post my results.

Follow up:  Just got back from the range, I was able to see the holes I was punching at 300 yards with my Saker spotter, however given the groups that I was printing, I almost wish I wasn't able to see the holes Sad.  Keep in mind that this is a 7mm, your .308 you'd be able to see easily I'd bet, not so sure about .223 holes, but possibly.
