it will probably be okay up to 12X or so before getting dark and fuzzy. why so much scope for a
200 yard (small varmints) rifle?
a good used 6X will do what you need unless you're shooting a fly (yes it's done). check out ebay or
the sample list

well  fridayt is the big day i get   my money. and im going to go  buy a scope  now. i looked thoguh a burris  fullfield ii 3x9x40 an i may sound nuts.  but i tried to get it to focus to my eyes an just couldnt do it.  it was very hard for me to see the  dots on the reticle an  i tried tinkerin with ths scope  for quite some tiem in the store.  

 

im still kinda stuck on  what to do now ive looked though severl banners an i like um. 

 

the  bushnell  banner 3.5x10x36 with the  17 hmr Bullet Drop Compensator are thease good scopes or?

 

only good for paper punching   

 

ive also got my  eye on the pentax gameseeker  3x9x40

 

an another bushnell banner   3x9x50  

 

still having toruble  figruin out what i should get  please any help

First of all here's how to focus a scope. Dont look thru it and turn the eyepiece. You look, look away at a distance (so you eyes refocus), turn it a 1/2 turn and look again and so on. Look at the clear blue sky and ONLY concentrate on getting the crosshairs sharp. If it has an adj objective set it at infinity first.
Again a 17 is a 200 yard rifle on small game. To get a good high power variable costs big money $400 or so. You don't need 10X to shoot a crow at 200 yards.
Again I suggest you lok at Ebay: for example,
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=012&sspagen ame=
STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=220088846995&rd=1&rd=1

A flat new 6X that will probably close at around $75.00 and is superior to the cheap Asian scopes.I think you're making this far too hard on yourself.

 agood scope for the money is a weaver scope with the dot. 6x24. years ago I used LEUPOLD 12x

LOOK FOR A SCOPE THAT SOME ONE WANTS TO SELL IN VARMINTHUNTERS.COM. ON BENCHREST.COM. STICK WITH NAME BRAND
