I can just comment on the spacemaster and the Bushnell excursion FLP since I have both. There is no comparison the Excursion FLP is much superior in clarity and brightness.

Duce, even though  the FLP is superior can you see the 7.62 bullet holes at 300 yards with the Spacemaster/

I have this one and I have a tough time seeing 30 cal holes with it at 200 yds probably out to spend more money and get ED glass.

No you are doing well if you can see them at 100 yards with the spacemaster, I quit trying and used my binos instead till I got the FLP

I can see 30 caliber holes fairly easily at 200 yards with my spacemaster.  200 yards is the extent of the range that I go to, though.  I think 300 yards might be pushing it.  I would guess that I couldn't at 300 yards.

edit to add.  If I had to do it over again I'd save a little more and get the FLP.
