I have $400 to spend on an angled scope. New or good used is OK. I want to use it for shooting; handgun and high power rifle and need to see the holes from 100-300 yards. Which scopes should I look at. I have a BSA that is crap.

Thanks. It looks like I may be able to scrape up some more cash and am considering a Kowa 45 degree angled scope. Can anyone recommend what would be a good all around model?

I forgot to ask, how important are the different coating options? I see they make quite a difference in the price.
