What would be a decent scope for an AR platform (.223) at a 300 yard competition?

Is there a good one for less than $100.00?

$150.00?

It's hard to get a decent scope for $100. Nikon Prostaff is about the cheapest scope I can think of that I actually consider serviceable.

Go up to about $200-$250, and you get into more interesting things.
Bushnell Elite 3200 10x model.
Bushnell Elite 4200 3-9x40mm
Nikon Buckmaster
Weaver V series.

What about a burris timberline 3x9 for $119 at SWFA?

I was actually interested in the Timberline for a bit. The reviews I found of it indicated that it wasn't all that great a scope.

Which one did you get? I was looking at the 4.5X-14X-32mm.

Give us a review when you get it.

I got the timberline 3X9. I put it in SWFA SSALT mounts. This is a very solid setup. I mounted that up on a 6.8SPC AR with 20" barrel. I am waiting on my bullets to come in so I can take it down to the range. Overall I like the feel and construction. The glass is really clear. The adjustments are pretty good and I can hear noticable clicks. I won't know for sure how it will handle until there are some rounds down range. Then I will give a better update. So far it is good for the 119.00 I paid for it.
