    I think there's a pretty big difference between a $50 scope and a $200 scope. But a $1000 scope isn't 5 times better than the $200 one. (Like a $20 bottle of wine is a lot better than a $5 bottle of wine, but I don't even know what a $100 bottle of wine tastes like.) If you can afford it, I think a $300 or $400 dollar scope is worth the extra money over the bargain model. But to me, the top of the line isn't worth so much money.
    That's a good way to phrase it

      A mid-priced scope, say around $400.00 will have overall better optic quality than a cheaper scope of $100.00. Scopes are a bit more complicated than we might think, it just isn't tuning the knobs for elevation and windage. There is glass quality, number of coatings on the lens, internal movements such as gears, etc. and that is where the cost of money comes in. Cheaper scopes will have less lens coatings, etc. which in turn the optics are minimal. This is where the benefits of a costlier scope comes in; more lens coatings, better glass quality, overall better optics. Do you need a $2,000.00 scope on a $600.00 rifle, probably not; but than again you don't want a cheap scope on your rifle either. As the saying goes "You get what you paid for."
      I agree to some extent, but at some point the 2x rule falls apart

          I'm with the others on this. A lower cost scope should work fine unless you need to see detail in low light conditions.
