I wasn't thinking about it, but a Bushnell Banner Dusk to Dawn is a nice scope that should cost under $200. I've got a 6x18 on my 7mm Rem Mag and it's a great scope, clear, pulls in a lot of light and decently priced. It's not the scope my Nikon is, but it sounds like the right price for what you plan on using it for.
