I can see 243 hits at 200 yards and the elk at about 600 yards looked like they were right in front of me. The scope is clear and it has a fine adjustment focus knob that is nice. Look through several different models at a sporting goods store. Look out a window if possible. Clarity is the most important quality so try to see which one can see fine details as far away as you can.
You can't fix stupid....however ignorance can be cured through education!
