The 'affordable' scopes are just fine. e.g. Simmons, Tasco, etc.
I prefer low powered scopes. Keep in mind, at 5X a deer 200 yards away would appear to be only 40 yards from you. An easy open sight shot. How much do you need?
Go for a 1.5X5 or 2X7 power. I just leave them set at the lowest power. Easier to pick up your target and better light gathering. And, if they are moving, rots of ruck keeping on target at 9X or 12X. No problem with 2X.
