Sorry I am slow to respond. My daughter is visiting from Louisiana and I have been with her and the baby as much as I can.
There are many things to think about besides pricing, such as: the usage, magnification, prism system, rolls up/twist down caps, coating...etc.
Off the top of my head I am thinking (yes, I do this occasionally) that there are a few that would work well. Give me a call sometime and we can go over various questions. I can also send you a catalog with all the specs. The ones that come to mind that would fit into your pricing are:
*Legend 134028, 8x42: Best $$ I found at Optics Planet: $249.00 (A little more than what you wanted to spend)
*Trophy 238042, 8x42: Approx: $115.00 (This is what I use)
*Trophy 230142, 10x42, (You will need a steady hand when you go 10 or above on magnification) Approx: $127.00, Oh I do have a pair of 10x42s Bausch and Lomb?s, but... I save them for the drag strip. :yes:
These all have Bak 4 roof prisms, twist up caps, waterproof and fully multi coated optics. For specifics such as FOV, eye relief, weight, etc... Give me a call.
