If this is something you're going to be betting your life on or using for competition shooting, then by all means spend the money for high quality. If it's a piece of glass you're going to be using to call shots for sighting in or rough field work, cheaper works just as well, and it won't break your wallet if an accident happens and the scope gets destroyed. As a side note, I've found my cheap scope handles rough treatment pretty well, and it came with a case and table tripod at that price , though I needed neither since mine's mounted inside my pistol case.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin
Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - "No, you move." - Captain America

If you come up dry on specific suggestions here, sniper's hide has a decent forum for long range. They also have a nice exchange there where you can find group buys and the occasional deal on optics.

What power is the scope? I've got an inexpensive 15 power and it can be difficult to see the golf tees used to mark shots at 200 yards. The high power guys I talked with said 20 power at 200 yards is best. I don't know what they use at 300 or 600.

The Celestron has a good reputation. You can check out the models shooters use - Champions Choice, Champion Shooter Supply or Creedmore Sports.

I thought maybe you had left the '3' off the end of .223 and not caught it.

For me, it'd be more practical to use precision mortars at those angles - they make bigger holes too...
...people do it though.

Yes this is what I meant. I shoot my AR at 300 at a steel target. So I don't really need the spotting scope for that. But I have always thought about getting a 22-250 for coyote hunting.
