Looking for advice on a good scope under 200 bucks to mount on a marlin 45-70. Only needs to be good for 300 yards. I know I need 4 inches of eye relief or more. Just looking to see if any one else out there has a good opinion for me thanks

I’ve found that the quality of glass you get at that price point is 1 - not ever very good. 2 - not likely to stand up to the recoil of a 45-70 very long.
Spend the money instead on a good set of ghost ring iron sights. They’re infinitely better than the notch and post that will have come on your gun. You’ll easily make good shots with some practice. A good set of ghost rings might be around the same price as a cheap scope-but it’s an infinity better investment.
