Optics selection

I am old (65) and need higher powers to shoot. Mainly target shooting at 100/200 yards but looking forwards to 500 and beyond.

Currently have one AR15 in 223 Wylde that shoots 0.5 or less MOA ay 200 yards. One AR15 and two Savage bolt rifles in 6.8 SPC that also shoot  under 1 MOA. Have one Savage 10TR that shoots 0.25 or better MOA. Just purchased a DPMS AR10 in 308 that so far is shooting sub MOA.
For me to see the target well at 200 yards I need 25 power, currently have 3 scopes that cost around $200 that works well in the 115 degree heat of Las Vegas. They are 8.5-25x50 with 30mm tubes, do not have problems with heat shimmer ever.

I just can not justify a Nightforce or other $1500-3000 scope.
Looking for better optics but under $500 retail.

Millett 6-25x56 LRS-1 Tactical 35mm Riflescope with 0.1 moa clicks. Power 6-25x56 with 35 mm tube. With 140 MOA adjustment. I like this scope best, used my neighbors Millet scope, really like the fine reticle. Most places that have ratings rate this scope very high for the category.

Konus 8.5-32x52 Konuspro M-30 30mm Riflescope, interesting scope built-in Anti Canting Bubble System. I actually have zero problems with canting
