Joanie put that together. Maybe a new zoom eyepiece for your Kowa? 20-60x? The 82mm objective should be more than enough.

I'll second what gary says. Sounds like you need more magnification. A new zoom eyepiece is the most logical solution singer you already have a great scope. In fact, there is nothing in the $300 class that would come close to a Kowa. If it is a new Kowa 82SV, go for the 20-60 zoom. If it is the older 821, I'd check Ebay for a used eyepiece 820 series eyepiece. If that fails and you want another scope, try the Alpen 788 or the Bushnell Ultra Legend HD, though these are $400 class scopes. I have had some customers report that the Clestron Ultima 80 is up to the job at 200 yards, but just barely.
Another thing I would try, if you are not currently using them, are one of the new splatter type targets, such as the Dirty Bird, Shoot N C and so on. This could be the cheapest solution of all.
