Better option than a 55-300mm? I need some more reach!

Ive missed out on some potentially good shots due to distance. I really want a longer lens, mainly for wildlife/nature types of shots. Im also on a tight budget so something super nice isnt a good option for me. Adorama has the 55-300mm VR lens refurbished for $209, is there anything that can compete with that? Extra length would be cool if its close price wise.
not in that price range. a 70-300 is a step up from the 55-300, but my wife has the 55-300 and its really not bad for the money. but anything beyond 300mm, in the $200 range will be a MAJOR compromise...like a manual focus mirror lens or something, which might be okay for some stuff, it'll be a severe struggle with wildlife.
