To be honest, binoculars are cheaper, will get more usage than a dedicated range scope, and for me as a shooter, much easier to use.

I don't own a spotting scope, but I do have a nice pair of binos in my range bag. I think they are Leica. I got them on close out about 6 or 8 years ago.

So much easier to take a couple of shots. Open the bolt, rest my elbows on the table or the mat and zero in with the bino's instead of getting up from prone or off the bench and continuing to squint into a new piece of glass.

But that is just me. YMMV.

What do we think about this one?
Scopes, Spotting Scopes, Waterproof Spotting Scope, By Barska at Sportsman's Guide


Looking for bang for buck here.
Thanks,
Looks like the reviews are good. I have a hard time recomending Barska, BSA and a few others. I like Nikkon, Bushnell Elite's, Leopuld, Burris,Weaver. You may get lucky. I usually dont. With me cheaper is often more expensive, But sometimes you get lucky. If you get one I would like to hear your opinion on it. Good luck.

You know JD that is actually quite clever. A pair if binos would be so mcuh handier than a separate spotting scope. Thanks

Hmmmmm , maybe I should take a look at some monoculars

Every once in awhile I have a moment.

Yep, I got a pair of binos, not great quality. So i'm still going to go the route of the
spotting scope. I think i'm going to try it. I'll put the order in tomorrow. I'll let
you all know how nice/crappy it is when it gets in. I don't know much about eye-relief
maybe I'll read some on that before using to give a better review.

Thanks!
