    I bought a redfield spotting scope 20x60 I was sighting in my .223 at 100 yards you could see the holes but it was NOT clear! DIM I change it for a NIKON
    anyone use these scopes?.

    I use a Konus 20-60x80 spotting scope. For around $200 it's hard to beat.

    I use a Bushnell Spacemaster. Not a bad spotter for 100 yds.

    You still need to focus it using the back ring.

    I have two Nikon RAII spotting scopes. My first was a 20x60 straight view and my second a 15-45x60 angle view.

    Both are bright and clear. The 20x is good out to 100 yards and the straight tube fine for sitting at a table. I find the angle view better when standing or for position shooting. The 15 to 45 power is a better way to go if you shoot over 100 yards.

    I haven't used anything Redfield in years and really don't remember much about them other than they used to be the top dog 40+ years ago, but like everything else technology has improved.

    Unless you want to spend a lot of money on a Kowa, its gonna be hard to see bullet holes beyond 200 yards. At 600 yards, I use mine primarily for watching mirage.
