Okay, after my woeful range test of my Ncstar scoped 30.06 mauser I'm sceptical about opticals especially from this company. Soo... on to the subject of spotting scopes. There are hundreds of types to choose from in all kinds of price ranges. Anyone here have a favorite manufacturer? Looking for something up to near 60x for up to 150 bucks. I"m not looking for Zeiss quality for that kind of money. Just something reliable with good glass and durability. My mauser project will receive a "gooder" scope in the future. The rifle is intended as a woods/scout deer rifle. The weapon itself was cheap to purchase so silly me... I used a solid mount from B Square but a scope that although was advertised as a durable pistol scope didn't measure up. Now I know better.
