Anybody got a recommendation on spotting scopes/kits for hopefully not alot more than 5 Franklins?

I am currently leaning towards Leupold or Nikon, but have an open mind as I don't have tremendous experience with this particular type of optic.

Thanks.

All the scope you will probably ever need.

Works great for me. Of course I don't shoot much over 600 yards.

I bought the Nikon 20-60X80 from Adorama.com for $434. I was going to write a review of this scope but I got called away urgently and did not have time to do that. I did take it to the range this past Saturday, and I got to play with it quite a bit. I am extremely pleased with my acquisition.

I did use it at the HP match the week before for 200,300 and 600 yards and it worked great.

I intend to get the other eyepieces as soon as I get a chance.

I've heard a lot of bad things about those Winny scopes, of course that's just hearsay.

You have no problem seeing .223 holes at 2-300 yards?

I normally use it at 100 yrds and have no problems seeing the .223 holes. At 1000 yrds it is supposed to be like being 18 ft away. I don't know if it actually performs that well or not. I would say not. For the money...you can't beat it. I will say it's very clear at 100 yrds. I've used it before at 600 yards but I wasn't using a .223. I could see the holes just fine at that range. Try it and see. If you don't like it...throw it back on eBay and make 90% of your money back. I find no reason to spend $500 on a spotting scope. Hope that helps.
