My new rig and I need some more info please

Remington 700 SPS dm .308
Zeiss Conquest 3-9 x 40 Rapid Z600
Burris ZEE rings
Rock Mount bipod

I need a spotting scope. I am looking at the Vortex Nomad 20-60 x 60 or the Leupold Ventana 15-45 x 60 am I on the right track with these choices has anyone used them? I am mostly punching paper 100-400 yds. will try hunting next season. My price range is maxing out taxes in $500. Canadian prices.

    I just got the nomad a couple a weeks ago and love it. I haven't had the chance to try it out other than at 240yrds. You can see fine detail on 40x very good. I am looking to try it out to 1000 yards very soon.

    On your Rock Mount bi-pod, you may want to take the two nuts off that hold the legs on and add a drop of lok tite.

    If you're on a budget don't be shy about making use of the classifieds here at LRH, or even shopping on Ebay.

    I've seen some very nice spotting scopes sell both places at very reasonable prices.

    Nice looking rig BTW. Hope it shoots well for you.
