Spotting Scope Suggestions?

Just curious as to what you guys are using. It will be used for spotting holes on paper and chasing shots on ground hogs.

    I dont use it much for shooting but for antelope, mulies, and elk I use a swarovski 20x60x80. Iv looked through some others but I like the swarovski the best. But if your not going to use it for hunting much there are a lot cheaper alternatives that will get the job done. Good Luck!

    Tank, I use that Leupold 12x40x60 HD. It's a nice scope.

    I don't know how far you could see them Tank. I am only setup to shoot paper up to 200 yds. We do use it for spotting shots on rocks and plates past 1,000 though.

    I used USOptic spotting scope (the glass is nice and sharp) not as Swaro, but sharp enough, and I was able to see on light yellow paper bullets holes from 338edge at 800yrds on perfect condition.
    For 200yrds shooting you can use your rifle scope at 10X-20X power and is enough

    +1 on the swarovski 20x60x80, I use mine for hunting, bunching paper, and playing spotter on long range shots on ground pigs. My only suggestion is look thru the one you want to purchase in different conditions out side before you bring it home or make sure the store will let you return it.
