Re: best cheap spotting scope

Rotorhead and freebore ,I have the elite 80mm ED also and it compares favorably with the best. For highcountry early season hunting I like the fixed 30x eyepiece but for bullet holes the 20-60x would probably be best.

Try both in the way you will use them...

I had had (still do) a 60mm ED straight scope that I used at the range, and wanted something better.

I decided on a high end 80mm ED scope and was advised to get the angled eyepiece... I did, and hated it.

I sold it at a big loss and bought a straight eyepiece model, and it was worth the loss to get it right.

Celestron 80 can see 300 WM holes at 500 yds. Only $200

I have one and it's not near as good as Swaro, but it will do the trick at 500 yds.

Re: best cheap spotting scope

I'm like Ole Roy. I shoot at a gong painted black with a white dot in the middle. You can clearly see your impact and make adjustments as needed from the bench instead of driving down to look where you are hitting. Besides, I would'nt wont my favorite beverage of choice be gettin hot.

Instead of getting a spotting scope, getcha a N/F mounted on your rifle and shoot at a black gong.
