Optical Guru? Not in the slightest...BUT...I have perfect eyesight ( thanks to the eye docs) and much better equipment that a few of you refer to and I cant see pine needles.......so who do you think your kidding.??

I know BS when I see it in print...and especially when Im downwind of a pile....so take it away bowels.!

Personally I have no idea why you wish to blow such a line of smoke at people. At least when you tell a line of BS make it reasonable.....

I bought one of the cheap Simmons spotting scopes and am not impressed. I can see more of the holes in my target at 600 with my 32x Burris rifle scope than with the 60 x Simmons. The 60x makes things very big but big does not give a qualtiy view.

Ok gawd forbid we use MATH and PHYSICS to solve a disputed point when we have OPINIONS and INTERNET B.S. but here is my best shot.
A 60x optic at 300 yds or 900 ft will make an object APPEAR 60 times closer to the eye. So something seen at 900 ft thru a 60x optic will APPEAR to be 15 ft away. Or 5 yds. If you cant see a pine needle or a nail head at 15 ft you may need vision correction.
Im not a big beleiver in any optic with a $500 price tag but according to MATH it SHOULD be POSSIBLE to resolve the objects listed at 15 ft for an average person.
A $2000 optic will just do it clearer but will still appear to be 15 ft away.
Sully ya might wanna get your swarovs or corneas checked out, 900 ft is really close for any optic.
And just so we are straight I'm in no way saying a $300 scope is the way to go...the thought of it makes my head hurt already.

Per the NRA "long range STARTS at 600".
If your gun kicks get a brake....and some muffs. Unless your a masochist then its ok. Except you won't shoot as well.
