Re: i went and did it....SWARO 15x56 SLC\'s....
Congrats on such a fine optical tool. You will never regret spending that kind of $$ on good optics.
Last year I opted for the 10x42 EL's instead of the 15's. Not because I think they are better, I just had to get one first and the other in a couple of years. I have used the 15's on a tripod and have been very impressed with them for over 1000 yard spotting. For up to and under 1000 yards, I will use the EL's every time. Its not that 1 is better than the other, they are awesome in their own way in varying circumstances. I spend about 10 days every year in Arizona hunting coues whitetails and quite often my cousins 15's come in quite handy for locating a distant buck.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
