Spotting scope

I am looking for a spotting scope mainly to be used with .30 calibers. i am looking to spend about 800 US dollars on it including a tripod if possible one of those where the spotting scope slides up and down the bar.
Some told me to look at Kowa, others at Leupold, so i would like suggestions. is a 20-60x mag real ideal? i live in a hot country and mirage is very prominent all year round so at such high mags i would only see waves. what is a reasonable magnification to have on a spotting scope, something that you will actually use?
if youre shooting early morning, when mirage is not yet so strong, how far can you see bullet holes in wood or paper?
thanks
