Spotting scope with reticles

What kind of spotting scope with reticals are you guys using for beyond 2000 yards? I have a 15x45x60 bushnell with mil-dots. My spotter keeps telling me he is have problems seeing impact on rocks with 338 lapua at 2005 yards. This usually happens when the rocks are wet. I dont want to have to wait to spring to shoot so i thought about a 20x60x80 spotting scope with reticles. Any suggestions? What brand should i buy?

Re: Spotting scope with reticles

I love the angled vortex razor hd 20-60x85 with the set 30 x moa reticle crystal clear and by far the best spotting scope I have had my hands on. The moa reticle makes it super easy to measure both the target rock and the impacts. I like it better than the swaros I have used seems eye alignment is better...and the warranty should you ever need it rocks.

I have seen those for sale for around 900 and with the eye piece for 225> so for 1150 or so i could get the vortex. I would like a little more power than 30x though.

If you want more power might have to go Ziess and spend the big bucks.I thought I heard one of the eyepices interchange into another spotter. Like a vortex in certain swaro. Ziess is 20-60x72

That would be the Viper model not the Razor.

Re: Spotting scope with reticles

My bad, you are correct. Vortex 20x60x80 Viper HD is 899. So i could buy a scope body and put a swaro eye peice on it? Could some one tell me more about this? I am not opposed to spending 1000 to 3000 dollars on spotting scope with reticles. buy once cry once! I just want to get the right one so when my 375 cheytec gets built i can take advatage of the 1200 to 4000 yards of rocks i have to shoot at> I have thought about a leupold 20 x60x80 spotting scope. Anyone have one or have any advise on them? Or should i get a scope body and a swaro eye peice? What eye peices interchange with what scope bodies? thanks for all the help guys!
