Re: 20-60X-80mm Spotting Scopes
Goddamn it! Between the cases just made by Vince and Len for the respective scopes in question, I've gone from almost having made up my mind about this matter to being right back at square one!
Vince, sparing myself a few ounces isn't really a concern for me in a matter such as this. Everything else you've said, however, speaks directly to what is. Your evaluation of the Pentax is very compelling.
But Len, what you have to say about the Swarovski HDs is no less exciting. Specifically, if the Swarovski 65mm HD model allows one to see holes punched by calibre .284 projectiles 900 yards out, then I would think that the 80mm HD model would allow one to see holes punched by calibre .308 projectiles up to or slightly beyond 1100 yards out.
Vince, how far out can you see the holes made by your .300 RUM with the subject Pentax scope?

If you can see it, then you can hit it!
