    Here is the deal: I can get a Swarovski ATS-65 with a 20-60 zoom for the same price as a Kowa TSN-821M with a 20-60 zoom. I'm getting a special deal on the Swarovski but NO special deal on the Kowa. The price of each is literally dollars apart. The big question is:

    Price aside, which is the better scope for matches that I might be shooting up to 1000yds?

    Thanks for your patience and advice. This is alot of money for me and I want to make the right decision.

    shoot straight,
    Keith

    I have both the 65 and the 80 HD.

    My opinion is that swarovski makes the best glass in the world.

    I'm biased because I sell Swarovski among others.If you get the Swarovski, you have the option of upgrading to BigEyz. It's a no brainer for me.
