Another brother looking for advice

Postby shredder4286 on Thu May 26, 2011 7:40 pm

Howdy all,

I'm looking to purchase my first spotter- primary use will be to see .22 and .30 caliber holes out to a maximum of 300 yards. I've been looking at the redfield rampage, as it fits my comfort level for spending on this particular piece of equipment. Will it do the job? Thanks in advance for your advice and input-

Hi

A 60mm spotting scope at this price is going to be a 100-150 yard scope, though you may be able to stretch it a bit to even 200 yards on an exceptional day,but I wouldn't count on it. A better choice in this price range to get you to 200 yards is an 80mm scope, such as the Celestron Ultima 80.

300 yards ups the ante, considerably, in terms of optics needed and that also means price, of course. Try the Bushnell Elite 20x60x80 or the Celetron Regal PF80.
