I moved to N.C. & the shooting range I joined does not have pits @ 200 yd. therefor I need a spotting scope to SEE the HOLES in my target @ 200 yds. I have been told a 80mm lens w/over 20x eyepiece. Will this size be too powerfull for 100 yds or less? Any particular brand sugestions? Thanks, Jim

Trainman -

 

If your primary use is going to be at the shooting range, you wouldn't need an 80mm lens.  60 or 65 mm would be more than sufficent.  Suggestions just depend on how much you want to spend...I wouldn't go less than $300-$400 in any event.  You could probably find a Leupold or Nikon in that range that would meet your needs.

Rule of thumb is that the bigger objective has better resolution.  You also want to think about the versions that say ED or APO, they have the best clarity and color.  If the guys are using 20x, then that is not too powerful for 100 yards.

 

Nikon is a my first choice.  I would also look at Minox.
