Hi,

Have a Yukon 20x50x50 spotter at 2yrs or less old, want to replace it with alittle better spotter I am looking at the following:

Leupold
15x30x50 Gold Ring

15x45x60 Windriver

Bushnell Elite
15x45x60

Burris 20x60x80 Landmark

I am trying to get a spotter that has very good eye relief and can justify holes out to 300mtrs

Any help would be greatly as I don't know much about optics and after reading/searching I came up with the one's in my $$ reach

The gold ring is nice, but may be limited trying to view bullet holes at 300 meters with just 30X. Take a look at a Kowa 600 series with a 20-60 eye piece.

I would go with the Kowa. The Leupold spotter just doesn't compare, not like there scope..

 

   Kowa

 

   Leupold
