I'm looking for an inexpensive spotting scope mostly for range use.  It will be used to spot hunting rifle groups...usually at 100 yards.

What is the optimum magnification for this use?  I think 20x might be too little...

I need a waterproof scope (I live in Seattle) and I'd like to have a kit with the purchase.

Budget: $200

With a budget of $200, I would suggest you look at the 25-50x50 Bushnell Trophy. It retails for $190.


If you can stretch your budget just a little bit, the 20-60x65 Bushnell Trophy can be had for about $220.


These are sold as kits with compact tripods and both hardside and softside carrying cases included.
