    Leupold Ventana 2, 20-60x80.

    It's a big sucker, but so am I.

    Nice purchase. I’m in the market for a new spotter and that Leupold was one of the three I narrowed it down to (leaning toward the Leupold).

    Vortex and Hawke both have offerings in the same class. In fact, the chassis for those two and Leupold are exactly identical. I expect the guts aren't terribly different, either. The Vortex is made in the P.I., the Hawke in the PRC.

    Daaaaamn...should be able to see into the future with that.

    Use a quality tripod, at distances over 500 yards having a steady (no wobble) platform is critical.
