Ive got the ugly green plastic one from creedmore. It is surprisingly great for the money. Usually if I can't see bullet holes at 200, or it's too cool for me to pick up mirage the guys with the high end scopes can't either. I've had a few guys compare mine to their high end scope side by side and say "how much did you say that cost?"

I and several of my friends have Celestrons. great scope for the money. on the right day I can see 223 holes at 300, bad day nothing will work. Amazon has the best deal, its $20 less than I pay 5 years ago. you'll be happy with it, IMO, better than the Konus.

I searched for and found a early Nikon field scope as well as an early Bosh & Lomb, both 60mm, Nikon with interchangable eye pieces, the wide angle 30 power is the best, the B&L has a 20-45 zoom. Both very good scopes for little money.

I like my 15-45x65 Konuspot. I've owned it for 3yrs. and it has served me well. you can see .22 caliber hits at 200yds. in all but the worst conditions, and .30 caliber out to 500. Besides, it's fun to call shots for the guy next to you when his $2000.00 scope won't pick up the hits!

Youdontgetsomething for nothing. Does Leupold make a 90 degree scope yet? I had a friend with one and it was great but not for matches. If had to do it over again I'd buy the best Kowa made not being able to see holes looses you points
