Excerpt: I have always tried to use binoculars for sighting in my rifle scopes. Checked the pattern from a distance. Never a great picture. Finally I stepped up and used this great spotting scope. Unbelievable how clear and sharp the picture is. I have even taken out into the field and set it up 400+ meters from food plots for wild game. Absolutely amazing to watch the activity from such a distance. It was like being there with the game.
