Hey 300wsm, I have a Redhead Epic spotting scope that I got from Bass Pro Shops a couple of years ago. It is the 20-60x60 model and it came with a tripod, window mount and hard/soft case. Back then, It was $199.99 but I believe the price is now $249.99. In my opinion, this is still worth every penny. I've used it at the ranges and I easily see .223 holes at 400yds. Even on it's highest setting of 60 power, you can still see objects clearly. I also have a Swarovski STS scope that costs $1400. The only difference between the two is that my Swarovski is quite a bit brighter in low light conditions but it has an 80mm objective lens. This is my hunting scope that I carry in the field when I hunt areas that are unknown to me, otherwise I just use my Leica bino's. I'd go to a Bass Pro shops near you if you can and try the Redhead Epic's out. Good Luck!!!
