Re: Binoculars

Thx for the answers. We have used my bino with good luck this year.

Re: Binoculars

For about 15 years I have used a Nikon 16x50 power binocular. It serves very well for both rimfire and centerfire distances. They are not well suited to picking out .22 holes on paper. A spotting scope at 45x is better. The binocular is handy and does not need a tripod, however a tripod is nice to have. A true spotting scope shows its advantage when spotting tie breaker targets. rp

"I tried using 10x binos at the 100 yard range, but couldn't see the .30 cal and smaller holes very well.I would guess it would be much easier to see if a target was knocked over though."
True enough, though you can probably see which are over without a glass.
A spotting scope allows your spotter to tell you where the bullet hit, so you can correct, if need be.

Re: Binoculars

Same binos I use, though mine are 10X. Great glass, they're plenty good for spotting silhouette. Especially handgun matches that only go to 200M.

Re: Binoculars

When I first got started in High Power shooting I would use a pair of Binoculars. Untill I could afford a Spotting scop. There are some relitivly enexpensive spotting scopes out there. Evne a telescope can be used, just make sure it is terrestrial and not celestrial (these are upside down)

Re: Binoculars

Slightly more power and the same light gathering ability as a 7X35. Should be good if the lenses are of good quality. Don't know the brand.

Binoculars

I have a Vortex Viper HD 8x42mm bino. Will this be useable for spotting if I buy a tripod and an adaptor? I know a spottingscope would be better, but I cant afford one at the moment.
