I would like to have great glass in my spotting scope, but I would like to have mils in it as well. It seems like unless I want to spring the 5K for the tactical zeiss then I have to choose one or the other. (Correct me it I am wrong)

So, for field use would you use the bushnell so you can have the mils in it, or the Kowa for the glass?

Re: Bushnell or Kowa?

Two very different scopes the bushnell will be a more compact field scope.Glass is reported to be on par with leupold mk4s.The Kowa is a true spotting scope it is quite large not something you want to pack.The glass on Kowas depending on the model can be quite fantastic.

Thought about the USO spotter? If your getting a USO scope, it'd be nice to be able to have the same reticle as your scope has.
