Well I finally got my spotting scope and tripod. I went with the new generation Vortex Razor HD 85mm angled spotting scope. I’d like to thank BallistcXLR for turning me on to this scope. The mil reticle eye piece is not yet availble. I’ve heard summer, so fingers crossed I can get one before the RX18 Live Fire at the end of June in PA. I got it from SWFA, waited for the Tax Sale for the 15% off. The tripod is from a little outfit called Tactical Tripod. It is specifically designed for shooting prone. It is very lite, sturdy and can get the scope very low. It also packs very small.

Given that the reticles in both scopes are something I can work with, which one between the PA GL 4-16x50 RGrid2 and the Arken EP4 4-16x50 gets the nod? I understand the PA has a little more elevation available, and the Arken is a 34mm tube. I understand that the glass on both is surprisingly good for the price point of the scope, and the Arken has very good tracking. I would primarily be using this as a LR plinker out in the pasture out to 890 yards (farthest I can safely). Thanks for your time and input.
