This weekend I had the pleasure of using my new Kowa TSN-821A with 27X Long Eye Relief at the Virginia Sport Shooting Association Advanced High Power Rifle clinic.

I could clearly see .223 holes in the black on an overcast door at 200, with ease! Best scope I have ever used. Next weekend will will be shooting 300 and 600 and a 50 shot National Match course, I will let you know how it works. But right now I am thinking that this is one of the best uses on could make of $600. This is especially if you already have a couple of good rifles!

Ni ellegimit carborundum esse!

Yours In Marksmanship

In the 70's Kowa was known for superb camera optics especially in the medium format film area. I'm not surprised you are pleased with the optics.

I had a cheapie Tasco 60X. Recently came into posession of a Burris 45X. The Burris is much more helpful in spotting.

It would appear that magnification is easy (and cheap). Resolution is where the money and quality is.
Caveat Emptor.
