Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

800yds is asking a lot from a spotting scope that won't break the bank. The longest public ranges around here are 300yds but there are probably some private longer ones. A good spotter should be able to see the disturbance as the bullet travels through the air and follow it to impact.
