Just ordered the 5.5~22x56 , NP-R1 with HS and ZS. It will be shipped today.
Scott E. Thanks for your input and I agree there is a gap for this type of scope. I also feel for the ELR shooter Nightforce has it covered, or at least as close as I can get to what I need. I think as this type of shooting group grows, and it is growing, we will see the market demand new options. I have done this long enough to feel very comfortable about what I need to be reasonably successful past 2000 yards.
So here is my dream scope just in case anyone a NF is listening.
*Top end power of 28X
*Elevation of 125 MOA, more would be great but I want to be reasonable and 25 more moa would get us to 3000 yrds in most cases.
*Thin subtensions like the NP-R1 or maybe even a slight bit thinner. One MOA reticle suntensions. Possibly a floating crosshair or dot but keep em fine. Maybe use the NP-R1 .070 and thin it down slightly for the floating aiming point.
*Second focal plane. I want the target to grow in size as I crank it up, not the reticle. I will do all my spotting on full power so the BS about the reticle is in tune at all power settings is worthless to me. Yes it takes good conditions but so does ELR so let go for the best senerio. Plus if I want to reduce power setting to double the amount of MOA hold over in the reticle I have that option.
*Zero Stop and the HS turret that is in 10's. Like the 20 MOA turret , it is fine with me.
Thanks to all that contributed here. It helped me and I did learn about what is out there.
