Re: Need Scope for STW
If you have the money for a Nightforce....Then that's what I'd go with.
What distance will you be shooting? That can help us to help you determine what magnification you want.
Personally about the best hunting scope for close to long range I can think of is the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 with the MOAR reticle. Gives you the low magnification for closer shots, and the higher magnification for further away shots.
If I had the money, I'd be running a NF NXS 8-32x56 with the MOAR, but if you plan on hunting inside of 300 yards, the 8x minimum magnification makes alot of folks uncomfortable.
Personally, I won't be shooting anything inside of 300 yards with my STW (unless I'm sighting my rifle in), so the NF NXS 8-32x56 MOAR would be what I would go with.
