I would swap for the npr1 if your dealer will do it. Costs 150 or so for Nightforce to swap them. I'm willing to bet your dealer will swap for you. Sounds like you'd better take care of that woman!

Yes, they told her at the dealer they would swap for the 5.5-22X50 with the npr1 for no charge. Am I better off keeping the 56mm and just sending it in for a reticle swap and zero stops? Grit - yes she takes great care of me!

I guess that depends on how much you want to spend. I believe the zero stop will cost about $200 or so, and when you add it all up with the shipping, you're probably looking at $400 plus. Shawn seems to put a high emphasis on a zero stop and he would probably have a good reason for it. I think if you work up more than one load for your rig it becomes a little less practicle.

I also prefer the 50mm to the 56mm objective just because it's a little more streamline on an already very large scope and my outfit is a carry rifle. The FOV is the same for both.

You've got one good gal there who would buy you a NF. You best keep her well stocked with flowers and dont be predictable. When she's happy, you're happy.
