NightForce right on!

I've got the NightForce 5.5x22x56MM scope with the NP-R1 reticule and this afternoon I checked it on a 22" diameter steel plate from 700 yards. It has 1MOA vertical hash lines and 2 MOA on the windage bar. When I set it up into a dead rest jig....I got a reading on vertical displacement of 3 MOA; this is at 22X. I'd say it is right on the money!!

Haha...I think that he is just happy that he had spent all that money and he got what he paid for. I just bought one myself but havn't gotten it yet. I would be more than pissed if I got it and it didn't work right after spending all of that money.

Great scopes that work like they are supposed to. If they could only improve the quality of their glass. What they are using now truly leaves something to be desired.
