SHV 5-20x56mm

I noticed over the weekend Nightforce is now offering another scope in the SHV line. Like the title says 5-20x56mm. Looks a great scope for the money. It has all the things I was wishing the 4-14 SHV had. For one a little more magnification for longer shots. Zero set comes standard. It wasn't even offered on the other. Not sure the difference between zero stop and zero set is but it does the same thing. Anyways just thought I'd help spread the news!

SWEET!!! I have been holding out on an SHV hoping they'd hint at adding another scope or 2 to the line-up, and I'm very glad to hear they added this. I'm fixing to head to their site to check it out now!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Interesting, thank you for the info. Will have to look into this. Was hoping they would get around to a 50 instead of the 56.

Now if they'll just make one with exposed turrets instead of capped turrets. I'd pay an extra $100 for that option.

Throw the caps away and you have exposed turrets

Looked at the Nightforce sight. Does appear they do have some kind of zero stop. But the windage and elevation turrets have been reduced. Believe elevation was 80 and windage was 50. This is way more than a guy like me needs, but do wonder why?
