Re: .338 lapua mag
I think it depends on the kind of shooting you plan on doing. Both will work. The 8x32 is more of a bench rest target style scope with an objective mounted parallax adjustment, and different style turrets with 1/8 min. clicks. I have both and prefer the NXS 5.5x22 with the side parallax, and 1/4 min turrets, 20 MOA per revolution. I have not found the difference in magnification an issue at the longer ranges. Reticule choice is more of a factor.
