For $800.00 you can find a realy good scope with good reticle,objective lens size(40 or 50mm)
and a 30mm tube with side focus and a mil dot retical.
I like the Leupold's but there are others in that price range.
The 24 mm objective is not very good for gathering light especially at longer distance.
I know you said ether the NF or the Elite but this is just my opinion and a 14x to 20x
on the top end would be better for targets.
