If anyone can do an unbiased review of the scope, it would be you!

Thanks I appreciate that. I am a true fan of the Nightforce line. I didn't order a ATACR on a whim. The 5.5~22x56 NPR1, ZS Has been my favorite scope for my long range rigs. We still own 3 of them. I will soon enough see for myself I guess.

Re: ATACR Reviews

I was in Denver this past weekend so I had my ATACR tag along..
I was very happy with the look through the glass, we scoped the mountains and there was no haze or distortion at all. I had it out on the 20th floor and we glassed all of down town, it was very easy to read building numbers and plaques at 750+ yards. All were crisp and clear, very easy to make out mortar joints at 800+ yards. I don't have any complaints with this scope at all.
My friends all have high end scope and they loved this scope also. My FBI friend made the comment that he no longer saw any reason the pay $3400 for a S&B after looking through the NF.
I guess others results will vary...?

Re: ATACR Reviews

Any other ATACR owners that have gone afield care to give your thoughts? Would really like to hears some side by side reviews with a NXS or other high end scope.

Re: ATACR Reviews

Broz,

I am no optical expert but I was able to compare the ATACR are to a Premier a couple days ago. the store also had 30 mm NXS. I was able to compare all 3 together. I ran them through their full range of magnification from 40 yards to about 250 YDS. I was very impressed with the ATACR. it was every bit as crisp as the Premier. and I consider Premier to be the top of all Tac scopes. I had no problem focusing up close as others have mentioned. Overall I was extremely impressed and would not hesitate to buy one.

as a side note I found the scope at 1shot gear in Denver. it's a great new shop they carry Sitka and Kenetrek also
let me know if you have any other questions
