Never owned a NF Beast, but have the NF F-1 ATACR. Both are very good, but I like my Vortex Gen ll's a bit better! The EBR2C reticle is hard to beat!

I would have to agree on the reticle. I for one, decided against the F1 ATACR because of the odd/weird MILR reticle. I am sure NF is losing sales because of the lack of reticle choices. Sure, one could get used to it and learn to appreciate it, but why?

I love the EBR2C, which on this level of optic choices, plays a huge role in the decision process. Hope you're reading this NF

The reticle is one feature that I really like on my NF's.... Then again, they are MOAR.

Yep. I think I'm starting to lean toward the Vortex. After reading this article and what you guys have said it sounds like a "BEAST"!!

Re: BEAST vs Vortex Razor HD Gen ll

Hard to go wrong with either. I've used the Vortex 4.5-27 on a 338 Lapua and it was a very nice scope. I opted for the ATACR, because there were a few things that I personally liked better about it. That being said, I opted for the Vortex GII in 1-6x24 over the NF 1-4 for my timber gun because there were a few things I liked better about it. If you have the option to look at the scopes in person it would really benefit you. If that's not an option I'd compare the reticle choices in the scopes and choose the one you like best.
