I am looking at nightforce but I can't find many scopes similar. Any suggestions ?
There are so few people these days that want a reticle subtended differently than their turrets that it makes me question if you really even know what you actually want.
Nightforce makes good, mid end optics. If you have that kind of money get yourself your favorite nxs. Hate to disappoint but you won't find a nightforce with a mil based reticle and moa turrets, so you're going to have to learn to range in moa or dial in mils one way or the other if you get into a quality optic.
Gotta ask yourself, though, if you know enough about what to look for in an optic to justify spending $1500-3K on one...there is no 'best', only best for you. And you don't know what that is.
