Re: horusvision scope
I should stay out of this… However, here are my two cents. I know of a sixty + year old man who lives in South Texas and competes at many of the Rifles Only Sniper match’s. When it comes to the speed drills; that is shooting from 100 to 1000 yards using holdovers, he uses a Night Force 3.5 – 15 X 50 with I believe the NP-R2 reticle. No one beats him.
A mil-dot reticle is a mil-dot reticle. It can look like a FLY SWATER or an uncluttered mil dot reticle… With Ballistic Targeting Software such as Night Force / Exbal, you can know your holds for your current in the field weather system, and with that information, the Voodoo is history. If your Target is at Six hundred yards, and you are shooting a .300 win mag, then hold on 3.9 mils. 700? Hold on 4.3 mils. Or, do you feel like a little more precision? If you own a NF MLR, with the turret values in .1 mils per click, click up 3 clicks and hold on mil mark 4 for the target at 700. It is Shooting made Simple.
Another thing, this same man was driving home after having a conversation with the President of NF USA. The President of NF USA told him that the NF scopes were practically indestructible. He turned to his friend in the car and said, lets find out. He pulled over, removed the NF scope from his rifle, and pulled back onto the road. Somewhere around 50 MPH (I Believe 50 mph) he tossed the NF NXS out the window. They both watched as the scope tumbled down the road, end over end behind them. When they returned home, the scope was re-mounted onto the weapon and fired. The Zero had not changed and the scope continued to work just as it was suppose to.
I heard this story from the passenger of the vehicle. He is a friend of mine.
