I have a Zeiss Conquest 6.5X20 on my 22-250 right now. I am moving this scope over to a 300 WSM
for a position deer rifle for longer shots. So I am in need of a new scope for my 22-250.
This is strictly a ground hog rifle. With shots out to 800 yards. But most shooting is in the 300-500 yard range. It is a rifle that RHYS built for me with a heavy 28" Krieger 1in8 barrel. And it shoots the 75 grain A-Max bullets into tiny little groups.
I decided about 7 months ago that I wanted to buy my first NF scope. I wanted to buy a NF 8X32 BR scope. So I started saving my money. Today I put the last of the funds needed to buy the scope in the envelope. I now have $1300 saved up for my new scope.
Now the dilemma. I am pretty sure I want to stay with the power range of 8X32. However I have not completely ruled out a 6X24. But I do believe an 8X32 is what I want.
I have also been looking at the SIII Sightron in 8X32. From everything I can find out about the Sightron it is suppose to track as well as the NF scope. Not as rugged as the NF, but rugged is not a requirement for me and the way I groundhog hunt.
Is the NF worth the extra amount of money over the SIII??
What is most important to me is the ability of the scope to track perfectly. Is the Sightron capable of doing that as well as the NF BR scope??
Two of the reasons I am backing off the NF is that the adjustments are 1/8" and I would prefer 1/4". And the NF does not have as much internal adjustment as the Sightron?? What do you guys think??
I have also thought about the 8.5X25 Leupold VX-3 Long Range scope
. Supposedly the new erector in the VX-3's are suppose to be substantially better than the old VXIII's---any one have first hand experience with that statement?? And the Leupold is US made?? Thanks guys, Tom.
