I gotta tell ya after using several brands(nightforce,leupold,S&B) I don't really see what every body on this forums and million others see in the nightforce. Yeah it's bombproof. I think the side focus is really nice fealing and firm but what I have yet to see is almost 2k worth of scope. If it wasn't for the recent price hike on the S&B I wouldn't even consider a nightforce. I don't like the fine reticules as they are hard to see in low light. Don't get me wrong the nighforce is a real piece of work but to compared to a S&b it's like a vx3.

Linksmechanic, I like the the fine reticle, since it does not cover up much of the intended target at long range. Even with my astigmatism in my shooting eye, I have not experienced a problem seeing the reticle and I use the NPR-2

That's the the one I was using. I just have a hard time with it and so does my hunting partner. He likes his Nxs but also dislikes the reticules. Were used to the mildot system and when it's dim out it works better for me.

Re: Meopta vs. Nightforce ??

Its been awhile with this discussion so lets bring it up. I have Meopta ZD 3-10X50 and like it. I am planning to buy longrange scope with more zoom in it snd proper repeatable turrets. Either Meopta ZD 6-24X50 or NSX . NSX is 1000€ expencier. Any difference on the lowlight conditions between the two? Here in Europe Whitetail Deer hunting is done in darkness more or less.

While I can't speak for Meopta I own two NXS's and a SHV and I would not consider anything else in a rifle scope.

I have owned both brands and NF in my opinion is better in all categories mentioned through previous post.
