Re: Need scope recommendation

Hello Fergus!,

My suggestion.. lighten the rifle and stay with the Nightforce!

just my opinion.. I have had nightforces.. then traded/sold them for all Lupy's ( lighter ).. but now have gone back to all nightforces!.. just can't beat them.. especially in lowlight conditions...

Leupold can put the "target" adjustments on a 4.5x14 if you send it to them, they can change the reticule if you wish also.

Re: Need scope recommendation


Thanks for the comments. There is a lot of good info there and it supports some of my thinking. If Nikon made a 4.5-14 illuminated reticle scope, this decision would be a lot easier.

I do like the Leupold and can get the 4.5-14 locally at a reasonable price. I can also get the 3.5 -15 Nightforce and like a lot of their features, especially the etched reticle and I know they work well for my purposes.

I am about to restock this rifle and might wait a little longer to see how the weight and balance come together, then make a decision on the scope. I might see if I can mount my Nightforce scope on the rifle to see how it feels and even try it in the field that way.

Fergus, Burris makes a 4-16 Electro-Dot model, doesn't have the target knobs, but can be returned to Burris for retrofitting, I've got 2 4-16 Sigs. 1 with the Bal. Mil Dot and 1 with fine plex, they're very nice scopes, better than some HIGH priced Leupolds I've looked through, just ask Sakofan [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Jay
