NF 5.5-22 vs. NF ATACR vs. Vortex Razor 5-25. Opinions please!

Ok so I can get a NF 5.5-22 HS ZS MOAR for $1750, a NF ATACR for $2000, and a Vortex Razor 5-25 for $1800. These are all fantastic scopes, and I'm sure I wouldn't be disappointed with any of them. The rifle they will be going on is a 280 AI, blueprinted 700, manner MCS T4A, Bartlein M24 5r 26" 1:9 barrel, Timney trigger, what is everyone's opinions on the choices between these scopes? Is the ATACR worth $200-250 more than the Razor? Thanks.

    Yes... The ATACR is an awesome scope if you are going long range.

    ATACR is worth the extra money.....no doubt. I didn't think it would be a big improvement over the NXS......but I was wrong. Glass quality is significantly better with the ATACR.

    I appreciate the input guys, keep it coming.

    I can get a store discount. Basically the store doesn't make any money, but I have given them so much business from other items, they do me the favor.

    I have the ATACR and love it. It has 132 MOA of adjustment which makes it awesome for extended long range. I would not want to go back to the NXS after using this.
