Re: night force scopes; bringing it back to zero

Cam,
I believe they will be a bit more than that price, but I also like them enough to pay whatever since they absolutely fix the problem. Great suggestion regarding the Pathfinders I have them on all my scopes, they are the best way to ensure your drop data is where you need it. Simple and they work. Put an ACI, Pathfinder and a level on the scope, gets pretty busy.

Re: night force scopes; bringing it back to zero

Ian

Yeah, Nightforce just had a first of year INCREASE [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Any way I don't have a pathfinder but would like one!!
Took the ACI off!! (have a new rangefinder)
I've got the level but question its usefulness!!

I know, everybody jump on the bandwagon and tell me how good they are!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I have a very good eye for plumb-straight-level if the cross hair is lined up with the bore, I refer to gut-fill on the crosshair vs looking at the level, one less thing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Was out to 2K shooting rocks and never looked at the level once!!! So for me the level might be the next thing to go, and the pathfinder will be tryed.

New shooter
Sounds like a lot of gun and $$$$$ for a "NEW SHOOTER" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Hope you have lots of fun with it.
Back to the reticle and scope
the NRP1 is like the NRP2 but is 1MOA instead of 2MOA spacing. (twice as many lines in the same space to confuse you)(Why count by one?) J/K [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
To plan out the reticle you need to know your bullet speed and drop info or BC to imput to the computer. then see what works best for you!! some zero at 300 some at 400 you could zero at 1000 if thats what works for ya!! you better get some MOA built into the base if you plan to go long. because scope adjustment disappears fast when you stetch out.

Cam,
Suggest you buy a Pathfinder, then you will wonder why you did not get one a long time ago [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

SS7mm,

What mount are you using for your ACI?

This is a great discussion
