I've been going back and for on this issue and need some advice. I'm having a .300wm being built right now with a 26" Broughton set up for heavy bullets, Mcmillan HTG, and a timney trigger. I want to put a Nightforce on top but can't decide between the 3.5-15 or the 5.5-22 NXS. I want to use this for everything from hunting bear over bait to long range elk and pronghorn as well as long range target. I like the higher power for the long range stuff but I'm afraid that 5.5x will be too much for bait hunting. What do you think would fit the bill better?
