Re: nightforce comparison?
I had the NF2.5x10 Compact on my 270WSM Model 70 Sporter that was used for tighter terrain deer hunting ,and more carry time than my LR rigs equipped with the bigger NSX 5.5x22. I think the NXS is too heavy and bulky for a Sporter weight rifle. I really liked the rifle's balance using the compact, and found that the light gathering and clarity was excellent. Mine was equipped with the 600 yard velocity reticle. The reticle had perfect thickness, was dead on for my load, so I didn't bother using the turrets much for longer shots under 500 yards.
