Nightforce FFP scope

NEW Nightforce 3.5-150x 50mm FFP Quick Review:
Thanks to Mike Miller I was able to see the NEW Nightforce 3.5-150x 50mm FFP and the Premier Reticles Heritage 3-15x50mm Tactical FFP scopes. Here were are going to be talking abut the Nightforce FFP.

New Nightforce 3.5-15x50mm FFP:

The New Nightforce 3.5-15x50mm FFP has the same look and feel as the SFP Nightforce we all love. There is a big difference other than the New Nightforce being FFP and that is it’s made in the USA. You can see in this photo the Made in USA sticker in the front.

All of the Nightforce FFP scope will come w/ 0-Stop. You can have the Zero stop in 1/4moa (10moa per rev.), 1moa with wind 1/2moa (40moa per rev), or 1/10mil (5mils per rev). The turrets are very positive and easy to tell were you are on the turn.

Here is a photo of the Nightforce FFP Mil-Dot:

At this time you Nightforce is offering Mil-Dot and MLR reticles. The Glass is very nice, the reticle like a lot of FFP scopes feels a little thick, but over all is very nice.

Things I would like to see done down the road:
I would like to see a 20moa turret and a 10mil turret.
5.5-22x50mm
And the reticle numbered


Here it is in action.




The Nightforce 3.5-15x50mm FFP *M.A.P. (Minimum Advertised Price) $2290.00.

Over all I feel this scope is going to offer a lot for the price.

    Mike,

    You should be proud to be selected to receive the Nightforce FFP scopes!

    You've worked hard and run a great business. You are a great rep for Nightforce. You've been a big help to us, too! I appreciate it.

    That sounds like a great scope, and I can't wait to see it at SHOT.

    Look forward to your thoughts on the scope, esp. how the reticle works at high and low power.

    Take care,

    Scott

    What are the advantages of a FFP scope, I know the reticule is increased as you turn the power up, just dont know the usefulness of this function?

    The advantage of a FFP scope is that you can range at any magnification. Where as on a Second Focal Plan the reticle is calibrated to range at only one specific magnification.

    The advantage of what Longshot mentioned works not only for Milling, but also for whatever multi-dash or dot reticle you have, whether in Mils, MOA, or a ballistic reticle.
    You can use your reticle for shooting at any power knowing that the subtension (the measurement between two point or stadias is the same at any magnification).

    On typical variable power scopes in America (Second Focal Plane) you have to have the scope magnification at either the highest power or on a set power that is marked by a diamond/dot or some other mark for mil-ranging and to ensure that the distance between your dot and or lines are correct.
