Re: Nightforce FFP scope

I have been playing with the Nightforce FFP 3.5-15x50mm w/ the MLR and the MIL-DOT. I really like the MIL DOT in the NF NXS FFP scope. The MLR 1/2mil lines are almost too small, but it is nice to have a 1/2mil reference point. What very mil Reticle you get you will love this scope.

Re: Nightforce FFP scope

Some one asked me about the GLASS in the Nightforce NXS FFP Scope. I would say this glass is some of the best on the market also. I have compared the glass S&B, Premier Reticles, and USO. I feel most shooters would be hard pressed to say NF Glass is not as good as the others. Most guys that I had look through the NF NXS FFP, S&B, Premier, and the USO all set at 12x they said they could not notice a difference.

I really like the Nightforce Glass

In my view it's a non issue. At 200 yds or greater I set my 5.5x22x50 at 22 power. Inside that range, ranging and holdover isn't an issue.

But hey, that's just me...

I agree to some degree.

For a lot of hunting situation 22x will do the job for holdover shots but the problems is when you have multiple engagements at different location 22x can make it hard to locate multiple targets fast enough even at 400yds. So when time is an issue it is nice to be able to back down the magnification for faster target acquisition.
