Re: Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50..opinions and experiences sought
Nice scope! Have fun with it! That said, NF isn't my choice anymore for a hunting rig. They are nice and optically as well as functionality they do all they should for the price.
I have gone to lighter scopes because when I plan on having a certain weight finished set-up (say 10lbs), a 2# scope means I have 8# to build the rifle with. With a 1# scope, I can have a 9# rifle. I like the weight as close to center as possible so I like that extra pound in the barrel & stock instead of in the optic and farther away from the rifle core.
Not dissing your purchase, you will love it. Just my different approach.
