Nightforce NXS or Benchrest

Waiting for 36" Krieger Barrel for a 338/416 35 Degree Improved, and its built on a BAT action, Tooley MBR Action, Jewel Trigger, 40MOA Base and Rings! Most of the shooting will be 1000 yard and 1000yd + Varmint shooting, im thinking a Nightforce 8-32x56mm BR w/NPR1 Reticle, I feel the 8-32x56mm NXS with its 1/4moa adjustments is just too much with the length that I shoot even though a lot will be hold over corrections, please give me your thoughts and ideas on this!!

    The NXS is twice the scope that tbe BR model is. THey would both work fine but the NXS is in a totally different class of scope.

    I would not be to worried about the 1/4 moa per click being to coarse of an adjustment in the NXS. Each click will be around 2.5" at 1000 yards so close to that. If you can hold well enough to tell the different between one 1/8 moa click and one 1/4 moa click at that range, your alot better shot then most of us, especially if you can tell the difference at 1000 yards and beyond.

    In most cases you will have enough error in wind estimate that it will blow you off more then this amount.

    Just my opinion, both will work, the NXS is the best scope though.

    Hmmm I am just the opposite -- for my 1k rifles the BR is preferred -- sold my NXS. I just wish S&B made a 42 power variable!!
