Re: Nightforce NXS series scope power and reticle choice
I'll go thirds on the rec for 5.5-22x56. I recently went through the same process as you. I was considering 8-32x56, but decided against it because of the limited internal adjustment and the fact that the reticle is calibrated at 22x. The only time I am going to use holdover is at max range, and max range is the only time I'd want the higher magnification.
I went MOAR but I'll be the first to admit I don't have the skills to go to 2K...
