Re: Nightforce problems.???
I guess what I was looking at was the 8.5-25x50mm LR Leupold vs the 5.5-22x56mm NXS. The numbers are listed at 3.6-4.4" eye relief for the LR, and a constant 3.74" for the NXS. That almost one inch change in eye relief seems like about three when I was having to crawl the stock for a decent sight picture.
I know kind of what you mean w/ the image on the Nightforce. It seemed like it was either there, or it wasn't. The LR was more forgiving, but I found myself spending a lot of time trying to make sure there wasn't a bit more 'shadow' on one side than on the other.
Hopefully tax time will provide a small windfall, enough to help put a NXS on my varmint rifle. The 1/8MOA clicks on the Sightron are ok, but the 7.5MOA/revolution thing is bugging me a *lot*.
