NightForce Rifle scopes

How good is a NightForce Rifle scope? I am looking to rescope my Rem Sendaro 300 UltraMag.I am thinking this scope might be the one. Dose anyone have this combo? And do thay like the setup. I want to target shoot to 1000 to 1500 yrds. The loupold 3.5x10x50VXIII served its purpose,out to 300. This rifle has put down some nice deer here in NW FL but its time to move up the food chain I am also looking to send this rifle to Harts for a tune up. Any feed back would be thankfull. Bill Maylor.

Nightforce scope are excellent IMHO, I may prejudice since I own 5 of them. Very repeatable turrets and they adjust in true MOA..

Nightforce scopes are very good quality, repeatable in adjustments and have a large selection of powers and reticles. They are also large and heavy. I have three and prefer them over any of my Leupold or Burris scopes. Also have one on a 300 RUM, works for me.

i was looking to rescope my 300wm sendero awhile back and did a lot of searching on this forum and on my own. i ended up with a 5-22x50 with a NR-R1 reticle and haven't looked back. you actually ask your self the question why did you wait that long. Its a great scope with a lot of great features over and above many of the others. you'll enjoy it.

Night Force Rifle Scopes

Thanks fo the info.I think the 5.5x22x56 will be the one for me, and your right I dont know why I waited so long. This rifle was one of the first year makes. I put the Leoupold on it thinking I would never shoot fauther then 300 yards:confused:. I have been shooting my Roy 257 with a Burris BlackDimmond 4x16x50, and let me tell ya thats one fine shooting Deer rifle. The 257 will not do what the 300RUM will I am a new member and have not found my way around this sight yeat, so please bear with my replies. Thank you Bill Maylor.

I have had my NF 5.5x22x50 for the past year. I did not have the opportunity to spend much time behind the glass til recently. Last week I had my 300WM with NF and 204 with Leupy 6.5x20x40 VXIII on the same bench. After switching back and forth working loads between rifles I believe NF is superior optically.
