Re: Nightforce vs ???
Swarovski scopes are really good hunting scopes. They have some of the best glass out there. However, they do not have the same functionality as a nightforce. Nightforce has good glass, not the best but good. I am speaking of the nxs model. They have great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. The swaro may be able to get you to hit at long distances but it will lose its zero or it will not return to zero when you need it. If you will only hunt with it, meaning you will shoot little and not mess too much around with the turrets, then the swaro may be a good option. However, if you will constantly shoot paper and targets at long distances then the nightforce may be it for you.
I have a swaro and I do love it, but I only hunt with it at less than 500 yards.
