Nightforce vs Leupold

Ok I'm looking into building a 30-378 and got pretty much everything figured out besides the scope I'm going between the nightforce Nxs 5.5-22x50 or the Leupold mark 4 6.5-20x50 what does everyone think....

Re: Nightforce vs Leupold

I have a few of them both and they are both good. In my opinion, the nightforce is by far the better scope, and is what I have on all my built guns. If u decide u want a mark 4, let me know I have one that is nearly brand new that I would sale. Dont get me wrong, I like them alot, I just dont think they are as good. They sure cost less though, and I cant afford nightforce on all my stuff so I have been using the mark 4's on my factory guns that are tack drivers. My favorite feature is the zero stop.

Buy 1 Nightforce and you are hooked!
I would highly recommend the NF, you will not be sorry.

Nightforce. They're for sure a step above Leupolds.

I have no use for FFP scopes since I'm not a run-n-gun tactical shooter and I would not use one to take an animal at long range..... but that's me.
