Nikon EDG scope review
I tried out the new Nikon edg spotting scope and I have to say I’m very impressed. I got my hands on the new 85mm scopes with 20x60 eye peace in the straight configuration, and it’s worked very well. I was able to spot 17hmr bullet holes out to 200 yards easily, and 308 out to 500 but I’m sure you would be able to see them much farther. I was able to use this scope to effectively spot all my groups and my shooting buddies with no problems. We only had about a 500 yard range to work with, but like I said, I think this scope would be effective at greater distances. This scope also worked really well in low light conditions due to the 85mm objective and the great new glass Nikon has in this scope. I was about to see my 500 yard target well after dusk with good clarity. The next day I went back and was able to see differences in small animals at between 350 and 400 yard markers. I could tell what types of birds were and different features, and also small differences in the squirrels down range. The scope also offers a good field of view 115 feet at 1000 yards on 20x and 58 feet at 60, this is important because not only can you see detail at distance but also field of view to properly acquire the target. The eye relief was also comfortable on this scope from 18.4mm on 20x to 16.5mm on 60x, it’s easy to get comfortable with this scope. Combine all this with a great 25 year no fault warranty, accessories that come standard with the scope, such as a functional stay on scope case, flip down covers, and the promotion that also gives you a free Nikon d3000 camera makes this a deal to be had on these new scopes. If your in the market for a good scope don’t pass up this scope, not only is it a great scope, but also a great deal.
let me know if you guys have any questions
