Nikon Tactical 4x16x50

Does anyone know the total elevation and windage adjustment range for the Nikon Tactical 4x16x50. I did a search and found out the 2.5x10 has just over 100in. but can't find any info on the 4x16.
Thanks,
Wayne

    The one that I got had 62 elevation and 68 windage. Understand that 65 is what they are calling it.
    Great scope - have been shooting the prototypes for 1 1/2 years, perfect performance.

    Wayne,
    I just looked at their catalog and it says 50 moa. I will have one in a couple of days and will do an actual count and post it. The 65 moa was supposed to be a pre-production sample that was a final model.

    Ian,
    Thanks again. I would like to find a scope that has at least 70-80in. of adjustment as it's going on a Sako without a tapered base. I would like to be able to reach 1500yds. I hope I don't have to end up tring to find the cash for a NXS!

    Hi Wayne-

    The Leupold LR series has ~65-75 moa of adjustment depending upon the model chosen. They're cheaper than the NXS as well.

    Switchbarrel,
    Thanks for the advice but I already have 3 of them and was looking for something different if possible. I would like to see if I can find something with maybe 100in of adjustment, though I might just have to go buy another Leupold LR. I was looking at a Burris BD 3x12x50 mildot, it has 100in but I'm not sure if it's enough power.
