Re: Opinions on Nightforce
I recently set up a new rifle and went through the process deciding on whether to go for the NXS in 5.5-22 or 3.5-15. I ended up going with the 5.5x22 G7 which has a 600 velocity Reticle. My deciding factors were that there was no difference in size and weight between the two. The size and weight of the Nightforce is the only thing I don't like about the scope. I rarely, if ever use a power setting below 6x for my hunting. Why not take the extra power if there is no trade off(except price). With the velocity Reticle, my power setting for my load requires a power setting of 9.5x, which I like. You don't use the max power setting for the VR. I prefer using turret adjustments and higher power for +500 yards. This is a very versatile scope IMHO.
