Swarovski has scope manufacturing capabilities in the US. I'm sure a multi-billion dollar company has realized the position of the euro.
I'd go with the Swaro in the 5-25 with either the BRH or BT model with the 4W reticle. The velocity reticle is great......however make sure you run the velocity reticle calculator for any load you might use to make sure the reticle doesn't change. Because the velocity reticle is based on velocity, if you change velocity or atmospheric conditions it might change the type of reticle you need. Just do your homework on the back end is all i'm saying.
Is weight a factor? The NF as you know is a beast of a scope where as the swaro is on the lighter side.
