Re: Which scope for my build?
as you go up higher power NF, you lose some adjustment range, not sure how much of a concern that is for you. just saying, also, make sure to look through any scope you decide on, I have been looking at a lot of scopes lately, and everyone's eyes are different.
I have some threads describing what I saw, but basically, optically, I did not see the big deal what so ever about NF NXS, yes built very well, but that was about it, even the clicks on the scopes I played with were mushy and not as definitive or loud as many other scopes I have played with. hensoldt or zeiss you will be getting some of the best optics, I think for anyone's eyes. I say that because Zeiss out of all the scopes I looked through was the only one that consistently was probably better and more distinguishable.
trijicon 5-20 is very nice, and bright, but the adjustment range is not very great.
others have said sightron was very good, I think they are good for the money, and I have not gotten a chance to look through an SIII, but did look through a SII big sky, and compared to a vx-3 for my eyes there was no comparison, the vx-3 was better in every regard. I hope the SIII is better though, as the 8-32 would work nicely for me.
it all depends what your budget is, nightforce will not be discounted, other scopes can be depending where you buy. I do not have any experience with S&B or March or USO or Premier or IOR for that matter, I hear good and bad about IOR, also warranty can be a pain with them having to go back to Europe for major problems.
I have read good things about the vortex razor, and looked through a viper, and for the price was extremely impressed.
