Re: Scope for Sheep Hunting Rifle
Nightforce nxs 2.5x10x 32, with NPR2 reticle. Put this on my lightweight 300wm I use for hunting where I have to pack in. Had it on 3 hunts this year, elk , muley, and goat. The goat hunt was 8 days, getting rained on most of the time! Rifle, scope wound up under water a couple of times (river crossings with fast rising current) , slipped, fell, and somersaulted coming down mountains a few times( steep,wet, nasty slopes, and yes I'm going to goat hunt again next year.) After all the abuse, scope held zero. Pricey but optics are great, IMO, after this trip I bought my second NF(3.5X15) slowly trying to sell off my Leupolds so I can buy another NF.
Forgot to add my 2.5x10 has hunter turrents and not the target turrents.
