bucknutz,

If you can get your hands on a nightforce, you won't be disappointed. Best $1300.00 I ever spent! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Does the SWAROVSKI take a forklift to haul around like the Nightforce? If so you won't be disappointed! Any sheep hunters out there that PACK a Nightforce on there sheep rifles? If so, "You da MAN"! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: swarovski vs. nightforce

I guess just a few of us wimps like me left that still hunt with a lite weight hunting rig. I don't pack any rifle with my two feet that weighs over 10 pds ready to hunt. I find that a lite wieight barrel is good for a first shot hit, I usually don't need good tight groups on an animal. Mostly a good bullet placed on the shoulder has so far worked for me. Ya See being a meat hunter (meaning, flesh eats better than horn or hair)I have found that I have to carry the rifle more than I get to shoot the rifle. I bet you have figured out by now that these rifles are kinda like the clubs that the boys who play cow patty pool use not everyone can be used to put it in the cup (so to speak)Thats why I favor using a pistol to replace a sword, a target rifle to punch holes in varmits and paper and a hunting rifle to put meat on the table. But hell, I just love'em all! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
