Re: Swarovski vs Nightforce

What ever scope brand you choose try to find one with illuminated cross hairs, these make all the difference when shooting in low light conditions.

NF NXS 3.5-10x56 R2

Selling it to most anyone in the tactical or LR hunting world would be way easier in the event you decide to move WAY out in range and want a higher power scope.

The reticle will also be great for sizing up game, ranging and also integrate very well with this cartridge.

Elevation adjustment is awesome, has a lighted reticle, huge exit pupil and FOV.

No way I'd go Swaro on this one.

Re: Swarovski vs Nightforce

If you need an illuminated reticle to take the shot then it's too dark to be shooting 300m.

IMHO it is not necessary to have a fancy reticle at 300-350 yards. People are taking shots like this all the time in Scotland with a 270 and 6x42 zeroed 1.5" high and holding a bit higher as it gets longer.

56mm and illuminated reticles have their place in the woods at short range at the end of legal shooting light.

Re: Swarovski vs Nightforce

Illuminated reticle is just another option that can be helpfull, even when it's still perfectly fine to shoot, a lot of times it simply contrasts better on a darkend animal. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
