Tough decision

I finally save up the funds for some quality glass for my custom 300wm. I am seeking some imput on glass options. My price range could max out to $1,700.

I don't travel other than my friends farm in Ontario, Canada. The usual problem of hunting different locations and elevation doesn't apply to me as this is the only farm I will be hunting. One could easily shoot 1,000 yards on this farm but I am limited to a max of 500 yards for practice where I live. I don't want to shoot beyond what I can practice.

Some options:
1)Swaro with TDS,
2)Nightforce, the weight wont be much of a factor, it isn't a carry rifle.
3)Have my Leupy converted to the ART retical, as that seems to be a user friendly system with software.
4)Have leupy BDC'd by their custom shop.

I have no problem hunting with one bullet or one load. My rifle shoots both Accubonds and TSX's into tiny holes.

This is a big purchase for me and would like some imput. Out of my choices listed, I keep coming back to Hollands ART system.

Thanks in advance....Wade

    I followed every post from LRH and Snipershide regarding NF optics. I understand their value. I appear to be the only one interested in the NP-1RR retical. To me, this looks like a perfect retical for my application.

    Wade, I don't remember if I have asked you before but what part of MI do you live in? I'm in Traverse City and also have private land for 1K shooting. That is if you need to stretch the legs on the NF you're going to buy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    NF all the way, you will never regret it.

    The 1RR reticle is a very nice reticle, i know a lot of people who use it. I think the reason you dont hear about it as much is because so many people are talking about the new R1 reticle.

    IF you need any info on them email me or bill bailey or call 1-800-522-3314 and ask for steve or bj

    take it easy
