Vortex RZR HD vs. NF NXS

I have a NXS 5.5-22 right now and just curious how the optics compare to the Vortex RZR HD. Sounds like a great scope at a decent price.

    Iīm asking myself the same question. I already bought 4 vipers, but iīm really curious to know about the razor.
    The advertisement video makes it look like a very nice scope, but letīs face it every one does that with their products.

    Hope someone around here can make a side by side field comparison.

    I've been shooting the Razor for about a year now and am more that pleased. I don't know that the glass is any better than the NF. Probably comparable. Repeatability is great on the Vortex but so is the NF. The main reason I switched to it from the NF is the fact that it is a ffp scope. That is the one feature that sets the Razor apart from the NF. After shooting it, I will never go back to a rear focal scope. Not the best for punching paper but awesome on steel and fur. NF needs a FFP 5.5-22 scope.

    The only thing i donīt like about the Vortex is that i donīt really like Illuminated reticles. I suppose itīs because i donīt think theyīre really necesary in normal hunting/shooting situations.
    I donīt know, maybe itīs because iīve never used one.

    I think he means not great for paper because the reticle might be to thick @20x being a ffp,i haven't looked through one but from experience with a p3 s&b i would say thats what Bailey means,thanks for sharing your thoughts on the razor most people who have bought one say the glass is much better than NF, but i guess sometimes it's human nature trying to justify our purchases,none the less sounds like a good scope.
