Re: VX3 vs Mark 4: Reliability of reticle adjustments
All click values should be entered in ballistic software by their tested & true IPHY. It is also widely known that MOA is declared loosely with most scopes.
When you actually test scopes yourself, your feelings will be hurt I can tell already.
And maybe it's my prescription, along with my son's natural vision, but we find it's Leupold that seems more accurate in magnification, and NOT NF NXS.
My 32x NXS adjusted to reticle focus exactly matches my 25x Mk4 in power. I don't know if 8.5x25 Mk4 scopes are actually 32x, but I suspect otherwise wouldn't you?
I already stated that I tested my Mk4s and they tested perfect. That includes tracking and ability to hold zero. With that, I would say good luck(bad luck) in finding one that doesn't.
Leupold is not a fly-by-night company.
The Mk4s are lighter than NXS. They hold identical attributes in glass. Leupolds mount lower, they eypiece doesn't turn with power, and they come with Alumina flip-ups(the best in existence).
NF wins in reticle selection and actual zero stop.
You might want to research that vortex travel stop a bit (not actually a zero stop).
