What brand of scope do you prefer

Re: What brand of scope do you prefer

What I prefer and what I can afford are two TOTALLY different things.

I prefer to run all Nightforce NXS scopes, but that's not gonna happen...Ever. Unless I win the lotto or something...

Zeiss Conquest scopes for the money are about the best there is. Vortex are right up there, too.

I like Sightron SIII, very nice glass, I love the MOA reticle and it tracks well. I think it is comparable to much higher priced optics.

Re: What brand of scope do you prefer

I have had good success with Nightforece 5.5x22x and Huskemaw 5x20x scopes on my long range rifles. Both have excellent glass, are very durable, and have superb turret repeatability. I prefer the more compact size, and lighter weight of the Huskemaw on my 10 pound rigs (6.5x284)that are carried a lot and used at 1000 yards or less. I like the NF on my heavier, extended range rigs(300WM, 338Lapua). These tend to be used in more stationary hunting/shooting situations.
