Re: What brand of scope do you prefer
This is how it breaks down for me, Nightforce is the top end and even adding another couple grand won't buy and optic that will perform at the same level for my shooting I however can not afford to go crazy with Nightforce.
My next is the Vortex, for me it's the budget Nightforce, you get good tracking and turrets, zero stop, usable amount of MOA and serviceable glass but a little touchy in the eye box, I own more Vortex than anything and they replaced all my Leopold optics!
I do mount a Sightron SIII as a more budget friendly scope that will get you 100 MOA of travel, good glass and tracking but lacks the zero stop.
Ideally I'd have a Nightforce ATACR on my long range rifles and a Nightforce 2.5x10-42 NXS on everything else.
