Re: What NF scope for 600 yards and under?

The compact's lack of parallax adjustment would be the deciding factor for me. If you are an experienced shooter and understand the need for a consistent cheek weld I would go with the compact.

I hear they are coming out with a new compact with a parallax adjustment, they may already be available. I am going to be doing a lot of scope swapping soon.

The 2.5-10x42 has parallax so that isn't an issue. It also has the upgraded illumination which is fantastic. This power level is more than enough for any big game hunting to 1/2 a mile. The reduced weight and better features compared to the 3-15 would make up my mind.

And I would agree, if you can afford it go with NF. No other scope at that price point has the ruggedness and durability reputation. That's a big deal in my mind!
