Re: what would you do??
Sounds like you are having the rifle custom built, and that you have the money for the scope, so I'm going to assume you will have money for ammo and range fees. For that price on the NF, I'd stick with that over the IOR and Sightron, as long as you like that particular reticle for your purposes. As far as rings go, I like the Seekins Precision stuff.
