    Sorry. BT is the Swarovski ballistic turret. It is a customizable elevation turret. Check out:

    My NF has the MOAR reticle (which I like). I've heard good things about the velocity, but haven't shot through one.

    Probably should not post this (beacuae I'll get lauged at) but, for years I had a Tasco and I thought it was a good scope but I could see better then.

    Vortex Viper - best bang for your buck. For $50 more, you can add the HS/LR line, than gives you .50 moa clicks vs .25 for 24 moa per rotation, and exposed Zero Stop turrets. The adjustments are very repeatable and have a solid feel to them. Glass is good not great, but spend your money on clearer glass for you bino's/spotter. A little heavy, but solid construction in 30mm. As a LR scope, the Dead Hold BDC reticle is my favorite and a huge plus in this price range with it's 2moa hash marks on horizontal reticle. The BDC drop lines are for a standard LR type round ~(.500bc @ 3000fps) and good back up to 600 yds, but for true LR shooting you will want to dial anyway, so I don't really use it for my STW. I think this is the best value hands down for a "hunting" LR scope, unless you are trying to shoot a mile.

    Zeiss Conquest - Best glass for your buck. For a BDC reticle, their Z600-Z800 line is great with wind hold-off's, which is the same as the Velocity line from NF. A little more expensive than Vortex and no windage marks on reticle when "dialing".

    I don't use Nightforce scopes, but someday will, but for now I think for hunting applications to 1000 yds, the NF line will do all you want.

    Sightron SIII 8-32x 56mm with MOA reticle.

    I hear a lot of people say Vortex is the best bang for the buck, well I think Sightron SIII and SII Big Sky are the "best bang for the buck" when buying a scope for under $1000.
