    Unless the BDC for your specific scope is calculated for your rifle and one chronographed load shot at one altitude and temperature, the greater the range the more the error will be. It can be as much as 4 MOA at 1000 yards.

    Before I got a G7 Rangefinder I used a BDC on my Huskemaw that was set up for the area I hunted most frequently, and my well tested handload for long range. If I changed location, and conditions for my BDC were different, I used the MOA turret that is supplied with it and Shooter. This worked very well for me.

    Greyfox. Wondering if you like it more, less, same as the NF? I have have love hate relationship with my NF. I want to get another LR scope but I am not convinced it will be a NF. Looking for options.

    I own Huskemaw and Nightforce, which have been used successfully on my long range rifles. I think the glass, durability, and turret accuracy is equal between the Huskamaws (5x20x50)and NF/NXS (5.5x22x50) scopes. I like the more compact dimensions, and lighter weight of the Huskemaws on my 6.5x284's. I also like the quick ratio parallax knob that is accurately calibrated, and the reticle on the Huskemaw. With BDC turrets and the G7 rangefinder it's very fast to get into action. I use these for 1000 yard max shooting of deer sized game, and I have been very successful with this scope. My heavier 300WM set up for 1000+ yards for medium and large game hunting has a NF G7 on it. Never cared for the 10 MOA/revolution turrets on the NF. I like the 20MOA/rev turrets, zero stop and reticle on the G7. The weight, and overall appearance of the NF gives the distinct impression of quality and ruggedness that few scopes including the Huskemaw can match. It cost about $600 more than the Huskemaw, but I do like this scope and it is very compatible with the size and weight of my 300WM. It's a hard call between the two. Both have done the job very well for me. Like yourself, I was looking at other options over the NF and found the Huskemaw gave me one which I was pleasantly surprised. IMO.

    Thanks for the reply. I do like the 20 moa turret on my NF and I have the npr1 reticle which is easy to use as well. I am thinking something different for my 06 and 204.
    Good luck hunting this season everyone.

    Brent......I read thru Greyfox comments and agree with most," good and bad". I would give the SIII a look. I have two of them and really like them with the 2 moa reticle.......Rich
