If I were to go with the ATACR, I would have to get new 34mm rings. All is an added expense. I guess I'm trying to justify the cost and worth.

    I have plenty of NF scopes, but not the new ATACR. Personally, If I were considering moving from the NXS, I would step up to the S&B 5x25. The prescription glass in the S&B is the best there is...If you had the S&B to play with in the field, you would justify the cost.

    I currently do not own a NF......S&B is a little out of my range!

    What do you have now that you want to compare the NF to?

    I want to compare the standard NXS to the ATACR. On my 300 ultra and 270 WBY, I was using a Leupold LPS 3.5-14x50! I want to see how the ED glass in the ATACR compares to the NXS.

    Don't think you'll have sufficient "environment" in the show to determine if there is a difference. May want to find a dark corner of the building in the ceiling area to see a discernable difference.
