Sorry I don't have one at 1000 but this is one from 1670 yards. The view through the scope was much clearer than what the picture depicts.

Looks like a NF 5.5X22 with the NP-R2 reticule..

Re: I need a picture through a scope at 1k+

Sorry about that. I just figured that was a given.

NightForce 5.5-22x56 at 1670 yards on 22x with parallax set correctly, reticle illumination off, set level w/reticle perfectly verticle, facing E/NE, 8:34 a.m., elevation 3856', .98 cosine angle, temp 41 deg, hum 46%, station pressure 25.21, wind from 7:30 at 12.5 mph, mounted in NF rings on Nesika 20 moa base, front 6-9" bipod w/PodLoc, rear Redman bag.

There we go, don't want to get it confused with anything else. Don't know why I didn't include all of the info the first time.;);)

Thanks for the pics!

Do you think 22x is enough for shooting at a mile? I'm deciding on a scope after my 338 Lapua Ackley is done...after I get a 31 on my ACT.

It's down to 5.5-22, 8-32, and 12-42 scopes I believe...Nightforce seems to be the consensus for long range shooting under the price of S&B's.

Re: I need a picture through a scope at 1k+

Whatever you end up with, make sure that with the zero range you want that you have enough elevation adjustment to get to the yardage you want with the round/load/bullet you use.

Some have 100 moa+ adjustment and some don't.

With quality glass 22x will work at one mile unless you're aiming at a very small target.;)

Some say that you can use the hash marks in the NF and gain an addition 20-30 moa but I can tell you that if you end up using the bottom hash mark to make up for a lack in elev. turret adjustment that you will be using a very limited field of view as opposed to dialing and using the center crosshair and thus using the full field of view. To each his own though.
