Re: WTT/Sell -- NightForce for Leupold
Ric and Speed
I have had her try both ways to shoot and we just can't seem to work it out yet. She is having more problems with this every year.
For clarity (for me) the Leupold LR 8 1/2X to 25X and the 16X Mark 4 seems to be about the best I have looked through, especially the Leupold LR. If you really want clarity in a fixed power scope, look through a 2" Unertl 15X or 20X target or Ultra varmint. I have NEVER seen better.
The Mark 4 I have has the fine cross hairs with a small target dot. I don't use a scope that has a lot of rangefinding or mill dots or figures in the view. I want just a dot and fine cross hairs so I can click to the various yardages.
I have tried most all scopes on the market and "have" had 4 Nightforce scopes and three of them were brand new.
To "my eyes", the Leupold LR has a sharper image then the NF when both scopes are set on the SAME power say 22X.
I have friends who feel the same way as I do after looking through both of them side by side and at the same range and power setting.
I think either scope is a quality item and would be a "toss up" in optical clarity to most shooters.
I did say to "my eyes" the Leupold is sharper and with more clarity. Maybe it's not that way with other shooters?
