Re: Nightforce -- BEAST

The turrets are huge. They travel in .5 moa clicks to go .25 click you have to flip a lever to fine tune. The turrets lock. To adjust the turret you have to push a button in to turn the turrets. I just feel there is too much going on. I'm sure it would be fine once you learn how to use it.

    After reading about the BEAST and seeing some videos on YouTube, it just seems like a scope that's trying to be too many things to too many people.

    For the 3000+ $$$ if thats what you want to spend, you might want to consider the Daon Optical March-FX 5x-40x56mm for around the same $$$$. They also have a 5 year warranty.

    Google shotshow 2013 and watch the videos.The beast has 4 ret. options.The turret has a lock feature,and a high speed and low adjust that looked simple to me.You dont have to lock it.The windage has a push button lock that they might change.NF site shows the reticles
