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.

Re: Nightforce -- BEAST

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.
