I would have probably selected the same rings for a 50mm as were used for this SHV, so would have had the same scope height.

Thanks ! That's what I needed to know.

Re: Nightforce SHV 4-14X56 Riflescope Review

Ernie Bishop and I used one for some prairie dog shooting last month in Wyoming. That scope used the IHR reticle. Ernie loved it. I prefer the MOAR reticle myself.

He'll be writing about our experience soon.

Here's a picture of the one we had mounted on one of my new LRR rifles with the Manners EH-1 stock and a fluted barrel, chambered in 7mm Dakota.

Re: Nightforce SHV 4-14X56 Riflescope Review

I mounted up one of the new SHV's on my xp-100 .243 wssm.



Very nice glass for the $$$.
Excellent clarity and brightness, and I really like the MOA reticle. -Very precise.
It's only been to the range to get a zero and shoot groups, and the tracking was perfect.

The only complaint that I have (small) is the turrets don't have as "tactile feel" as what you expect from a NF scope. -Just a little soft.

I will be doing a LR steel shoot in a few weeks, and will be able to form a more objective opinion after that.

-Mike
