    I am in the market to buy a scope for my .338 lapua and my question is this... I have a 20 MOA base and would like to get the gun capable of shooting ideally to 2000 yards but realistically 1760 yards. So my question is with a 20 moa base what's my choices of Scopes? I'm looking at the NF NXS 5.5-22x56 and a Schmidt And Bender pm 5-25x56. Any other suggestions will work as well. Thanks for any help or directions you can give.

    No experience with S&B or knowledge on the travel, but quick math says with a 100 MOA of travel in the NXS, and 20 MOA base you'll be fine. send it.

    Sweet I thought the NF would be enough to get me there especially if the Leupold Mark 4 ER scope is supposed to be a 2000m scope. I was just second guessing myself. Also the NF saves me some green. Thanks for the reply.
