    I have gone through this forum and read all I can about Nightforce and IOR Valdada, even the Problem Jeff in Tx. had, but I still can't make my mind up...HELP

    It will be used for varmint hunting during the day and at night. So I know I want the illuminated crosshair option. Here is what I have decided to choose between:

    Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X56 with NP-R2 Reticle
    IOR VALDADA 4-14x50 Illuminated MP8 Reticle

    All thoughts and opinions are welcome

    Thanks

    Both are great scopes. You cant really go wrong with either one.

    Slight edge goes to IOR for me. The glass quality, and the price make it simple.

    It's really a matter of opinion..sakofan..And theres mine. [​IMG]

    Zack,

    I've been through a lot with IOR over the past few months. I'm glad to say they have some very good reps that really care and are helping to make sure the folks in-charge see the light.

    I'm happy to say that IOR has agreed to replace my scope. It went out in the mail yesterday and I should have the new one by end of next week.

    What I went through should have never happened, but due to the support of Jim Moloney things have been made right.

    Give Jim a call (785-937-2818) and talk to him about your requirments and see if he can't get you taken care of. [​IMG]
