    OK! I have just received my Rem 700-sps tactical 308, B&C A2 stock, 20 MOA base and leupold rings. It is now time to purchase the glass! I want a nightforce scope and would like to keep it around $1800 +/-. i will be shooting MOA. What model/series that you would guys would suggest. The gun is going to be used shooting out to 800 yards and would like to be capable of shooting farther when I upgrade the barrel without having to buy a different scope. I would rather spend the money now on something that will be more than capable of meeting my needs. Thanks in advance for all your advice and help.

    NXS 3.5-15X50 or 5.5-22X50 with the NP-R1 Reticle. I have three of the .35-15X50s and love them all MOA. All the newer ones come with high speed turrets and you can also get zero stop if you prefer.

    I will also recommend you consider using NF rings as well.

    I really like the np-r1 reticle as well. my personal choice is the 5.5-22x56 zerostop.

    i just bought my second one (this time from cabelas). they have them for 1869.99.

    the zero stops are less money
