    do you mean the Benchrest models and the NXS?

    1/8 (BR) vs 1/4 minute (NXS) clicks and about half the MOA for elevation with the Br models.

    Ok i see. The NF models are the Benchrest ones then. Thanks Bounty Hunter. I take it the main difference then is the amount of adjustment you have.

    Thanks again

    The NXS models are designed to with stand 1200 G's both positive and negative. The Benchrest series is designed to withstand 800 G's both positive and negative......[​IMG]

    Thanks jpw

    I have just ordered a 3.5 - 15 x 50 NXS with R2 ret from scopeusout.com

    I spoke to Dianne and Bill what a fantastic level of service.

    Price in the UK $2168

    Price in the US from Bill and Dianne $1338

    Got some friends there at the moment who are coming back to the UK on Thursday so it is on next day to meet the timescales and i will then pick it up at the weekend (if all goes to plan). Happy days. Can't wait to play at long range with it.
