Mainly i want an opinion on which recticle to get as i am looking at the
What are you going to use the rifle for? Varmints, Target, Deer sized game?
Is it a factory rifle with a 24 inch barrel?
Its a custom made rifle using a ruger action and a 26 inch schilon barrel.
Targets are Roos and deer.
In Australia you need tags from National parks to control roo numbers and we have several hundread to fill on 2 properties.
Ranges are as long as you want to make them.
I use and highly recommend the NPR-2 Reticle..
Thats the 1 i was lookig at . Also the clicks on a NF are in moa not iphy arent they.
With a 26 inch custom barrel you can probably get the 105/7's VLDs to about 3200 fps, maybe a little more. This will reliably kill a 100#-150# small boned animal to at least 1K. While the BC of these bullets are high for 6mm's, they are still subject to a lot of wind drift at long range so things can and will go wrong on the windy days.
So a lot would depends upon your hunting style and whether you will be taking short range shots of 50 yards and staying under 1K. I personally would like a little more top end power for a scope than 15X but I suppose I could live with it if I needed to take a lot of short range shots.
The Nightforce is graduated in MOA.
Yes the Nightforce adjustments are in true MOA and not IPHY..I realy like mt 3.5X15 NXS scopes.
