Let's say at 500 yards the come up is 9.75 and with a 1/4 MOA scope you dial that. With a 1/2 MOA scope you dial 9.5 or 10 so you are off 1/4MOA which at 500 yards is about 1 1/4 inch and at 800 its about 2 inches. Any of that gets you into a 10 inch kill zone deer or elk and would take a coyote out. Might have a little trouble taking out a rock chuck though.Thats the thing that worries me. That scope it the exact one im looking at. The 1/2" just seems like alot when you get out past 500yd or so.
Think about it, if each click is 1/4 inches you can adjust to within 1/8th inch of where you want to hit on the target. WIth a 1/2 inch click, you can get within 1/4 inches of where you need to be. Unless you and your gun is capable of 1/8th inch groups you don't need 1/4 inch/MOA clicks.Hey guys, I've been looking at the vortex hs long range scope. The thing that has me worried is the 1/2" moa. What do you guys think about 1/2" over 1/4". This will be on a 300 mag hunting rifle only. Thanks for any info!
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
