They are both fine scopes, the 3.5-10 LR M1 is more similar to the operation of the 4-14 since the M3 is a unique turret that has much coarser adjustments. Uses trajectory collars that may or may not match your ammo and only requires one revolution from top to bottom.

The 3.5-10's (M1) have MK4 turrets on them, much heavier and nicer turrets. The 4-14 is quite a bit bigger in overall size, it is a fine scope. We hunt with both, but on the range we always shoot tighter groups with the 14's since you can hold better.

Unless we are setup in a hide or blind with a good rest, we rarely carry the scope on maximum power.

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

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
