My .264 WM budget build - Savage 111F LA, Choate sniper stock, Weaver 20 MOA rail, 26" X-caliber 1:7" 5R Sendero contour, PVA barrel nut, .250" recoil lug (don't remember where I got it ?). Work still in progress (need to headspace it, and bed) ...

.264 WM Savage 111F LA + Eliteiron.jpg

(with Elite Iron Bravo SD suppressor)

It is specifically built primarily for the 156 Berger and possibly 160 Matrix VLDs. It will be topped with Leupold 6.5-20 LRP FFP. We'll see how she does.

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


Culture Of Excellence At Nightforce Optics
By Len Backus

A high level of quality both in production and in service. Read More


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


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


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
