JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU GUYS THAT I TRIED OUT THE BERGER VLD ON A DOE ANTELOPE IN WYOMING THIS WEEKEND. I WAS SHOOTING MY CUSTOM 6.5-.284 WHICH PUSHES THESE BULLETS AT 3100 FPS. I HIT THE DOE JUST A LITTLE UP FROM THE BRISKET AND IT EXPLODED LIKE A BOMB AS IT WENT THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF HER RIBCAGE. THE ONLY THINGS THAT DIDN'T GET BLOWN OUT WERE THE HEART AND LUNGS! MY LEICA 1200 LRF SAID SHE WAS 1030 YARDS OUT. NOT BAD FOR A "PAPER BULLET". INCIDENTALLY, THIS IS THE GUN/LOAD COMBO THAT GOT ME IN THE VHA 1500 YARD CLUB THIS SUMMER ON A ROCKCHUCK. I FIGURED IF IT WAS ACCURATE ENOUGH FOR A CHUCK, IT SHOULD BE ACCURATE ENOUGH FOR A GOAT!

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


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
