HI,
I've never taken a shot much past 450 and was wondering if you guys dial up your scopes to the next time zone or just aim waaaay high on shots on the far side of 500? BTW do you use simple duplex reticles or the springfield armory type range compensating devices...

We dial the proper MOA into our scope I use a Wild optical range finder and a standerd scope 8x32 power.

I think you will find that most dial up for elevation adjustment. There are too many variables to depend on a BDC reticle. They rarely match up in the real world.

For accurate range measurement, get a laser rangefinder. I use a Leica 800 and can recommend this strongly.

Make sure that your scope has accurate and repeatable adjustments. Big magnification is not really necessary. Work up a good load and build a drop table out to the max range you want to hunt. Do lots of practise and enjoy the hunt.

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
