This is my first time to post. I have been reading on this forum for years. I finished the break in period on this gun and couldn't get it to shoot better than 1.5 MOA at 200 yards. I also thought the gun was too heavy for my Elk hunt in Montana so I swapped out the stock with a 20oz Proof and changed the trigger to a Calvin Elite and I am very satisfied all the way around. I had to open up the barrel channel and make room for the side bolt release, but this stock will work. I also bedded it with Devcon and it is rock solid. Even with the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56mm it is still barely over 9lbs and is shooting in less than a inch at 200 yards. I am waiting on my Kestrel 5700 4DOF so that I can stretch this thing out, but so far I love this gun!

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 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
