check CLOSE for small tear in the material in the I.D. portion of the donut, as this will cause some really weird problems. SIMMS will replace it if you find this, I discoverd the tear problem the hard way.Yes, and No. I used the X ring on a Win 70 Featherweight in 30-06. We slid the thing on about an inch from the fore end and shot a few groups with factory ammo. It cut the groups in half! The in an effort to improve accuracy we slid it around to different places on the rifle. Accuracy went out the door and we could never find that sweet spot again. We shot 150-160 rnds before we threw that sucker in the trash.
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 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
