What determines the amount of eye relief? I have owned NSX and the bench rest model. How can one type of scope have much more relief. How is it produced??

I have since contacted NF and they told me so to speak. From what I gather it is not one thing but everything about how the scope was designed. Eye lens placment feild of view, type of lens used. All a give a take type of relationship.

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
