I have a sako 75 with 27" 1:8 Krieger #5 in 7mm WSM, and a McMillian stock scheduled to be delivered in about a month. My next choice will be an optic. This is primarily a hunting rifle and based on my calculations I'll be able to get good expansion out to 850 +/- yards on deer sized game (175 ELDx or 180 Berger) The two scope makes I am looking at are 1. Nightforce SHV either the 4-14x50 or 5-20x56 2. Leupold LRP 4.5-14x50 or 6.5-20x50. with moa adjustment and moa reticle. I have narrowed my search down to these two makes. Please don't recommend anything that starts with V and ends with ortex. Any info on those two make and model scopes would be great!
