Found the scope I was looking for after only 45minutes with a WTB ad in the classifieds.

It does not have the reticle I wanted but got a great deal. I think I can have it changed but thought I would give it a try with the Mil Dot.

Any advice as to how these things work...COMPLETELY in the dark on mil dots. I have printed NF user manual and reticle manual. Would like to know how to range deer, coyotes, and crows? The more simple the better.

Thanks for the help,

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
