I agree with you and you are basing your stats on knowing that the shot is exactly 1000 yards . What if the animal walks to 980yards or 1050yards after you range them while you are getting ready to shoot? I'm not a statistician but I bet it would change the stats. With an elk that is only a couple steps up or down a hill.Feel free to comment on my idea, as I would like to know if anyone else thinks the same way.
I realized that the standard deviation of the shot pattern plays an effect on that 57% miss number I gave. It would actually be smaller. Haven't put numbers to that yet.....for all you statisticians out there.
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
