I grabbed 2 boxes from Midway also. Planning to try them in my 6.5 PRC and possibly 6.5x284. My fear is they will shoot well and then I won't be able to find any more!

So what cartridge and what twist is everyone gonna run with these? Figures i just built a 6.5 saum with an 8 twist... not gonna stabilize... not sure what to do now!
I'll be using them in an 1:8" saum and I'm at sea level. I think you should be just fine to stabilize them.

My 6.5-06 has a tired bore and my 140 vld accuracy dropped off. The 156 EOL today were shooting right at .5 moa after just a couple of tweaks to the load. So they don't seem too finicky. Loading up some more to test next week but may have it already. RL26.

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
