The task is to use and evaluate this new scope while prairie dog shooting as soon as practical this year based on PD seasonal availability. And then to write an article with pictures for publication on LRH. ============================================= The Nightforce SHV 4-14x56 rifle scope is a game changer. Who would have thought that a rifle scope worthy of the Nightforce name would be available at such an affordable price. By simplifying the options, controls and manufacturing process Nightforce is able to provide the extremely high quality their optics have become known for at a price that won't break the bank. 56mm objective lens for maximum light transmission. Fully enclosed, capped, waterproof adjustments with .250 MOA click values. Elevation and windage adjustments are finger-adjustable - no coins or tools necessary. Indicator can be easily reset to "0" once you've established your zero. 10 MOA per revolution on elevation turret 30mm tube, 100 MOA total elevation travel, 70 MOA windage. 4x to 14x variable magnification, applicable to widest possible range of field environments. Parallax settings are marked in yards. While field conditions can cause variations in exact yardage, the SHV’s™ markings will get you closer, quicker, to the crispest, clearest image possible. Fast-focus European-style eyepiece. One of the most popular, most versatile reticles we’ve ever created, specially modified for the SHV™ with only the floating center crosshair illuminated (on illuminated models). 1 MOA elevation and windage markings allow accurate rangefinding and hold-offs at long ranges. The floating center crosshair provides outstanding precision on smaller targets. The illuminated floating center crosshairs are adjustable in 11 increments from off to bright. They will not produce the flare common to many “smart” reticles.
