have not used them but those that I have talked to that shoot in F class to 900m (Calgary, AB) have found them to be really good. They claim that the optics are up there with the best European grades and the adjustments are second to none. Metal to metal throughout. If they are as good as they claim, they would be much cheaper then Nightforce and in some cases cheaper then Leupold. Also, the reticle styles are a lot more useful then mildots.

If you can look through one and try it that will be the only way to know for sure. Check out for more info.

Good luck...



Yes IOR Valdada scopes are among the very best. I have the literature at home and according to them, the glass is made in a factory in Bucharest and supplies the glass for Ziess, Saworksi, Leica, and a few other well-known scope manufactures. For the price they are the best bang for the buck. I have a set of their medium, and high rings and a set of their bases. Very strong and well made I have no problems with their quality and matches a few of the others out their also i.e. Badger Ord, and Leupold.

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 ATACR Scope Review

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

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
