Quietmike, you need to do a search on this topic which has been beat to death. Your question is a valid one of course and the answer would be similarNot this again right? I've read through several threads in searches and still can't make a decision.
Just starting out and want programs for a laptop and a handheld (axim x30).
If you were starting over which would you pick and why?
Let's see what LoadBase has:Exbal, if nothing else for the reticle tool it has that I have not seen anyone else have.
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
