I am trying to sight in a new scope but am having problem with scatter. I am getting about 4" scatter at 100 yrds. I have tried 50 G v-max and factory 50gr soft points. I get 2-3 shots within 1" then next shoot will be 4" off L-R, next shoot will also be 4" off. Please help...

are the mounts and rings tight ? did the gun shoot ok before you replaced the scope ? are the stock screws tight ? did you ding the barrel crown with a bore sighter ? these are a couple of ideas that I have . Jim

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
