I've only looked through them but I liked the Atacr 4x16-42 f1 the best, I couldn't hardly see the reticle of the kahles and for a hunting rifle it would be very bulky, but you might like that, I couldn't really tell a whole lot of difference between the glass someone else might but they were about the same to me

The NF 4-16x42 ATACR has become my favorite hunting scope. I like the low profile and the turret feel is very nice and crisp. Glass is very nice.

As for the F1 vs SFP, i always ran SFP hunting scopes but that is beginning to change. Reason is when running a 25x scope and wish to say turn power down to take a closer shot, I dont have to be figuring out what the right wind hold is with my scope reticle.

Other side of the argument is its hard to pick up a F1 reticle when turning the power down and there is relevance to that argument if turning a 25x scope down to 10 but your ok if stay above 15x. Same with the 4-16x42, you might have difficulty with the reticle on 4x.

For me accurate wind holds and appropriate scope for the hunt overcomes the above problems with a F1 reticle.

It's all what you're most comfortable with. I have started using all FFP in Mil and will never look back because it is just so much easier to me.

If weight is a concern, I would look at the AMG Razor at 28 oz. Glass is pretty close to my Kahles and Schmidt.

If weight isn't a concern, I personally would take my Kahles K624i over my Schmidt PM II. The Kahles only weighs 5 oz more than the AMG.

Just too many choices and a lot of good scopes out there. Best of luck in your search!

Been through a bunch of scopes and these are my favorites right now for dedicated hunting rig. March 3-24x42 FFp and AMG. Glass on both are great as are turrets. If u want compact that march without sunshade is tiny.

I've been running the 3.5x18 X5 with the MOA reticle for 2 years now, I don't think there is a better long range hunting specific scope. I've literally killed for 30 feet to almost 1300 yards. The low light is awesome, and it's pretty lights.
