Once again, too much gun can be a mistake. I have lived here most of my adult life and I'm an old fart. I don't think your shots will be that long. I was working in that area last week and the populations are good to excellent. They are not big critters. Have fun and stay safe and once you get here welcome to the best state in the country.

I got a new 6.5 PRC and got it to the range today. This is a 3 shot group at 300 yards with Hornady 143 EDLX’s. Not sure if I got lucky, but it was getting hot (94 degrees), so my barrels were heating super fast.

When speaking to the owner he said the average shot distance is 200-250 yards. Most are shot within 150.

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
