Gary,The 223 mostly paper punching, and some P-Dogging. The 243 coyotes maybe deer. I'm not a big fan of the 50mm objectives. I like the 42 -44mm objectives better, but that is just me. With the 32mm how is the clarity?
Gary, before you buy this scope you might want to check out the NF 8x32x56 NXS with the NPR2 reticle. This scope is designed for "extreme"(beyond 1000 yards) long distance and moving target applications. You can "range" target distance and it comes with "illuminated reticle on/off" for dusk or dawn apps. I have a 3 shot group on the cross hairs of a target at 400 yards that measures ".523" inch. There are eight witness signatures and one of them took first place(Roger Avery) at the April/May IBS tournament in Augusta Ga(2008) last year. This scope will give you everything including the PS/ATN 22 night vision capabilities out to 600 yards at night. These scopes are the "Quill" of all scopes. Need More? [email protected] I'll send you the pictures.Has any one had any hands on with this scope? I'm needing a scope for my 223 bolt gun, and my use it on my 243.
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
