Has anyone made the big investment in this scope. It looks like the ultimate. I'm considering getting one.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but it was my understanding the BEAST would be released at a later date. That was what I got from talking with NF.

Thanks Broz, I was reading about it and thought about now it would be here. What I read was quite impressive, from incredible glass to light transmission, mag range, clarity and of course durability. Sounds like a one of a kind even with a 3000+ price tag.

It sounds impressive, I can't wait to here field reports.

I saw them at the shot show. The scope reminds me of buying a new computer program it's looks great but you have to learn how to use it. Lots of buttons and gadgets. Before the shot show I sold 4 of my NSX scopes to get ready to purchase the new beast scopes. After seeing the beast I'm going to buy the atrac scopes.

The turrets are huge. They travel in .5 moa clicks to go .25 click you have to flip a lever to fine tune. The turrets lock. To adjust the turret you have to push a button in to turn the turrets. I just feel there is too much going on. I'm sure it would be fine once you learn how to use it.

After reading about the BEAST and seeing some videos on YouTube, it just seems like a scope that's trying to be too many things to too many people.

Did Horus have anything new at the show? S&B? were they there too?
Google shotshow 2013 and watch the videos.The beast has 4 ret. options.The turret has a lock feature,and a high speed and low adjust that looked simple to me.You dont have to lock it.The windage has a push button lock that they might change.NF site shows the reticles
