Been toying w/ buying a nightforce either 8x32 or 12x42. Will be using it for targets and prairie dogs both past 600 yards. will be mounted on a 6x284 Win. Is the new NXS that much better or will the old benchrest model suit me fine. Is the glass any better-- basically what else comes w/ the 30% higher price tag?

not exactly sure what you mean by that " wind reader or shoot and spot". I would gues that I do both. The rifle I'll mount the NF on will be 22-25 lbs. w/ a muzzle brake. I hope to be able to spot my shot out to 500 yards or so. Wind is probably the most difficult variable to guess at longer ranges.

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
