looking at a new scope im thinking of 3.5-15nxs or 5.5-22 nxs this is a hunting rig 100 to 600 yds but want to play with 1000 is 15 enough or is 22 required? thinking on the np-p2. what other scopes are worth looking at around $1000 to $1500
Tired- I left the Night Force Brochure in Las Vegas so I don’t remember what they call it, and they have not posted it on their web-site. But… there is a brand new, very cool second focal plane mil radian reticle, somewhat similar to Premiere’s 2nd Generation reticle. The difference is in the size of the Mil / Hash Marks, the “Post” arraignment (cannot remember if it has any) and the clicks are in 1/10th of a mil. It is available in the 5.5 – 22 x 56mm and the 3.5 – 15 x 50mm. Whether you click or hold over, you will probably appreciate it very much. If you like Premiere's 2nd Generation mil-dot reticle, you wll Love Night Force's new mil-dot. 15X is just fine for making shots out to and beyond 1000 yards. It is nice though to have the extra power for spotting/observing.
Nightforce just announced a 5.5-22 by 50mm that is a very nice optic. Also brought out a new mildot reticle that uses all tick-marks instead of dots and has a turret that is adjustable in mils, ten clicks to the mil.
They just get better and better. I really like the new 2.5-10 hunting scope - hope to do a hunt with it this spring.
Three turrets and a 30mm tube, just like any NXS. No mention of $, not sure where it will fit in but will not be cheap. They had a hunting type reticle I believe and I cannot remember a **** thing about it. Still the same illumination by pulling out the side focus turret. Super wide field of view and bright. They have a nice new catalog, might be wise to request one. Also had titanium rings, light but very $$$.
Thanks Ian. I was kind of thinking they made up a scope a bit different than the usual, cheaper average hunter type basically. Sounds like it's a bit more compact 3.5-15x50 NXS. I'll check on the new literature. Thanks again Ian.
