With my new Raptor XL replacing most of my XHS in the future, this big girl will be one of the last to ship from APS in this configuration. This model has truly been a work horse for me and my shop.

this one uses a 36” straight taper Bartlein and easily met my accuracy standard driving a 350 gr SMK to well over 3300 fps for the accuracy test load. Top loads in this rifle pushed 3400 fps easily allowing 4-5 firings per case. I recommend loads that allow 8-10 firings per case so that is the reason for the lower performance accuracy test load.

pleasure to shoot, for this level of power, EXTREMELY low recoil and long range precision is simply easy....

also really like the Flame Transition pattern from McMillan! Will see that on more APS rifles coming soon to be shipped!!

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 new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


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
