Since it seems that mil-dot reticles are currently a prize pain in the backside to export from the USA does anyone know if the following will or won't upset the state department. Burris ballistic plex or ballistic mildot? Since neither is a true mil-dot reticle.
I would prefer a Gen 2 mildot from Premier reticles but that appears to not be a opyion until the post sept 11 paranoia settles down.

A Nightforce with the R2 reticle is superior for holdovers and also rangfinding, least that's my opinion and I'm stickin to it.
Rangefinding with the R2 is much more simplified as well.
I won't mention how much better I think the scope is than a Burris either.

Maybe consider an IOR with mildot or MP8 rangefinding reticle.

I can give you the contact details so you can deal directly with the manufacturers in Romania. It should work out as cheap as ordering from a US supplier, but without the red tape.

You can view the scopes on the US site

Hi Drawn,
Premier will not export mildot or gen 2 mildot scopes.
Hi 700 Can you cotact me on [email protected] please.
Hi Brent I can get nightforce easily but for this particular job I was looking for a smaller lighter scope than the nightforce and a 1st focal plane reticle so I can use holdovers on any power.
Cheers guy's

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
