Rod from Utah

I have enjoyed a lifetime of hunting and fishing in Utah, thanks for allowing me to join this forum. I stumbled upon it looking for some good start up loads for my Hells Canyon X-Bolt the boys gave to me last Christmas. I have a limited entry elk tag I will be utilizing it on this fall topped with a Vortex viper scope with 200 grain ELD-X rounds we have worked up. Already popping an 18" gong at 1k yards.

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you're all set.

What cartridge are you shooting in the pics?

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

A high level of quality both in production and in service. Read More

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

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

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
