Express,
I have not used that particular scope but unless SA has really improved their quality we are talkin' apples and oranges.
Wannabee came to mind the whole time I used the SA, that scope was not even close to my NXS's.

Turrets were unreliable (put on elevation, got some windage also virtually every time), optics not even close, illuminated reticle was dead when I took it out of the box - only thing that worked and was neat was the little bubble level inside the field of view at the bottom.

Some people might have great luck with SA scopes, but myself and a bunch of other guys didn't.

Express,

KEEP THE NXS.. trust me.. like Ian said it is like comparing apples to oranges as fas as EVERYTHING is concerned. You are getting arguably one of the best scopes made! Only very few scope top the NXS line in my opinion...

I know what you guys mean about the NF, I already got one and love it, the one thing that really bothers me is that the ranging only works at determined magnification settings. The integral bubble is another great attraction, but I am ordering the B-Square peice that I saw here.

Express,

My Dad likes the SA's. He has three of them and a NF. To me, there is no comparison at all. Be glad you went NF.

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 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
