I intend to use this gun for long range hunting, but don't plan to carry it through the woods as a primary rifle. I am confident in taking 1,000 yard shots with a nice target scope and range card, but would not be able to do so with a 3-10 hunting scope.
I believe I need a 5-20 power scope for my needs. I also have 3 Nikon Monarchs and am extremely happy with them and they are an exceptional value, but if I were going to upgrade then now is the time.
Anybody have an opinion on the
6-20X50 Vortex Viper
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 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
