During testing with my new Ultra mag, I was using 240gr MK and not getting very good accuracy. Burnt a lot of powder and did all sorts of tweaks but groups were poor with many wild flyers. Considering the quality of barrel and install, it was confusing.

Eventually bought another box of bullets and groups shrank. Problem, orig bullet not good.

Had a good talk with Duane at their tech dept and he asked for samples which I sent. After a few weeks of their testing, they confirmed what I already knew, bullets out of whack. They have since sent me another box of 240gr MK which replaces those goofey ones. Unfortunately, they wouldn't replace the powder and components spent in my testing.

So overall, I am happy with them standing behind their product. Too bad their QC let out some bad ones. I guess with mass production, it happens sometimes.

Thanks to Sierra and my cannon is very happy with its new diet.

Nighthawk, yes it is a RUM with a 35" barrel.

Winter is setting in so not much shooting but hopefully, get a chance over the Xmas break.

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
