All wieghts are in grams. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. The wieghts are all holding tight. I have way too much free time on my hands. Thought you might find this interesting.

I think I have the same problem (tto much time). I figured the SD's for all three lots of bullets and to better compare I've figured the % of average of the SD. Here goes (my math may be fuzzy but they are all figured in the same manner)....

220 grain SMK

AVG= 14.276 g.
SD= .0102 g.
%SD= .071448
-------------
52 grain SMK

AVG= 3.375 g.
SD= .0026 g.
%SD= .077037
-------------
52 grain AMAX

AVG= 3.378 g.
SD= .0055 g.
%SD= .162818

Looks like the Sierras are more than twice as considtent as the AMAXes. OK...back to cleaning the garage!!!!!

small differences in weight do not affect bullet flight near as much as small differences in ogive to base distance, and the squareness of the base to the major diameter cylinder, and point concentricity to the maj.dia. cylinder.

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
