Morning >> Is this new scope anything to get excited about for 1000 yd. - 1500 yd. varmint rigs? I have a Sightron 3-12x42MD on my .264 WinMag and like it very much but these seem to be two very different types of scope. 40x would seems to be benificial with small gophers and such at extreme ranges but wonder about that 42mm objective. Is this a problem for the scope? Most quality high power scopes that I've seen seem to come with bigger 50mm +/- objectives. Would 42mm give all that's required for success on long range shots? I'd also much rather have the mil-dot rather then just the dot reticle and have been in contact with Sightron to see if the 10-40x will be offered with MD any time soon. Yet to hear back. Anyway, experiences would be appreciated. Especially any of you who have been using 42mm Sightron scopes from their current line for your long range shooting. Thanks. >> klallen

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

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
