From the dim distant past I remember my training said that the Coriolis effect was worst if you were shooting north or south direction . If you shoot directly East or West the Earth and the target is moving in the same direction as the bullet well along the same line .Doesn't spin drift go up and to the right? And isn't the Coriolis affect the affect of the earth rotation on the POI? hence shooting east POI is lower and west its higher or do I have this backwards?
So, at 800-1000 yards, you would not worry about SD and coriolis?But I only employ the coriolis to be part of shots beyond 1200 yards as the effects are usually small before that.
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
