I am "kind of" having trouble with a Remington 799 in 222 Remington. It shoots one hole groups but if i clean the barrel it shoots like 5in 3 shot groups for the first probably 40 rounds before it settles in. Any idea why and how to cure this? I was thinking about trying some moly bullets to see if that would help settle it in faster. The load is 21.5 grains of h-322 with a 50 grain sierra blitz king or v-max.

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
