I am moving up to the higher quality end of scopes so to speak which I will need for my SnipeTac338 for them long range shots. Some time ago I clearly watched a good stag standing broadside to me at 792 yards looking through my x15 Swarovski binoculars at late afternoon light. When I went to take the shot I could not pick that stag up in my 5.5-22x56 NightForce scope no matter what I did or how hard I tried. I even backed the magnification back down to around x12 to x15 but still could not pick up the stag and everything else did not appear as clear as I was seeing with my binoculars. To put it simply the light gathering ability in poor light conditions amazed me somewhat despite the fact that these scopes have some excellent optics to say the least. So now I am looking at higher quality scopes in the quest for better light gathering in poor light conditions so that I do not experience this same sort of thing happening again. Does anyone have any experience with either or both of these scopes to comment and to help me to decide upon which scope to choose and your reasons why please. All comments will be greatly appreciated.
