Well, since you appear to be located in the small town where Nightforce is located, I'm guessing you have to have that opinion.My first FFP (First Focal Plane) scope was a Nightforce NXS 5.5x24x50 in NP-1 Reticle. Followed by 3 more after the latitude adjustment rotation amounts were changed in the next models. Then an SHV model and then to the ATACR once they made the crosshairs thinner in 5x25x56. My longest range shooting scope is their ATACR in 7x35x56 which I feel is too much for hunting as I prefer the 3.5x15x56 SHV model. Nightforce is the toughest scope made in my opinion. The only problem I experienced was of my making but the were great about repairing it for me.
