I do a lot of shooting at 300 yards and remember one day with 3 guys and the following equipment:How is the clarity at 14 power on the ziess? And has anyone done a comparison side by side with a NF? I love my NXS but its a little heavy for a carry gun, but I sure do love the clarity.
I owned a 5.5x22 nxs and a 6.5x20 conguest concurrently and both had excellent clarity and repeatability. I did love the nightforce, but it was heavy, as you stated, and also cost almost double and had half the vertical per rotation. I did like the nightforce reticle better.......RichHow is the clarity at 14 power on the ziess? And has anyone done a comparison side by side with a NF?

Everywhere you read about these comparisons, folks like the Zeiss Conquest. The new Leupold VX-3 has every bit as good an optics, costs less, and weighs about 2/3rds of the Zeiss Conquest. I prefer the B&C reticle on the Leupold as Zeiss' Rapid Z is too busy to effectively see the target. Best of all, Leupold is every bit as good a product and is made in America! Nuff said!For a $1000 scope, whats the scope to get.....thanks
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
