    You can't go wrong with a Nightforce. I have a 3-15x50mm F1 on order. I've shot a number of rifles with Nightforce optics mounted and the glass is good but the adjustments are excellent being very positive and extremely repeatable. There's a reason why many of the best long range match shooters use Nightforce ... by "match" I mean square range with paper targets such as F-Class, Benchrest etc.

    i agree with what 1858 said, and will add that some of their reticles are better than others so put some thought into which you choose.

    also, as you may know, they just announced several new products, so it's quite likely that you will find some good deals on their current/older models as others rush to upgrade.

    Nightforce

    I have been a long range (1000yd) shooter for years and shoot a lot of 50 BMG, 338 lapua, 300 rum, etc.....the Nightforce is without a doubt an excellent optic......when you see what the 50 cal competitiors are shooting at the FCSA nationals, the majority of them are Nightforce.....These are folks who shoot sub MOA groups with 50 BMG rifles at 1000yds...Quite impressive.
    Nightforce makes a great optic.

    I think it's an excellent part of the right system but still only one part. You will be stuck with one less thing to blame if you miss though.

    That was real informative :confused: :banghead:



    You'll will find that Nightforce makes some robust scopes that have great optical clarity, repeatable turret adjustments, a good reticle selection and illumination comes standard. Other added features include first and second plane reticle options, MOA and MIL adjustments and models with zero stops. They are certainly not for everyone but they do have a large following with folks shooting benchrest,F class, tactical and hunters that demand the best out of their equipment.

    I been throwing hints (for my darling to let me get my self one) for a while. I really want a N/F or a U.S. Optic. I'd settle for the N/F. It's gonna take a lot of shoes and new "outfits" to catch me up.
