Yes I think we can all agree (eaven thought I am a tried and true Leupold guy and my tactical scopes are leupold Mk4 s) the Nightforce is significantly better and then there is the winning category of BEST taken by U.S. Optics with Schmidt Bender a close second  a point which may well be argued by some. IOR is also a scope worth a look but U.S. Optics SN3 with EREK and a GAP reticle is the ultimate sniper scope. However I would love to have a Nightforce 5.5-22x56 Having said that there is a significant price difference in each step up.

Agreed; HOWEVER, the new premier scope might give USO a run for the title, I'll know in a few weeks - hopefully.

Nightforce is a much better scope than the Leupold - you get MUCH more for the money.  And since Leupold now isn't "Made in the USA,' they don't have that marketing ploy to rest on.

as others said, NF is a much better scope than leupy, and best part you can match MIL/MIL, or MOA/MOA. MK4's with ranging style reticles are all MIL, and  before they only offered MOA knobs, now they offer 1 model with MIL knobs.
 
i'd argue on the USO being better than S&B statement. my S&B's get used the most, and see some pretty harsh stuff, and have never had a problem. ive had 4 USO's have to be fixed, and they didnt see that much use. now i was taken care of with 100% customer service, and product was fine, but IMO when you spend $2000+ for a optic, they shouldnt have that many failures. and when it comes to glass, the S&B's glass is no doubt brighter, and has higher resolution. when it comes to features, its no doubt USO is ahead there. but being the best, i would have to say S&B is better.
 
as far as the premier scope, it looks like its going to be great, but ill wait until they have a couple of years under their belt before i buy one.

Thanks for all the input, keep it coming if you have more...I am really leaning towards Nightforce but will look up the ones you mentioned. Yeah, price is the biggest thing right now so I am trying to get the most out of my loosing dollar...thanks

well you simply cannot get more for you $$ with nightforce. glass is almost to that of S&B, equal of USO, you can get matched adjustments, and reticles, and it comes illuminated, and you can get zero stop. with my S&B PMII's i can see MAYBE 3-4 minutes longer at night than i can with my NF NXS's, and my USO's are rightt here with them. the USO glass has jsut a touch more resolution though.
 
to get better than NF, you need to spend twice as much, and get a S&B IMO. and S&B is 2X better. i like S&B's more because of FFP, and i like having the horus reticle, which cant be installed in NF's.
